Repowering an old lift truck can look like an economical way to extend the life of a valuable asset. But it’s more likely to pile on added costs. Here’s why:
- A lot of the wear on a fork truck isn’t in the drivetrain. It’s hidden throughout the machine and can lead to unexpected downtime and repairs.
- New fork trucks are more productive. If you’re paying operators to spend more time handling materials, you’re bleeding money.
- You’re sacrificing fuel efficiency and reducing the profitability of your operations every hour a repowered machine is in service.
