UniCarriers Forklift Operating Costs
When budgeting for your industrial equipment, do not forget to budget in the hourly cost of operation, which is significant. Operation costs include:
- Fuel/electric power
- Fuel cells
- Replacement parts
These costs typically increase along with the size of the forklift itself, especially for internal combustion models.
Figuring the total cost for powering the lift requires determining the number of work hours in a year. Typically, a year includes around 250 work days. However many hours per day your crew runs the forklift represents the number of work hours per year.
In general, electric-powered forklifts cost significantly less to operate. The cost to power your electric forklift depends on (1) the cost of electricity in your area and (2) the efficiency of your charger. As a general estimate, though, you can budget around $3 per charge for an electric forklift. The hourly cost depends on how many hours that charge lasts.
A fuel-powered forklift averages around $30 to fill the tank, assuming a 7-gallon diesel tank or a 33-pound propane tank. Again, the total cost depends on how long you can operate the machine on a single tank of fuel. Typically, you get a max of 8 hours from a tank.
Finally, consider maintenance costs in your budget as well. Figured annually, they average around $3 per hour for an electric machine and around $30 per hour for forklifts with internal combustion engines.
