Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/15/2016 -- Topper Industrial addressed benefits of a fork truck free initiative. Executives at Topper Industrial discussed how critical it is to consider more than the initial price tag of a fork truck. The sticker price, in fact, represents just a small portion of the total cost of ownership according to Ed Brown, founder. The acquisition cost is only about 10 to 20 percent of the total cost of the forklift truck, maintenance and repairs represent the rest.
Fork truck free initiatives are increasingly popular as sufficient data has revealed the true cost of fork truck ownership. Where purchasing managers are focused on lowest cost acquisition, operations managers must account for the extensive budgetary requirements in maintaining the fork truck fleet.
The ergonomic benefits, along with safety enhancements, increase the likelihood of North American fork truck free operations.
