Cat Lift Trucks Launches Lift Truck Cost Calculator Tool

In response to the material handling industry’s shift towards electric lift trucks, Cat Lift Trucks (http://www.cat-lift.com) has launched its Lift Truck Cost Comparison Tool, a free web resource that evaluates the total cost savings between electric alternating current (AC) and internal combustion (IC) lift trucks.

A calculator tool housed on the Cat Lift Trucks website, the Lift Truck Cost Comparison Tool factors in a lift truck’s total cost of ownership — acquisition costs, fuel costs and maintenance — with return on investment to allow customers and dealers to easily identify the most cost efficient lift truck solution for their material handling needs.

“Over the last few years, the material handling industry has made a noticeable shift from the use of internal combustion forklifts to electric lift trucks, and for many customers, we’ve found that the deciding factor is cost,” said Jeff Rufener, vice president of marketing, Cat Lift Trucks. “The Lift Truck Cost Comparison Tool is another resource to help guide customers through the decision-making process, detailing the true cost of lift truck ownership over the life of a fleet.”

Open to the public, the lift truck calculator tool is dynamic and allows for real time graph updates as information is changed. Easy to use, the addition of sliding bars enables click and drag and default values, so that customers without specifics can still take advantage of the tool.

Once data is entered and the output produced, the cost comparison tool allows for easy sharing of final results through a simple download and email function. To access the free lift truck cost calculator tool and begin a comparison, visit www.savewithelectrics.com.
