    Moving a Load with a Forklift

    Last updated 3 days ago

    Forklifts are designed to move bulky, heavy loads from one point to another in warehouses and on construction sites. For a demonstration of how to move a load using a narrow forklift, check out this brief video clip. Using a nine-foot forklift, an experienced operator covers all of the steps required to safely and efficiently transport a stack of pallets from one part of a warehouse to another.

    Getting to Know the Hyundai Internal Combustion Cushion Forklift

    Last updated 8 days ago

    Hyundai forklifts have a reputation for performance, durability, and reliability. One of the manufacturer’s smoothest, most powerful, and best performing options is its internal combustion cushion forklift. Well-suited for a range of applications, this forklift is available in three models that boast the following qualities:

    Ease of Use and Maintenance

    To trained and certified operators, Hyundai internal combustion cushion forklifts are very user-friendly. A closed loop electronic control module, a state-of-the-art hydraulic system, and a wet disc brake system make the forklifts smooth and easy to handle. The lack of a tool floor plate and a design that is optimal for rotational battery installation make it easy to maintain as well.

    High-Performance Engine

    Equipped with powerful 2.0- or 3.0-liter General Motors engines, the forklifts in this line pack a powerful punch. In addition, the availability of models with dual-fuel and energy-efficient engines makes the internal combustion cushion forklift a sustainable choice. A state-of-the-art engine performance software program that alerts the operator to any potential engine problems promotes safety and further enhances ease of maintenance.

    Ergonomic Design

    Hyundai knows that driving a forklift takes a great deal of concentration, and that many forklift operators spend several hours on a forklift each day. To prevent fatigue, discomfort, and accidental injury, the forklifts in this line have easily adjustable, full-suspension seats designed to limit the transference of vibrations to the operator. These forklifts also feature ergonomically positioned pedals and non-slip rubber floor mats.

    Lonestar Forklift has provided Texans with forklift sales, rentals, and service since 1991. For a closer look at the Hyundai internal combustion cushion forklifts in our inventory, visit us in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, or Longview.

    Should You Rent or Buy Your Next Forklift?

    Last updated 18 days ago

    Forklifts can help warehouse managers and construction professionals greatly improve their productive capacity and efficiency. As a result, lift trucks are often seen as indispensable and invaluable investments. However, in some instances, it makes more sense for managers to rent forklifts as needed rather than invest in one of their own. When deciding whether to rent a forklift or buy one, consider the following factors. 

    Frequency and Extent of Use

    The factor that should probably weigh most heavily into your decision to buy or rent a forklift is how frequently a forklift is required at your site of operations. If you need a forklift on a daily basis and the same model works for you every time, then you will almost certainly be better off buying your own forklift. If you only need a forklift occasionally or need forklifts to handle different tasks, then renting could prove to be the more convenient and economical option for you.


    Your choice to buy or rent may be limited by your operating budget and financing options. Just because you can afford to buy a forklift does not mean that buying is better than renting, but it gives you the advantage of having a choice. To determine which decision is best for you financially, you must consider the costs of maintenance and repairs over time, as well as the costs of transporting a forklift from site to site.

    Preference for Technological Prowess

    If you buy a new forklift, it should provide you with years of reliable service. During that time, however, models that are even more efficient, powerful, and technologically advanced are likely to be released. If you have a strong preference for always using the latest technology, renting could be a better option for you than buying.

    Once you have determined whether renting or buying is right for you, pay a visit to the Lonestar Forklift dealer location nearest you. With operations in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and Longview, we are an accessible and well-established Hyundai forklift dealer that caters to businesses looking for forklift rentals as well as shoppers looking to purchase new or used forklifts.
