Leasing a Forklift? Tips & Advice on Forklift Leasing & Financing—July 2011

July 8, 2011 at 1:03 PMRing Power
financing and leasing forklift tips

Is your company preparing to sign a lease for a forklift? Here's some tips from Ring Power Lift Trucks when leasing or financing a new or used forklift.forklift leasing and financing

Know your leasing company. Only deal with reputable finance companies that you are familiar with.  Many brokers call themselves ‘leasing companies’, when in fact they are not the funding source.  They act as ‘middle men’ and place the lease paper with various financial institutions. It is always better to deal directly with a leasing company that is a direct source of funds. Not only are you going to get a better lease payment, but it will be easier to determine if this is a finance company you are comfortable working with.

UCC ‘blanket’ liens. Some forklift finance companies will file a blanket lien covering all assets on a business. Lessees should review the documents to ensure that the UCC filing is only on the specific forklift and material handling equipment that they are leasing or financing.
 
Attention to Details. Make sure the ‘Return Provisions’ are in line with your application, your environment, and/or your usage. You may otherwise be charged for excessive hours or repairs given the actual run time and environment that the forklift was exposed.

Understanding Fees. Understand what fees may be charged by a leasing company. Some companies charge as much as $500 to write and book a forklift lease transaction.
 
Read Your Lease Contract. Know what the terms and conditions of the lease are.  Eliminate surprises at maturity of the forklift lease.

Follow this simple guidelines and you should find yourself much more confident when negotiating your next forklift leasing deal. Call or email any of Florida's Ring Power Lift Trucks locations for additional assistance or que
stions.

Ring Power Lift Trucks leases and finances a wide variety forklifts, from pneumatic tire IC forklifts to efficient electric cushion and pneumatic tire forklifts, from container hanlders by Kalmar and Linde to narrow aisle warehouse forklifts by Jungheinrich, Mitsubishi Forklifts and Cat Lift Trucks.

Quality Forklifts. Even Better People.

Manitowoc Crawler Crane available at Ring Power Crane

 

Since it was first introduced in 2000, Ring Power refuses to keep Manitowoc’s 999 cranes off our shelves. Why? Because not only does it continue to meet the expectations of our Ring Power Crane custommanitowoc crawler craneers but this lattice boom crawler crane goes above and beyond, literally. With 48" wide cast steel pads, Manitowoc’s very own patented FACT connection to carbody and single-track design, this beast of burden does more than just get the job done. 

Towering over its competition, this crane is strategically designed with drive motors located on each corner of the carbody, rather than the same side, to help with turning while carrying a load. This also allows for better ease of assembly, as it won’t matter what crawler goes on what side. Don’t miss out on Manitowoc’s exclusive independent closed loop system not to mention its main and whip drum’s continuous 29,500 lb. line pull with top to bottom layer. Tired of your crane engine refusing to crank up in the winter months? Well, the 999 offers a manually operated disconnect clutch for cold weather starting. All of this and more: Its crawlers’ tractive effort allows full counter-rotation with a full-rated load, exclusive to Manitowoc.

So don’t settle for a crane that limits your operation, let the Manitowoc 999 Crawler Crane earn you precious time and money as it continues to speak for itself. Now you know why our Ring Power customers can’t keep their hands off this crane for over a decade. Don’t let this load-lifting competitive edge slip through your hands. Come see for yourself why we proudly stand by the 999 lattice boom crawler crane.

This Manitowoc 999 lattice boom crawler crane is available for long term rent. Contact us for crane rental rates.

Crane Techs Take the Field at New Marlins Stadium in Miami–April 2011

April 21, 2011 at 3:18 PMRing Power

The Major League Baseball Florida Marlins’ opening game held April 1 marks the beginning of their final season at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. And just outside Little Havana in downtown Miami, approximately 800 construction workers are busy manitowoc crane miamiconstructing Miami Ballpark, the Marlin’s new home. Recently, two of Ring Power Crane’s service technicians had a rare opportunity to join the construction crews at the renowned jobsite.

Steel erection specialists L.P.R. Construction Co., whose project history includes Coors Field, Memphis Arena and Miami Heat Stadium, was contracted to work the steel. The Loveland, Colo.-based company was using a Manitowoc 18000 to install the retractable roof on the new baseball stadium when the crane’s radio-controlled load cell unit malfunctioned, and L.P.R. called Ring Power Crane in Pompano to assist.

Ring Power Crane technician, Raul Urena, reported to the stadium jobsite to troubleshoot the problem and took the load cell back to the facility for inspection and repair. At the time, the crane was also due for routine 1000-hour service, so Crane FS Tech II Mauricio Brizuela returned to the site with Urena two days later. The crane technicians spent the next two days installing the load cell, changing the oils and filters, and inspecting the engine, drives, hydraulics and hoist assemblies.

Miami Ballpark will be the sixth Major League Baseball stadium to have a retractable roof, and the Ring Power Crane service technicians are proud to have played an important part in its construction.

Ring Power Crane is a full-service crane dealer offering new and used cranes for purchase, lease or rent from America’s leading crane manufacturers—Grove Cranes, National Crane boom trucks, Manitowoc crawler cranes, Broderson, Manitex, Tadano, and now Badger and Little Giant—to contractors and crane businesses throughout the Southeastern U.S. Exporting cranes is handled through our International Sales Team in miami ballpakrk marlins stadiumMiami and serves customers in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Track-type Tractor Rebuild Saves Brevard County Money–April 2011

April 20, 2011 at 1:03 PMRing Power
Brevard County saved many with a major rebuild of their landfill machines.

Daily operating conditions at Brevard County Landfill are extremely harsh. Sharp fragments, corrosive materials and sticky debris work their way into a machine’s components, accelerating wear and tear. Brevard County’s Solid Waste Division recetrack-type tractor after reuildntly rebuilt two of their worn fleet machines, a Caterpillar® D7R track-type tractor and a Caterpillar M316 wheeled excavator, at a fraction of the cost of buying new.

Justin William’s, Palm Bay Heavy Equipment PSSR, persistence convinced Brevard County officials that a Ring Power rebuild would help get their money’s worth out of their Cat machines, and his timing couldn’t have been better. Accustomed to replacing equipment every five years, Brevard County had not considered a rebuild since 1999, when the landfill’s 826C landfill compactor was rebuilt. Once officials started comparing current equipment pricing with Ring Power’s rebuild options, County officials saw the advantage: the powertrain rebuilds would save more than $415,000 when compared to the cost of replacing the two machines.

The D7R was transported to Tampa’s Major Component Rebuild Center (MCRC) in early December 2010. Component specialists rebuilt the powertrain—engine, transmission, final drives, drive axles, differentials, hydraulic cylinders, pumps and motors—inspecting, testing and replacing as needed. Several weeks later, the M316 was brought in to Palm Bay’s service shop. Both rebuilds were completed within the scheduled 30 days, but the M316 was not delivered to Brevard County until March, after some additional work was completed.

Brevard County solid waste officials are very pleased with the “good as new” quality of the rebuilds—right down to the paint jobs! Congratulations to Ring Power’s Heavy Equipment service and product support personnel in Palm Bay and Tampa who made the rebuilds happen!

When it comes to overall productivity and operating cost, a Cat® machine is the best equipment investment you can make. When most competitive models reach the end of their life cycle, replacement may be the only solution. But Cat equipment has a sustainable design that allows the machine to be remanufactured by reusing many of the original parts, reducing waste and delivering a cost-effective alternative to replacing with new equipment.
