What's an average amount of forklift use?

Forklift “age” is measured in hours. For a single-shift operation with an 8-hour work day, the average forklift runs 2,000 hours/ year.

The average lifespan of a forklift is 10,000 hours, but this depends on the manufacturer. Above-average machines, such as TASK, SUMI, Toyota and even Crown forklifts, commonly last more than 20,000 hours.
