Electric forklift recommendation

Looking for recommendations on a forklift for my small warehouse. Its only 7500sqft. If the thing got used 5 hours a week, I'd be surprised. It will be very low use. I only need 3000lb lift. What I really need is affordable.

Can you guys suggest a good brand that is affordable? Im ok with Chinese.

Thanks

Stay away from the Chinese lifts ,you just cannot get parts. If you are going to use to load trucks and have the space Yale/hyster/ clark/ Toyota sit down LP units are a good bet. the domestic units are good value and the dealer net work can get you what you want new or used. Keep in mind when your unit goes down your warehouse goes down. Go with the established dealers in your area. buying from a reseller you get a remanufactured (yea right) unit with a fresh paint job and little else. Just try to get warranty from a used lift truck dealer. A brand dealership can also recommend what you really need.
