There are actually 2 types of lift trucks, predicated whether or not they run on electricity or gas:

Internal Combustion Forklifts: The Internal Combustion lift truck will run on fuels like liquid propane, gas, diesel or compressed natural gas or CNG. Gas powered units are best suited for outdoor use because they release gases and pollutants which are harmful to workers and pedestrians. Gas units are also great to be utilized in bad climate and in the rain. These units could lift weights about 15,000 to 35,000 pounds. Because of the fuel expenses and maintenance, the gas powered units are more expensive to utilize than units which run on electricity, although, they cost a lot less up front than the electric models. Models which run on liquid propane are the best choice to be used inside.

Electric Lift Trucks: Electric lift trucks take batteries which require frequent charging. Since these units do not burn any fuel, there are no emissions polluting the air with these vehicles. They are the best alternative for warehouses and indoor applications. As well, forklifts that run on electricity are a lot quieter to run compared to other units and they do not need any fuel storage units. One of the disadvantages of electric powered models is that they are unable to lift loads over 15,000 pounds and thus, have a slower acceleration compared to the units that utilize gasoline.

Forklifts are specially made to quickly and easily move heavy loads with simplicity. As the case with nearly all types of machines, unfortunately, lift truck accidents do happen on a regular basis. There are specific safety regulations which should be followed in order to keep everyone safe. The most essential concern is recruiting a qualified operator, who would be able to show you a valid forklift license.

There are numerous different types of forklifts offered on the market. Choosing which one is right for your particular requirements would be based on the types of loads which you have to transport, what kind of environment your equipment will have to operate in, like for instance, outdoors or indoors or both. Once you know your specific needs, it will be very easy to match up to the right type of lift truck. When you know your requirements exactly you can make the best choice.

Leasing is another good way to try out different units if you want to try out various features and see what type of choices are available. This is a cheaper way to know if the equipment you have chosen could keep up with you on the job location.
