Internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks
Diesel, gasoline, liquid propane or compressed natural gas could be utilized to fuel an internal combustion engine truck. Lift trucks that are powered by diesel or gasoline are usually large trucks meant for outdoor use. They have either pneumatic tires appropriate for driving on steep inclines and rough terrains, or cushion tires made of solid rubber suited to driving on floors indoors.
Internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks with cushion tires are categorized as Class 4 trucks by the ITA. Class 5 are trucks that have pneumatic tires.
Liquid propane is commonly utilized to fuel indoor lift trucks. These types of trucks have several benefits. They can provide consistent power during operation and are capable of achieving higher speeds. They don't have to be refueled as often as lift trucks powered by other sources. Propane cylinders can be stored anywhere because they don't take up much space. The cylinders can be easily switched out by a trained operator.
Internal combustion trucks are easily refueled and this is its benefit. The drawbacks are excessive noise and air-pollution.
