Daewoo Dual Fuel Forklifts

Basic Fuel Types of Forklifts
Powered lift trucks referred to as forklifts are used in almost every business to move heavy products and materials. The forklift is a really tough and reliable machine that has become important tools in a lot of construction and warehouse environments. Forklift units vary depending on the type of fuel that is utilized to power the lift truck and the type of work setting.

Electricity
Electric powered lift trucks are great for indoor environments, or in places with limited ventilation because they make no exhaust fumes. They are designed with industrial strength batteries. Since the electric forklift batteries need charging, the worksite should have a charging station. The batteries are durable and could be re-charged up to 1,500 times before they have to be replaced. The charging station must be situated in a ventilated area and include an acid spill kit and an emergency eyewash station.

Propane
Forklifts powered by liquid propane have several advantages over electric and diesel powered equipment making them quite common in warehouse and industrial settings. Propane engines are much cleaner than diesel-powered units. There is no down time required to recharge an industrial battery, and the cost of electricity is more compared to the cost of propane. A forklift propane tank can be refueled easily and quickly by changing out the empty tank with a full tank. Usually an off-site supplier refills the empty tank, making refueling very safe and efficient.

Gasoline and Gas
For outdoor applications and rough terrain, the gas and diesel forklifts are the equipment of choice. These machinery are quite common in lumber yards and on construction sites. Their disadvantages comprise odorous exhaust, fairly high fuel costs and fairly high maintenance requirements. Their benefits include a longer lifespan compared to other units and dependability in tough conditions. Diesel and gasoline units will need to be refueled at a supply station on site which meets safety and health policies.
