Lift Truck Basics
There is a huge variety of options and configurations available for the modern forklifts or lift trucks nowadays. These options far exceed lift height and weight capacity. Be sure you do some homework before making an acquisition for your company to be able to select the right vehicles for your application. These practices will lead to optimal utilization of your space and labor while ensuring a high safety factor.

Prior to selecting the right vehicle and making a decision for your application you must have a full understanding of the properties of the loads or materials you will be handling. Also, it is very important to understand the storage methods you would use to be able to store these things. Moreover, it is also important to understand the methods you will need for shipping and receiving these items. After this is complete, it is a wise idea to know the array of available options and vehicles .

Fuel Types
Usually, the electric vehicles are designed for indoor use only. These models offer many advantages like being quiet to operate and having no fumes present. If you plan to mainly utilize your vehicles indoors than this is certainly the best alternative. In multi-shift operations, you will need additional transfer and batteries and charging stations.

If the lift truck is not utilized 100% of the time or is in single shift operations, you would be able to charge the forklift during its off-duty hours. Remember that the batteries and the chargers for lift trucks are usually priced separately from the lift truck itself.

Forklifts also have AC or alternating current motors. These motors are offered by numerous lift truck manufacturers. Usually, AC powered lift trucks run off of DC batteries and convert the DC power back to AC so as to power the motor.

AC motors offer some advantages. Some of the main factors include that these motors offer faster acceleration, higher efficiency overall and lower maintenance costs.
