Yale IC Forklifts
Internal Combustion Lift Trucks
The IC forklift belongs within the class V and IV forklift classification. They can be diesel, liquid propane or gas models. Primarily, the ICE or internal combustion engine models are used outside, as they emit some emissions and can operate in rough conditions. On the other hand, propane-powered units, can be used indoors as long as proper ventilation is used. It is better to determine what specific requirements you have to utilize the forklift for and what types of environments you will be working in, in order to ensure you pick the best model to meet all of your requirements.
Internal Combustion Engine Benefits
Several of the advantages of ICE comprise a lower initial purchase price, compared to a similar capacity electric truck. This could vary anywhere from 20% to 40% less. The Internal Combustion Engine units are very easy and fast to refuel. This feature greatly reduces downtime as there is no requirement to recharge any batteries, like there is with electric models.
Normally, Internal Combustion Engine units provide higher performance capabilities compared to the similarly equipped electric truck. The heavier capacity is often available in these models compared to electric trucks. Over recent years, there have been numerous advancements regarding emissions technology and this has resulted in lesser total levels of emission. Internal combustion engine trucks remain popular with load sizes approximately 8000 lbs. and even much higher in specific operations like lumberyard settings, steel manufacturing facilities and ports.
Internal Combustion Engine Disadvantages
The IC models do suffer from some drawbacks including a higher cost-per-hour to operate as compared to electric trucks, because of the excess needs for fuel. Additionally, these units usually create more noise than the electric models because they run louder. Internal Combustion Engine trucks also have fuel-storage requirements to take into account too.
