Daewoo Dual Fuel Forklifts
Basic Fuel Types of Forklifts
Forklifts are powered lift trucks which are utilized in a wide variety of industries to move heavy supplies and products. Forklifts are tough and dependable equipment that are essential tools in construction and warehouse settings. Lift truck models differ depending on the type of fuel which is used to power the lift truck and the type of work environment.
Electric powered lift trucks are great for indoor settings, or in sites with limited ventilation as they produce no exhaust fumes. They are designed with industrial strength batteries. Because the electric lift truck batteries need charging, the worksite would need a charging station. The batteries are durable and could be re-charged up to 1,500 times before they need to be replaced. The charging station must be situated in a ventilated area and include an emergency eyewash station and an acid spill kit.
Liquid propane powered forklifts are normally used in modern industrial operations because propane has some advantages over diesel and electric. Propane models are cleaner to utilize than diesel-powered units. There is no down time required to recharge an industrial battery, and the cost of electricity is more than the cost of propane. A lift truck propane tank could be easily and quickly refueled 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 rough terrain and outdoor applications, the gas and diesel forklifts are the machines of choice. These machinery are quite common in lumber yards and on construction sites. Their disadvantages comprise fairly high maintenance requirements, odorous exhaust and fairly high fuel costs. Their advantages include dependability in tough conditions and a longer lifespan than other units. Gasoline and diesel units must be refueled at a supply station on site that meets safety and health regulations.
