There are two basic kinds of forklifts, units which run on gas and those that run on electricity:

IC or Internal Combustion Lift trucks: The IC Forklifts run on liquid propane, gas, CNG or compressed natural gas or diesel. The gas powered units are meant to be utilized outdoors as they release pollutants and gases which could be harmful if inhaled. Units that run on gasoline are also suitable for application in bad climate and in the rain. These models can lift weights roughly 15,000 to 35,000 pounds. Because of the maintenance and fuel costs, the gas powered units are more expensive to use than the electric models, however, they cost a lot less up front than the electric units. Models that run on liquid propane are the best option for safe use in indoor applications.

Electric Lift Trucks: Electric forklifts take batteries that require regular charging. As these units do not burn any fuel, there are no emissions polluting the air with these machines. They are the right option for warehouses and indoor applications. Also, electric lift trucks are a lot quieter to run than other units and they do not require any fuel storage units. Amongst the downsides of electric powered models is that they are unable to carry loads more than 15,000 pounds and therefore, have a slower acceleration compared to gasoline powered models.

Forklifts are specially designed to easily and quickly move heavy cargo with ease. As the case with most kinds of equipments, unfortunately, forklift accidents do happen on a regular basis. There are some safety regulations which must be followed to be able to keep everyone safe. The most essential problem is recruiting a qualified operator, who would be able to show you a valid forklift license.

There are many different styles of lift trucks available on the market. Choosing which one is right for your specific needs would be based on the type of environment your machinery will have to operate in, like for example, indoors or outdoors or both and what types of loads that you have to transport. When you understand your specific needs, it would be easy to match up to the best kind of lift truck. When you know your requirements precisely you could make a correct choice.

Renting is one more great way to check out various models if you want to try out different features and see what type of choices are available. This is a less expensive way to know if the machinery you have in mind can keep up with you on the job site.
