Kinds of forklifts:
Choosing among hybrid, internal combustion or electric is a major factor when buying a forklift. Each technology has its advantages and disadvantages. It is very vital to be able to distinguish one type of forklift from another and to pick the best type for the application. The information below could help you to select the forklift which best fits all your needs.

The long-term cost savings is a key benefit of utilizing electric forklifts. The initial outlay to purchase additional batteries could seem pricey, but you actually save some money by not having to purchase fuel and transport it to the work location. If you use some kind of alternative source of energy, such as solar panels or windmills, you can save even more money.

The downtime for charging the lift and changing out the batteries are among the downsides of utilizing electric forklifts. This technology continues to get better as new methods of utilizing electric technology advances.

Variations on Forklifts:
Stand-up rider forklifts - These electric-powered forklifts have counterbalance weights constructed into the body and are designed so that the operator rides within the body of the truck.

Stand-up, narrow aisle rider - Best for areas with tight spaces. Rather than having counterweight within its body, this electric forklift is designed with straddle legs on each and every side to be able to provide stability.

Sit-down rider - At the rear of the sit-down-rider, you can find the counterbalance.

Motorized hand-pallet jacks - It is a low-lift truck which has forks and is made so that the operator can stand on the rear. Other versions are made to be walked.

Reach forklift - Utilized for long reach, this kind of forklift has a boom. The forklift is made to be stable on uneven surfaces by having the outriggers at the front.
