Daewoo Dual Fuel Forklifts

Daewoo Dual Fuel Forklifts

Basic Fuel Types of Forklifts
Powered lift trucks called forklifts are used in almost every industry to move heavy items and materials. The forklift is a really tough and dependable machinery which has become important tools in lots of construction and warehouse environments. Forklift units vary depending on the kind of work setting and the kind of fuel which is used to power the lift truck.

Electricity
Electric forklifts are recommended for work sites which have limited ventilation because they produce no exhaust fumes and are relatively quiet. They are designed to be powered by large, industrial-strength batteries. Because the electric forklift batteries need charging, the worksite will need a charging station. The batteries are tough and could be re-charged up to 1,500 times before they have to be replaced. The charging station should be located in a ventilated area and include an emergency eyewash station and an acid spill kit.

Propane
Liquid propane powered forklifts are normally utilized in modern industrial operations because propane has some benefits over electric and diesel. Propane models are cleaner to operate compared to diesel-powered units. There is no down time needed to recharge an industrial battery, and the cost for propane is less than the cost of electricity. A forklift propane tank can be quickly and easily refueled by changing out the empty tank with a full tank. Normally an off-site supplier refills the empty tank, making refueling really efficient and safe.

Diesel and Gasoline
Diesel and gasoline lift trucks are the machine of choice for rough terrain and outdoor applications. They are commonly found on construction sites and lumber yards. Their disadvantages include fairly high maintenance requirements, odorous exhaust and fairly high fuel costs. Their benefits include dependability in tough conditions and a longer lifespan than other units. Gasoline and diesel units should be refueled at a supply station on site which meets safety and health policies.
