Choosing among electric, hybrid or internal combustion is a main consideration when buying a forklift. Each technology has its disadvantages and advantages. It is really important to distinguish one kind of forklift from another and to select the right one for the application. The following info can help you to select the forklift which best fits your requirements.

The long-term cost savings is a major advantage of using electric forklifts. The initial outlay to buy additional batteries could seem costly, but you really save a lot of money by not having to purchase fuel and transport it to the work location. If you utilize some type of alternative energy source, like for example solar panels or windmills, you could save even more money.

Sit-down rider - The counterbalance is located at the rear of this sit-down rider.

Motorized hand-pallet jacks - This low-lift truck has forks and is designed for the operator to stand on the back. Other versions are made to be walked.

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