Daewoo Gas Forklifts

Daewoo Gas Forklifts

Dangers of Type-G lift trucks
The lift truck is essential for completing warehouse tasks. These extremely capable machinery lift and move loads of huge size from one location to another. Forklifts have numerous variations. The primary variation is the way in which various types of forklifts are fueled. "LP" lift trucks are the kind which is most popular. They operate on liquid propane. Type "E" forklifts have big rechargeable batteries and operate on electricity. Type "D" lift trucks use diesel and type "G" operate on gasoline. Though all forklifts, similar to any piece of heavy machinery, can pose a danger, the type of forklifts that are powered by gasoline carry the most risks.

Fire
Forklifts labelled type G could present a fire hazard. Gas lift trucks are not made with the same rigorous standards. Gas leaks are the biggest cause of fire due mostly to gas leaks and also escaped gas fumes. This could result from normal wear and from accidents or driving on extremely rough terrain. These circumstances pose a risk and can result in fire. Therefore, a typical Type G forklift should never be used in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed not acceptable. For example, these types of forklifts should not be used around dangerous or explosive chemicals.

Explosion
Type G forklifts also pose a risk of explosion, as do those that operate on liquid propane and diesel. A type of forklift which operate on gasoline could explode as a result of a serious mishap in circumstances where an ignition source and a gasoline leak are present. An explosion can take place when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Because of bad fumes, the gas lift truck does pose a risk for inhalation, that could be deadly in higher concentrations. Fumes could result from gasoline leaks or from the exhaust itself. Hence, a Type G forklift is not recommended for any environment which is poorly ventilated. The exhaust would present a serious danger in enclosed places. This particular type of forklift should be used carefully when operated in close proximity to individuals.
