Two Versions Of Forklifts

1. Electric forklifts – These operate on batteries and are best for indoor use, ware-houses and manufacturing plants. While they’re more expensive upfront, electric forklifts cost less per hour to operate. They’re also quiet and emission-free.

 

 

2. Internal combustion (IC) - IC lifts use gas, diesel fuel, or liquid propane gas. They’re used outdoors in lumber yards, construction sites, and loading docks. IC forklifts cost less to purchase but have higher hourly operating costs. IC lifts are your only choice for the highest capacities.
