Daewoo Gas Forklifts

Dangers of Type-G forklifts
Forklifts perform an important role in the operations of warehouses and other businesses. These machines are capable of lifting and transporting immense loads from one place to another. There are numerous variations on the lift truck. The primary variation is the way in which different units are fueled. "LP" lift trucks are the kind that is most common. They utilize liquid propane. Type "E" lift trucks have large rechargeable batteries and run on electricity. Type "D" lift trucks are powered by diesel and type "G" run on gasoline. Though all forklifts, like any piece of heavy machine, could pose a danger, gasoline powered forklifts pose 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 can result driving on really rough terrain and from normal wear or from mishaps. These circumstances pose a danger and can result in fire. Hence, a typical Type G lift truck must never be utilized in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed not acceptable. For example, these kinds of forklifts should not be used around explosives or dangerous chemicals.

Explosion
Gas forklifts also pose a risk of explosion, as do diesel and liquid propane based forklifts. A gasoline powered forklift could explode as a result of a serious mishap in circumstances where an ignition source and a gasoline leak are present. An explosion could take place when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Type G lift trucks pose a serious inhalation danger because of poisonous fumes. Gasoline fumes could be deadly in high concentrations. Fumes could result from the exhaust itself or from gasoline leaks. Thus, a Type G forklift is really not suggested for any environment which is poorly ventilated. The exhaust would present a serious hazard in enclosed places. This particular kind of forklift must be utilized with caution when operated in close proximity to people.
