Internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks
Internal combustion engine trucks are fueled by diesel, gasoline, liquid propane or compressed natural gas. Lift trucks that are powered by diesel or gasoline are usually big trucks designed for outdoor application. They either have pneumatic tires appropriate for driving on steep inclines and rough terrains, or cushion tires made of solid rubber suited to driving on floors indoors.
Internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks with cushion tires are classified by the ITA as Class 4 trucks. Trucks with pneumatic tires are Class 5.
Liquid propane is usually used to fuel indoor lift trucks. These kinds of trucks have several advantages. They are capable of achieving higher speeds and can provide consistent power during operation. They don't have to be refueled as frequently as lift trucks powered by other sources. Propane cylinders could be stored anywhere as they don't take up much space. The cylinders can be switched out fairly easily by a qualified operator.
Internal combustion trucks are easily refueled and this is its benefit. The drawbacks are too much noise and air-pollution.
