Daewoo Dual Fuel Forklifts

Daewoo Dual Fuel Forklifts

Basic Fuel Types of Forklifts
Powered lift trucks referred to as forklifts are used in almost every industry to move heavy items and materials. The forklift is a very tough and dependable machine which has become important tools in many construction and warehouse environments. Lift truck units differ depending on the kind of fuel which is utilized to power the lift truck and the type of work environment.

Electricity
Electric forklifts are great for work sites which have limited ventilation since they produce no exhaust fumes and are fairly quiet. They are designed to be powered by industrial-strength, large batteries. As the electric forklift batteries need charging, the worksite must have a charging station. The batteries are tough and can be re-charged up to 1,500 times before they have to be replaced. The charging station should be located in a ventilated area and include an emergency eyewash station and an acid spill kit.

Propane
Forklifts powered by liquid propane have some benefits over electric and diesel powered machines making them quite common in industrial and warehouse environments. Propane engines are a lot cleaner compared to diesel-powered units. There is no down time required to recharge an industrial battery, and the cost for propane is less compared to the cost of electricity. A lift truck propane tank can be refueled quickly and easily by changing out the empty tank with a full tank. Typically an off-site supplier refills the empty tank, making refueling very safe and efficient.

Gasoline and Gas
For rough terrain and outdoor applications, the gas and diesel forklifts are the machines of choice. These machinery are quite common in lumber yards and on construction sites. Their disadvantages include odorous exhaust, relatively high fuel costs and relatively high maintenance needs. Their advantages comprise a longer lifespan compared to other units and reliability in tough conditions. Gasoline and diesel units should be refueled at a supply station on site which meets health and safety regulations.
