Types of Forklifts
Forklifts are utilized to lift and move heavy loads, normally inside warehouses and construction sites. They are commonly found in other manufacturing and material handling industries. There are various kinds of forklifts designed for various sorts of applications.
The main difference between forklifts is the way they are powered. Several are electric powered and some use internal combustion motors. For carrying loads which are heavy whilst maintaining low operating costs, the best choice are generally electric forklifts. Electric forklifts are most often found in indoor work environments. For outdoor applications, internal combustion forklifts are usually recommended.
Types of forklifts are fork truck, motorized drive and manual drive. Fork trucks are motorized and have cabs and backup alarms. Motorized drive forklifts typically have a protected seat for the operator. Manual drive forklifts are powered manually.
To prevent tipping over, some forklifts are counterbalanced. Other safety factors consist of turntables or handrails. Specialty forklifts are available for certain applications. For instance, narrow aisle forklifts are designed to work within very tight spaces. Rough-terrain forklifts are very effective on rocky and uneven surfaces.
