The electric vehicles are designed for indoor use only, offering quiet operation with no gas fumes. If you plan to mostly use your vehicles indoors than this is certainly the best alternative. In multi-shift operations, you will require additional transfer and charging stations and batteries.
During single shift operations, the lift truck is not utilized 100% of the time, allowing the operators adequate time to recharge the batteries while on off-duty hours. Take note that the chargers and the batteries for lift trucks are often priced separately from the lift truck itself.
Forklifts also have AC or alternating current motors. These motors are offered by lots of lift truck manufacturers. Usually, AC powered lift trucks run off of DC batteries and convert the DC power back to AC so as to power the motor.
There are some benefits of AC motors. Some of the main factors include that these motors offer faster acceleration, higher efficiency overall and lower maintenance costs.
