Clark Propane Forklift
There are many kinds of forklifts that are operated by propane gas. Forklifts that use propane are really simple to refill. The gas is stored in a pressurized tank on the rear of the truck. The propane is pushed into the engine, where it is converted into vapor and the vapor combines with air. The throttle of the forklift is used to control the vapor flow. A spark plug ignites the mix of air and vapor producing pressure which makes the pistons move. The pistons turn the wheels and run the hydraulic pump.
Because the types of forklifts which are powered by propane are clean burning and have low emissions, they are best to be utilized in warehouses and other buildings.
What enables a forklift to raise and move heavy objects from one location to another is the hydraulic system. Cylinders, a pump and tubes make up the hydraulic system. The pump forces dense fluid through the tubing and into the cylinders. The build up of pressure pushes a piston, which lifts the forks. When the operator lowers the forks, the hydraulic fluid flows out of the cylinders and back in the pump.
Where maneuverability is needed, propane forklifts are the most suitable. Unlike a car, a forklift makes use of its rear wheels to pivot, that enables the forklift to pivot quickly on a tight radius.
