Yale IC Forklifts
Internal Combustion Lift Trucks
IC lift trucks are members of classes IV and V. Normally, they are offered in diesel, liquid propane or gas units. Mostly, the ICE or also known as internal combustion engine units are used outside, because they produce some emissions and are able to function in inclement weather. Propane-powered models, on the other hand, could be used indoors provided that proper ventilation is utilized.

The Internal Combustion Engine models are easy and fast to refuel. This feature greatly lessens downtime since there is no requirement to recharge any batteries, like there is with electric models.

This is mostly because of maintenance costs and fuel. Also, these units usually create more noise than the electric units because they run louder.
