Daewoo Dual Fuel Forklifts
Basic Fuel Types of Forklifts
Forklifts are powered lift trucks which are used in various kinds of industries to move heavy materials and products. Forklifts are durable and dependable equipment which are necessary tools in warehouse and construction environments. Lift truck models differ depending on the kind of fuel that is utilized to power the lift truck and the kind of work environment.
Electric forklifts are recommended for work sites that have limited ventilation because they make no exhaust fumes and are relatively quiet. They are designed to be powered by large, industrial-strength batteries. Since the electric lift truck batteries should be charging, the worksite will need 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 must be situated in a ventilated area and include an acid spill kit and an emergency eyewash station.
Forklifts powered by liquid propane have several advantages over diesel and electric powered machines making them fairly common in warehouse and industrial settings. Propane engines are much cleaner compared to diesel-powered units. There is no down time needed to recharge an industrial battery, and the cost for propane is less than 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. Usually an off-site supplier refills the empty tank, making refueling very efficient and safe.
Gasoline and Gas
For rough terrain and outdoor applications, the gas and diesel forklifts are the equipment of choice. These equipment are quite common in lumber yards and on construction sites. Their disadvantages include odorous exhaust, relatively high fuel costs and fairly high maintenance needs. Their benefits include a longer lifespan than other units and reliability in tough conditions. Diesel and gasoline units must be refueled at a supply station on site which meets safety and health regulations.
