Internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks
Diesel, gasoline, liquid propane or compressed natural gas could be used to power an internal combustion engine truck. Lift trucks that are powered by diesel or gasoline are normally big trucks meant for outdoor use. They either have cushion tires made of solid rubber suited to driving on floors indoors or pneumatic tires suitable for driving on steep inclines and rough terrain.
The ITA categorizes internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks with cushion tires as Class 4 trucks. Class 5 are trucks that have pneumatic tires.
Liquid propane is commonly used to fuel indoor lift trucks. These types of trucks have several advantages. They are able to provide consistent power during operation and are capable of achieving higher speeds. They don't have to be refueled as frequently as lift trucks powered by other sources. Propane cylinders don't take up much space and can be stored anywhere. The cylinders could be switched out fairly easily by a qualified operator.
Internal combustion trucks are easy to refuel and this is its benefit. The disadvantages are air-pollution and too much noise.
