Types of forklifts:
Choosing amongst internal combustion, electric or hybrid is a main factor when purchasing a forklift. Each and every technology has its disadvantages and advantages. It is really important to be able to differentiate one type of forklift from another and to choose the best type for the application. The information below can help you to pick the type of forklift that best fits your requirements.

The long-term cost savings is a key advantage of using electric forklifts. The initial expense to purchase spare batteries can seem expensive, but you save some money by not having to purchase fuel and bring it to the work location. If you use some type of alternative energy source, such as windmills or solar panels, you could save even more money.

The drawback of electric is that changing out the batteries and downtime for charging the lift has to be considered. This technology continues to improve as new methods of utilizing electric technology advances.

Variations on Forklifts:
Stand-up rider forklifts - Designed so that the driver rides inside the body of the truck, these electric-powered forklifts have counterbalance weights built into the body.

Stand-up, narrow aisle rider - Ideal for areas with tight spaces. Instead of having counterweight within its body, this electric forklift is made with straddle legs on every side to provide stability.

Sit-down rider - The counterbalance is located at the back of this sit-down rider.

Motorized hand-pallet jacks - It is a low-lift truck that has forks and is designed so that the operator could stand on the rear. Other models are made to be walked.

Reach forklift - Utilized for long reach, this type of forklift has a boom. The forklift is made to be stable on uneven surfaces by having the outriggers at the front.
