Kinds of forklifts:
Choosing among electric, hybrid or internal combustion is a main factor when buying a forklift. Every technology has its advantages and disadvantages. It is very vital to distinguish one kind of forklift from another and to pick the best kind for the application. The information below could help you to select the forklift that best fits your needs.

A major advantage of electric is long-term cost savings. The initial outlay to purchase additional batteries can seem expensive, but you save some money by not having to purchase fuel and transport it to the work location. If you utilize some kind of alternative source of energy, such as solar panels or windmills, you can save even more money.

The changing out the batteries and downtime for charging the lift are amongst the disadvantages of using electric forklifts. This technology continues to get better as new ways of utilizing electric technology advances.

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

Stand-up, narrow aisle rider - The kind normally utilized for areas with tight spaces. Instead of having counterweight within its body, this electric forklift is made with straddle legs on each side in order to provide stability.

Sit-down rider - At the rear of the sit-down-rider, you can find the counterbalance.

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

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