Internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks
Liquid propane, compressed natural gas, diesel or gasoline can be utilized to power an internal combustion engine truck. Lift trucks that are powered by diesel or gasoline are normally big trucks utilized outdoors. They either have cushion tires made of solid rubber suited to driving on floors indoors or pneumatic tires appropriate 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 which have pneumatic tires.
Liquid propane is usually used to power indoor lift trucks. These types of trucks have several benefits. They are capable of achieving higher speeds and are able to provide consistent power during operation. They don't need to be refueled as often as lift trucks powered by other sources. Propane cylinders could be kept anywhere since they don't take up much space. 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 excessive noise and air-pollution.
