Forklift FAQ

Question: What type of forklift motor is the best- internal combustion(gas, lp, diesel) or electric?

Answer: It depends on your application. Each power source has its advantages and disadvantages. Internal combustion engines have more variable power, generate more torque, and are much more mobile in that refueling can be done anywhere. They do, however, require more maintenance and emit noticeable emissions. Electric forklifts are fume free, have less moving parts, which means less overall maintenance, quiet and clean, and easy to use. Their drawback is an eight hour recharge time when it runs out of power and the forklift needs to be returned to a charger every time.  How and where you use a forklift will be a big determinate in what will be best for you.
