Daewoo Gas Forklifts

Hazards of Type-G forklifts
Forklifts carry out an important part in the operations of warehouses and other businesses. These equipment are capable of lifting and moving immense loads from one location to another. There are several variations on the lift truck. The main variation is the way in which various types of forklifts are fueled. "LP" forklifts are the most popular kind. They use liquid propane. Type "E" lift trucks have large rechargeable batteries and operate on electricity. Type "D" lift trucks are powered by diesel and type "G" operate on gasoline. While all lift trucks, similar to any piece of heavy equipment, can pose a hazard, gasoline powered forklifts carry the most risks.

Fire
Type G forklifts can present a fire hazard. Gasoline-fueled lift trucks are not held to rigorous standards in reducing lessening fire hazards. The biggest cause of fire is because of gasoline leaks that enable gasoline fumes to escape. This can result from normal wear and from mishaps or driving on extremely rough terrain. These circumstances pose a danger and can result in fire. Hence, a typical Type G forklift must never be used in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed unacceptable. Like for example, these units must not be used around explosives or dangerous chemicals.

Explosion
Type G lift trucks also pose a danger of explosion, as do those which operate on liquid propane and diesel. A type of lift truck that run on gasoline could explode as a result of a serious accident in circumstances where a gasoline leak and an ignition source are present. An explosion could occur when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Because of bad fumes, the gas forklift does pose a risk for inhalation, which can be deadly in higher concentrations. Fumes could result from the exhaust itself or from gasoline leaks. Thus, a Type G lift truck is really not suggested for any environment which is poorly ventilated. The exhaust will present a serious hazard in enclosed spaces. This kind of forklift should be used with caution when operated in close proximity to individuals.
