Types of forklifts:
A major factor when purchasing a forklift is whether to go with internal combustion, electric or hybrid. Every technology has its advantages and disadvantages. It is really vital to distinguish one type of forklift from another and to pick the best kind for the application. The information below could help you to choose the forklift which best fits all your requirements.

The long-term cost savings is a main advantage of using electric forklifts. The initial outlay to buy additional batteries could seem expensive, but you really save a lot of money by not having to buy fuel and transport it to the work location. If you utilize some type of alternative energy source, like solar panels or windmills, you could save even more money.

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

Variations on Forklifts:
Stand-up rider forklifts - These electric-powered forklifts have counterbalance weights constructed into the body and are made so that the operator rides in the body of the truck.

Stand-up, narrow aisle rider - The kind normally utilized for areas with tight spaces. Rather than having counterweight within its body, this electric forklift is designed with straddle legs on each side to be able 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 - This kind of forklift has a boom for long reach. The forklift is made to be stable on surfaces which are uneven by having the outriggers at the front.
