The Platinum II internal combustion or IC engine lift truck gives greater torque and horsepower ideal for many tough outdoor or indoor settings. This particular equipment is capable of maintaining high productivity and keeping your operation running smooth. The Platinum II can be powered by Diesel, Dual Fuel with Gas/LP, Gas or Liquid Propane. The fuel management system LP/Gas provided by Nissan optimizes engine operation in order to provide less exhaust emissions and great fuel economy.
Internal combustion or IC forklifts burn fuel in engines similar to automobile engines. These units are the most common alternative for outdoor use since electric models are not able to be used safely in the rain. Moreover, only internal combustion lift trucks are able to handle the biggest cargo. For instance, if you need more than 15,000 lbs. capacity, you will certainly need an internal combustion engine.
The internal combustion forklift could be run by liquid propane, diesel fuel, CNG which is compressed natural gas and gas. The operating costs are normally the lowest for diesel and the highest for gas models. CNG and propane fuels come in somewhere in the middle. Lots of individuals choose their equipment based on existing equipment and vehicles on hand. For instance, if you currently utilize diesel vehicles and have fuel storage, it truly makes sense to utilize diesel lift trucks too.
With their ability to refuel on the fly, the internal combustion forklift offers a huge drawback: they can easily be filled up at a gas pump or with a new propane canister and your forklift is ready to continue working in no time. These models are less expensive to purchase initially than electric lift trucks but really cost more per hour to run.
The internal combustion forklift would stand up far better to misuse over the electric forklift models. Specifically, these equipment are used to tow or push loads as opposed to lifting and driving. Generally, they have better top speeds and acceleration. Within outdoor applications, this could be a big advantage.
