Komatsu Dual Fuel Forklifts

Dual Fuel Engine
Dual Fuel or DF Engines are the type of engines that can work on a mixture of gas fuel or diesel fuel or it can run on diesel fuel alone. Duel Fuel engines can not operate on gas alone because they do not have an ignition system, nor do they possess any spark plugs.

As diesel is not a pure gas, and it is not a pure diesel designed engine, it has some disadvantages in the department of Methane slippage as well as fuel efficiency.. For instance, the fuel efficiency may be 5% to 8% less than in a comparable spark-ignited, lean burn engine at 100% load. It could even be greater on lower loads.

Lift Truck Fuel Sources and Classifications
There are certain recycling materials handling applications which can prove very difficult for lift trucks. For example, scrap metal is one of these issues. In order to successfully handle things like this needs using the correct kind of equipment for the job.
