Types Of Forklifts

Forklifts can be a useful tool for moving materials from one warehouse into another. These small trucks can lift and transfer loads up to thousands of lbs. Forklifts are not only used in warehouses but can also be used commercially to move furniture around the house.

This article will briefly outline the different types of forklifts available on the market. The structure and fuel options of forklifts determine how they are classified.

  1. Electric Motor Driven Trucks

These forklifts are powered by industrial batteries and use transistors to control travel and lifting functions. You can choose to use a cushion or pneumatic tire-lift truck as an electric motor rider. Pneumatic outdoor lift trucks can be used on uneven and smooth terrain. These trucks should be used on the uneven and muddy ground. As the name implies, cushion trucks are best used on smoother ground. These cushions are intended for indoor use.

2. Electric Motor Narrow Aisle Trucks

Narrow aisle trucks are small, lightweight vehicles that can be used in tight spaces like racking shelves. The utility of these trucks is not limited to small spaces. These vehicles also have speed and efficiency. This type is popular because they take up less space and offer great utility.

3. Solid Cushion and Electric Solid Cushion Trucks

Tires made of polyurethane or solid rubber are used in solid cushion trucks. They are more resistant to punctures than pneumatic lift trucks and require less maintenance. However, their ability to absorb shocks is reduced because they are made of solid tires. Cushion trucks can be compared to electric solid cushion lift trucks. They use batteries of different voltages, which is the only difference between them and cushion trucks.
