|Fork Lift Trucks with
Fork Lift Trucks are powered either by battery powered electrical motors or by IC-Engines. IC-Engines have the advantage that they can be operated continuously for a long period of time and are relatively unaffected by rough floors, dust, water and high air temperatures. Therefore they are ideal for any outdoor operation - or in well ventilated facilities.Replacing fuel for the IC-Engine tank is simpler than the recharging for the batteries. Safety and Health Regulation must be observed however to control the exhaust gases of the IC-Engines.
Diesel or LP-Gas engines are preferred since Gasoline Engines exhaust high levels of carbonmonoxide and should not be used in any indoor operation at all.
These engines are preferred because of their power output, their low emission, their long life and low maintenance requirements.
They are powered by LP-Gas, a mixture of liquid Propane and Butan. They are recognized for their low emissions and low operating noises. It has to be considered, however, that LP-Gas mixed with air becomes a combustible, explosive mixture. LP-Gas engines are not allowed to operate in closed rooms without ventilation and also not inside refrigerated rooms or in freezers.
