Most normally, internal combustion or IC forklifts are utilized for indoor applications like: trucking, manufacturing, bottling and warehousing, amongst other things. These models ride on cushion tires that are solid rubber tires. The IC forklift models could function either by dual fuel, diesel or LPG or Liquid Petroleum Gas. The dual fuel models work with both LPG or Liquid Petroleum Gas and gasoline. These machinery could work on either fuel but not at the same time. IC or Internal Combustion engines are Class 4 lift trucks. The engine could power all functions of the truck, the hydraulics and truck.
Nissan's forklift Platinum II models and the GO4 Series have lifting capacities from 3000 to 11,000 pounds. They come in models powered by LPG or dual-fuel or LPG/gasoline engines. The CARB certification on these specific engines gives them the confidence to help protect the environment as it allows the forklifts to generate low emissions. The environmental certifications like CARB, help many employers offer their employees cleaner and thus safer working settings.
