Kinds of forklifts:
A major factor when purchasing a forklift is whether to opt for hybrid, internal combustion or electric. Each and every technology has its disadvantages and advantages. It is vital to be able to distinguish one type of forklift from another and to choose the best kind for the application. The information below can help you to pick the forklift which best fits your needs.

A major benefit of electric is long-term cost savings. The initial expense to purchase additional batteries can seem costly, but you save a lot of money by not having to buy fuel and transport it to the work location. If you use some type of alternative source of energy, like windmills or solar panels, you could save even more money.

The downside of electric is that changing out the batteries and downtime for charging the lift has to be considered. This technology continues to get better as new methods of using electric technology advances.

Variations on Forklifts:
Stand-up rider forklifts - These electric-powered forklifts have counterbalance weights constructed into the body and are designed so that the driver rides within the body of the truck.

Stand-up, narrow aisle rider - The type usually utilized for areas with tight spaces. Instead of having counterweight inside its body, this electric forklift is designed with straddle legs on every side to provide stability.

Sit-down rider - At the rear of the sit-down-rider, you can find the counterbalance.

Motorized hand-pallet jacks - This low-lift truck has forks and is made for the driver to stand on the back. Other versions are designed to be walked.

Reach forklift - This type of forklift has a boom for long reach. The forklift is made to be stable on surfaces which are uneven by having the outriggers at the front.
