Lift Truck Basics
Today, there is a huge array of options and configurations for modern forklifts, providing them with greater lift height and weight capacity. Make sure you do some homework prior to making a purchase for your company in order to choose the right vehicles for your operation. These practices will result in optimal use of your space and labor while ensuring a high safety factor.

Before selecting the right vehicle and making a decision for your operation you should have a complete understanding of the properties of the materials or loads you will be handling. Additionally, it is essential to know the storage methods you will utilize to be able to store these items. Additionally, it is also essential to know the methods you will require for shipping and receiving these items. After this is complete, it is a wise idea to know the array of options and vehicles available .

Fuel Types
The electric vehicles are designed for indoor application only, offering quiet operation with no gas fumes. If you plan to mostly use your vehicles indoors than this is definitely the most ideal option. In multi-shift operations, you will require additional transfer and batteries and charging stations.

If the lift truck is not used 100% of the time or is in single shift operations, you would be able to charge the forklift during its off-duty hours. Remember that the chargers and the batteries for lift trucks are normally priced separately from the lift truck itself.

There are AC or alternating current motors also. These motors are offered by many lift truck manufacturers. Usually, AC powered lift trucks run off of DC batteries and convert the DC power back to AC to be able to power the motor.

There are some advantages of AC motors. Several of the main factors include that these motors provide faster acceleration, higher efficiency overall and lower maintenance costs.
