Lift Truck Essentials
There is a wide variety of options and configurations available for the modern lift trucks or forklifts these days. These options far exceed weight capacity and lift height. Make sure you do some homework prior to making an acquisition for your company so as to choose the right vehicles for your operation. These practices will lead to optimal utilization of your space and labor while ensuring a high safety factor.

You need to have a full understanding of the properties of the loads or materials you will be handling before choosing the optimal vehicle for your operation. Furthermore, it is very important to understand the storage methods you would use in order to store these items. In addition, it is also vital to know the methods you would need for shipping and receiving these things. After this is done, it is a wise idea to know the variety of available options and vehicles .

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

During single shift operations, the lift truck is not utilized 100% of the time, allowing the operators sufficient time to recharge the batteries while on off-duty hours. Take note that lift truck chargers and batteries are normally priced separately from the lift truck itself.

Forklifts also have AC or alternating current motors. These motors are offered by many lift truck manufacturers. Most often, AC powered lift trucks run off of DC batteries and convert the DC power back to AC in order to power the motor.

AC motors provide several benefits. Several of the main factors include that these motors provide lower maintenance costs, faster acceleration and higher efficiency overall.
