The IC or internal combustion lift trucks are utilized most frequently for indoor operations such as trucking, manufacturing, warehousing and bottling. Normally, these units utilize solid rubber tires called cushion tires. The IC forklift models could operate either by Liquid Petroleum Gas or LPG, dual fuel or diesel. The dual fuel units operate with both LPG and gasoline. These machines are able to run on either fuel but not simultaneously. IC or Internal Combustion engines are Class 4 forklifts. The engine can power all functions of the truck, the hydraulics and truck.
The GO4 Series and the Nissan Forklift Platinum II units have capacities ranging from 3000 to 11,000 pounds. These units offer CARB certified dual-fuel or LPG/gasoline or LPG engines. The CARB certification on these specific engines gives them the confidence to help protect nature since it allows the forklifts to produce low emissions. The environmental certifications such as CARB, help many employers offer their employees cleaner and thus safer working environments.
The fuel management systems provided by Nissan, the LP/Gas combinations, offer optimum engine operation to decrease exhaust emissions and offer incredible fuel economy at the same time. Each Platinum II fork truck is standard outfitted with their compressive engine protection system in place to warn operators in case of excessive heat or a severe drop in oil pressure. This specific system helps to extend your engine and drive train life to help keep your lift truck investment working at its optimum ability.
The dual fuel models are making a splash within the business because many companies are trying to be as "green" as possible and as environmentally friendly and efficient as they can. It's also a great idea to lease the equipment for a bit to see if you like the way it handles prior to purchasing one. There are numerous options in the industry today and with a little research, you could select the best model for your certain operation.
