Kinds of forklifts:
Choosing among electric, hybrid or internal combustion is a major consideration when purchasing a forklift. Each technology has its disadvantages and advantages. It is very important to be able to differentiate one kind of forklift from another and to select the right type for the application. The information below could help you to pick the type of forklift that best fits all your requirements.

A main advantage of electric is long-term cost savings. The first expense to buy spare batteries could seem costly, but you save some money by not having to buy fuel and bring it to the work location. If you use some type of alternative energy source, like for instance solar panels or windmills, you could save even more money.

The changing out the batteries and downtime for charging the lift are amongst the downsides of using electric forklifts. This technology continues to improve as new methods of utilizing electric technology advances.

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

Stand-up, narrow aisle rider - The kind usually used for areas with tight spaces. Rather than having counterweight within its body, this electric forklift is made with straddle legs on every side to provide stability.

Sit-down rider - The counterbalance is situated at the back of this sit-down rider.

Motorized hand-pallet jacks - It is a low-lift truck that has forks and is made so that the driver could stand on the back. Other versions are designed to be walked.

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