Internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks
Internal combustion engine trucks are powered by compressed natural gas, diesel, gasoline or liquid propane. Lift trucks that are powered by diesel or gasoline are normally big trucks meant for outdoor use. They have either cushion tires made of solid rubber suited to driving on floors indoors or pneumatic tires suitable for driving on rough terrain and steep inclines.
The ITA categorizes internal combustion counterbalanced lift trucks with cushion tires as Class 4 trucks. Class 5 are trucks which have pneumatic tires.
Normally used to power indoor lift trucks is liquid propane. These types of trucks have several benefits. They are capable of achieving higher speeds and could provide consistent power during operation. They don't have to be refueled as frequently as lift trucks powered by other sources. Propane cylinders can be kept anywhere since they don't take up much space. The cylinders could be easily switched out by a trained operator.
The benefit of internal combustion trucks is that they are easily refueled. The drawbacks are air-pollution and excessive noise.
