Daewoo Gas Forklifts

Hazards of Type-G lift trucks
Forklifts carry out an essential part in the operations of warehouses and other businesses. These equipment are capable of lifting and transporting immense loads from one place to another. There are many variations on the forklift. The main variation is the way in which various units are fueled. "LP" lift trucks are the most popular type. They utilize liquid propane. Type "E" forklifts have large rechargeable batteries and run on electricity. Type "D" lift trucks are powered by diesel and type "G" operate on gasoline. While all types of forklifts, similar to any piece of heavy machine, can pose a hazard, gasoline powered forklifts carry the most risks.

Type G forklifts can present a fire hazard. Gasoline-powered forklifts are not held to rigorous standards in reducing lessening fire hazards. The biggest cause of fire is because of gasoline leaks which allow gasoline fumes to escape. This could result from mishaps and from driving on extremely rough terrain or normal wear. These circumstances pose a danger and can cause fire. Thus, a typical Type G forklift should never be used in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed not acceptable. For example, these types of forklifts must not be used around hazardous or explosive chemicals.

Gas forklifts also pose a danger of explosion, as do liquid propane and diesel based forklifts. A type of forklift that run on gasoline can explode as a result of a serious mishap in circumstances where an ignition source and a gasoline leak are both present. An explosion could take place when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Due to toxic fumes, the gas lift truck does pose a risk for inhalation, that can be deadly in higher concentrations. Fumes could result from the exhaust itself or from gasoline leaks. Therefore, a Type G forklift is not suggested for any setting that is poorly ventilated. The exhaust will present a serious hazard in enclosed spaces. This type of forklift should be used with care when operated near people.
