Kinds of forklifts:
Choosing amongst hybrid, internal combustion or electric is a major factor when buying a forklift. Every technology has its advantages and disadvantages. It is really vital to distinguish one type of forklift from another and to pick the right kind for the application. The information below could help you to choose the type of forklift that best fits your requirements.

A major advantage of electric is long-term cost savings. The first expense to purchase spare batteries might seem pricey, but you actually save a lot of money by not having to purchase fuel and transport it to the work location. If you use some type of alternative energy source, such as solar panels or windmills, you could save even more money.

The drawback of electric is that downtime for charging the lift and changing out the batteries has to be considered. This technology continues to get better as new ways of using electric technology advances.

Variations on Forklifts:
Stand-up rider forklifts - Designed so that the driver rides inside the body of the truck, these electric-powered forklifts have counterbalance weights constructed into the body.

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

Sit-down rider - At the back of the sit-down-rider, you could find the counterbalance.

Motorized hand-pallet jacks - This low-lift truck has forks and is made for the driver to 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 surfaces that are uneven by having the outriggers at the front.
