IC Lift Trucks
IC lift trucks are members of classes V and IV. Usually, they are available in diesel, liquid propane or gas units. Primarily, the ICE or also referred to as internal combustion engine models are utilized outside, because they could function in severe climate and produce some emissions. However, propane-powered units, can be used indoors provided that proper ventilation is utilized. It is better to know what particular requirements you have to utilize the forklift for and what kinds of environments you would be operating in, in order to ensure you pick the right unit to meet your needs.

ICE Benefits
Some of the advantages of ICE comprise a lower initial purchase price, compared to a similar capacity electric truck. This could vary anywhere from 20% to 40% less. The ICE models are easy and fast to refuel. This feature greatly lessens downtime because there is no need to recharge any batteries, like there is with electric models.

Usually, ICE models offer higher performance capabilities compared to the similarly equipped electric truck. The heavier capacity is usually available in these units compared to electric trucks. Over recent years, there have been many advancements regarding emissions technology and this has resulted in lesser total emission levels. ICE trucks remain popular with load sizes around 8000 lbs. and even much higher in certain operations like steel manufacturing facilities, ports and lumberyard settings.

Internal Combustion Engine Drawbacks
There are several disadvantages to the ICE units. For instance, they utilize a higher cost-per-hour to operate as compared to electric trucks. This is mainly because of maintenance costs and fuel. In addition, these models normally produce more noise compared to the electric units as they run louder. ICE trucks also have fuel-storage requirements to consider too.
