Lift Truck Basics
There is a huge variety of options and configurations available for the modern forklifts or lift trucks nowadays. These options far exceed lift height and weight capacity. Make sure you do some homework before making an acquisition for your company in order to select the best vehicles for your operation. These practices would lead to optimal utilization of your space and labor while ensuring a high safety factor.

Prior to choosing the right vehicle and making a decision for your application you must have a complete understanding of the properties of the materials or loads you would be handling. As well, it is really vital to know the storage methods you will use to be able to store these items. Furthermore, it is also essential to understand the methods you would need for shipping and receiving these things. After this is done, it is a wise idea to know the array of available vehicles and options .

Kinds of Fuel
Usually, the electric vehicles are intended for indoor application only. These models provide many advantages such as having no fumes present and being quiet to operate. If you plan to mostly use your vehicles indoors than this is definitely the most ideal choice. In multi-shift operations, you would require additional transfer and batteries and charging stations.

If the lift truck is not used 100% of the time or is in single shift operations, you would be able to charge the forklift during its off-duty hours. Take note that lift truck chargers and batteries are often priced separately from the lift truck itself.

There are alternating current or AC motors as well. These motors are offered by many lift truck manufacturers. Normally, AC powered lift trucks run off of DC batteries and convert the DC power back to AC so as to power the motor.

There are some advantages of AC motors. Several of the main factors include that these motors offer higher efficiency overall, lower maintenance costs and faster acceleration.
