Internal combustion forklift refers to a forklift that uses diesel, gasoline or liquefied petroleum gas as fuel and is powered by an engine. The deadweight is 0.5 to 45 tons. Generally divided into: counterbalanced diesel forklift, counterbalanced gasoline forklift, counterbalanced LPG forklift.
1. The counterbalanced diesel forklift has a large volume, but its stability is good, and it is suitable for heavy load. The use time is unlimited and the use site is generally outdoors. Compared with gasoline engines, diesel engines have better power performance (low speed is not easy to stall, overload capacity, long-term operation ability), low fuel costs, but large vibration, noise, large displacement, weight, and high price.
2. The counterbalanced gasoline forklift has a large volume, but its stability is good, and it is suitable for heavy loads. The use time is unlimited, and the place of use is generally outdoors. Gasoline engine has small appearance, light weight, high output power, low working noise and vibration, and low price. However, gasoline engines have poor overload capacity and long-term operation capability, and fuel costs are quite high.
3. Counterbalanced Liquefied Petroleum Gas Forklift (LPG) is a counterbalanced gasoline forklift equipped with a LPG conversion device to become an LPG forklift, which can switch between gasoline and liquefied gas through a switch. The biggest advantage of LPG forklifts is good exhaust emissions, carbon monoxide (CO) emissions are significantly less than gasoline engines, low fuel costs (15KG of liquefied gas is equivalent to 20 liters of gasoline), which is suitable for indoor operations with high environmental requirements.
