Internal Combustion Lift Trucks
The IC forklift belongs within the class V and IV forklift classification. They can be diesel, liquid propane or gas models. Primarily, the ICE or internal combustion engine units are used outdoors, since they produce some emissions and are able to operate in rough weather conditions. However, propane-powered units, could be used indoors as long as proper ventilation is used. It is better to know what specific requirements you have to utilize the forklift for and what kinds of settings you would be working in, in order to ensure you pick the best unit which would meet your requirements.

Internal Combustion Engine Benefits
Some of the benefits of internal combustion engines include a lower initial purchase price, compared to a similar capacity electric truck. This could vary anywhere from 20% to 40% lower. The Internal Combustion Engine units are fast and easy to refuel. This feature really reduces downtime as there is no need to recharge any batteries, as there is with electric units.

To the similarly equipped electric truck, internal combustion models do provide a higher performance capabilities with far heavier lift capacities compared to electric lift truck units. Over recent years, there have been many changes regarding emissions technology and this has resulted in lower total levels of emission. ICE trucks remain popular with load sizes about 8,000 pounds and even a lot higher in specific applications such as lumberyard settings, steel manufacturing facilities and ports.

Internal Combustion Engine Disadvantages
There are a few disadvantages to the ICE units. For example, they use a higher cost-per-hour to operate as compared to electric trucks. This is mostly because of maintenance costs and fuel. What's more, these units normally produce more noise compared to the electric units since they run louder. Internal Combustion Engine trucks also have fuel-storage requirements to consider too.
