The IC or internal combustion forklifts are used most normally for indoor applications such as manufacturing, trucking, warehousing and bottling. Typically, these units utilize solid rubber tires referred to as cushion tires. The Internal Combustion forklift models could be powered either by dual fuel, diesel or Liquid Petroleum Gas or LPG. The dual fuel units operate with both LPG or Liquid Petroleum Gas and gasoline. These machines are able to run on either fuel but not simultaneously. IC engines are Class 4 lift trucks. The engine is responsible for powering the truck, the hydraulics and all functions of the truck.
