When you are looking to buy a new or used forklift Lansing, you first need to understand what the main purposes of different forklifts Lansing and then how you will use the lift trucks Lansing. There are three types of forklift Lansing: manual drive, motorized drive, and fork truck. With a manual drive forklift the load movement is manually powered or walk-behind. Motorized-drive forklifts have a motorized drive and, in many cases, a protected cab for the driver. Lansing fork trucks are also motorized, but include features such as cabs and backup alarms. Safety features exist in most Lansing forklifts which are counterbalance to prevent the vehicle from overturning, hand rails, safety rails, backup alarms, and horns. Some forklift Lansing also come with a rotating element such as a turntable. Truck-mounted materials handling Lansing are mounted on the back or bed of a utility truck. These vehicles either come with the truck or they are sold independently for later mounting. Lift capacity and stroke are important things to consider when buying Lansing forklifts. Stroke is the difference between the fully-lowered and fully-raised lift positions. Additional specifications for forklifts include fuel type and tire type. Fuel choices include electricity, liquid propane (LP), natural gas, compressed natural gas (CNG), propane, gasoline, fuel cells and diesel fuel. There are two basic tire types for forklifts and Lansing fork trucks: pneumatic and solid. Pneumatic or air-inflated tires provide great load-cushioning and drive traction. Solid or cushion tires do not puncture and require less maintenance than pneumatic tires; however, solid or cushion tires offer less shock absorption. Our forklift dealers are available to discuss these many features when you are the market for a new fork truck Lansing. There are five classes of forklifts. Class I forklifts are electric-motor rider trucks, either stand-up operator or seated three-wheel units. Rider units are counterbalanced and may have cushion or pneumatic wheels. Class II forklifts are electric-motor trucks for narrow aisle or inventory stock/order picking applications. They may have extra reach or swing-mast functions. Class III forklifts are electric-motor trucks, either walk-behind or standing-rider operated. Automated pallet lift-trucks and high lift models are often counterbalanced. Class IV forklifts are rider fork trucks, with cabs and seated controls, internal combustion engines, and solid or "cushion" tires. Class V forklifts are rider fork trucks, with cabs and seated controls, internal combustion engines, and pneumatic tires. Like Class IV forklifts, they are typically counterbalanced. Class VI forklifts are sit-down rider, tow tractor lifts. They are supplied with electric or internal combustion engines. Class VII forklifts are designed for use on rough terrain. Typical applications include agriculture, logging and construction. Class VIII forklifts include all personnel and burden carriers.
