Making the Right Choice
Forklift equipment isn’t necessarily cheap. That’s why it’s important to make the right choice. Not exactly sure what your business needs? Industrial Forklift Truck can help. We offer dozens of resources to help you make a decision.

If you’re not sure which specifications to select, we can help with that too. To determine the lift height, add six inches to your tallest rack shelving. If you operate outdoors, make an estimate based on common worksite applications. To determine the load capacity, consider your typical load weight. Load capacity varies with load center, so you will also need to consider load shape and size.
When choosing a forklift fuel type, your main options are propane, diesel, and gas. Propane forklifts are quick and easy to refuel. These forklifts can be used indoors and outdoors. Diesel and gas forklifts are typically only used outdoors. Diesel forklifts have more torque, but gas forklifts are faster. Learn more about forklift fuel types here.
You also have the option to choose an electric forklift, which uses a battery instead of fuel. Electric forklifts produce zero emissions and are cheaper to maintain than internal combustion models.
Regardless of what equipment you need, Industrial Forklift Truck can help you find it. Let us guide you to the right equipment for your business.
