Not sure how to answer? When selecting a lift capacity, keep in mind that your load shape will play a role. As the load center changes, so does capacity. Oddly-shaped loads will have different needs than standard pallets.
When choosing a lift height, add six inches to your tallest rack shelving height. If you’re operating outdoors, you may need to consider typical projects or applications to get an estimate of the lift height you need.
You’ll also need to choose an engine type. Electric options run on a rechargeable battery and produce zero emissions. Propane models are easy to refuel and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor operations. In contrast, gas and diesel forklifts are only used outdoors. Diesel forklifts have more torque, but gas forklifts are faster. Learn more about forklift fuel types here.
