1 ordinary internal combustion forklift

Diesel, gasoline, liquefied petroleum gas or natural gas engines are generally used as the power. The load capacity is 1.2-8.0 tons, and the working channel width is generally 3.5-5.0 meters. It is usually used in outdoor, workshop or other exhaust gas in consideration of exhaust emissions and noise. Places where there are no special requirements for emissions and noise. Thanks to the easy fuel replenishment, it can be used for long periods of continuous operation and is capable of working in harsh environments such as rain.

2 heavy forklift

The diesel engine is used as the power, and the carrying capacity is 10.0-52.0 tons. It is generally used for outdoor operations in the docks and steel industries where the cargo is heavy.

3 container forklift

The diesel engine is used as the power, and the carrying capacity is 8.0~45.0 tons. It is generally divided into empty container stacker, heavy box stacker and container front hoist. Used in container handling, such as container yards or port terminals.

4 side forklift

The diesel engine is used as the power, and the carrying capacity is 3.0 to 6.0 tons. In the case of no turning, it has the ability to fork goods directly from the side, so it is mainly used to fork long strips of goods, such as wood strips, steel bars, etc.

electric

The electric motor is used as the power source and the battery is the energy source. The carrying capacity is 1.0 to 8.0 tons, and the working channel width is generally 3.5 to 5.0 meters. Because it has no pollution and low noise, it is widely used in indoor operations and other environmentally demanding conditions, such as medicine, food and other industries. With the emphasis on environmental protection, electric forklifts are gradually replacing internal combustion forklifts. Since each battery pack generally needs to be charged after about 8 hours of operation, a spare battery is required for the multi-shift operation.
