Designed to help with heavy lifting in a commercial environment, warehouse forklifts give you some extra lifting strength in the workplace. Get some assistance in your warehouse with forklifts from brands including CAT, Mitsubishi and Nissan.
Diesel forklifts are great for power. Theyre more fuel efficient than LPG forklifts and have a longer engine life. However, they do give out harmful exhaust fumes and so, even with exhaust catalysts and purifiers, diesel forklifts are more suited to outside use.
LPG, or gas, forklifts are more affordable than diesel or electric forklifts and can be used indoors and out. Theyre quieter than diesel models and have faster travel speeds and acceleration.
Electric forklifts maybe more expensive to buy but theyre certainly cheaper to maintain and operate. Theyre not really suitable for outdoor use but they shine in the warehouse. Theyre easy to drive, less expensive to operate and there are zero fumes. They are also versatile and come in all shapes and sizes, including three and four-wheeled configurations as well as stand on, reach or sit on.
Reach forklift trucks have a higher maximum lift height and offer excellent manoeuvrability. They are perfect for work in environments with dense storage and where stock needs to be stored and retrieved at speed.
Narrow Isle Forklifts
Ideal for warehouses, narrow aisle trucks offer increased safety, reduced running costs, improved handling and, because aisles are narrower, they allow for overall increased site storage capacity.
Three or Four Wheels
Four-wheeled forklifts are ideal for rougher and more uneven terrain as well as gradients, great if the forklift is to go in and out of the warehouse. On the other hand, three-wheeled forklifts need flat floors but in return offer a small turning circle which is perfect for smaller or densely stocked areas.
