at present, forklift truck industry is developing rapidly and its variety tends to be abundant. electric forklift truck and diesel forklift truck, liquefied gas forklift truck can be described as tripod, each has its own characteristics and application characteristics. the following compares the advantages and disadvantages of the three forklift trucks and their scope of application, so that we can have a deeper understanding of the three forklift trucks.
advantages of battery forklift: battery forklift is powered by battery-motor. it has good starting performance, smooth operation, no noise, no exhaust gas emission, no air pollution, and simple operation.
disadvantages: the overhaul of the control system is complex, requiring charging room and charging equipment, and spare batteries when working in shifts, which require high road surface requirements. due to the limitation of the capacity of batteries, the power of general motors is small and the climbing ability is poor.
suitable environment: battery forklift truck is suitable for working on flat and solid indoor ground, especially in the environment with high requirement for air cleanliness. internal combustion forklift trucks are balanced heavy forklift trucks powered by diesel, gasoline and liquefied gas. they are widely used in logistics, warehouse, workshop and other cargo handling.
yun. diesel forklift truck and lpg internal combustion forklift truck are more widely used.
advantages of diesel forklift truck: diesel engine is characterized by low fuel price, high power, strong climbing ability, low requirements for road surface, long operation duration, good maintenance performance and cheap accessories, so at this stage, the main engine of internal combustion forklift truck is diesel engine, and the main engine is new diesel 490a.
disadvantages: forklift trucks powered by diesel engines have large vibration, high noise, black smoke emission and air pollution.
suitable environment: diesel forklift truck is mainly suitable for outdoor operation, especially in areas with uneven road surface or large gradient, as well as busy operation environment. the lifting weight of diesel forklift trucks is generally above medium tonnage.
advantages of lpg forklift truck: lpg forklift truck has the advantages of cheap fuel, long operation duration, stable operation and low noise. after adding catalyst, it can reduce the emission of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons to a minimum. therefore, lpg forklift truck has almost no black smoke emission and no air pollution.
disadvantage: there are many problems in the storage, transportation and usage of liquefied gas.
applicable environment: suitable for both outdoor and indoor work
