Electric Vs. Internal Combustion Forklift Types

The major distinction between forklift types is whether the forklift is electric or an internal combustion forklift. Each type has their own advantages, but may not work for every business.

In general, electric forklifts have lower emissions and longer economic value. Companies often find fewer maintenance issues with electric forklifts, but they usually come at a higher initial cost. If your team is not ready to make a big investment up front, consider an internal combustion forklift.

IC forklifts are easy to refuel, so they are good for multi-shift operations. To ensure your team’s safety, however, never use an IC forklift in an area with poor ventilation. The higher emissions can cause health risks. Maintenance and extra fuel costs are higher with these forklift types, but the initial cost is generally lower.
