Electric Forklifts run on heavy and large lead batteries. These batteries have to be recharged and once fully charged forklift trucks can be operated without any problems continuously for 5 to 6 hours at a stretch. These days many companies buy electric forklift trucks for various reasons. Some of the main reasons are no fuel emissions, less maintenance, less noise emission and more lifespan. Electric forklifts are used worldwide in different sectors such as the aviation sector, shipping companies, warehouses etc.
Most forklifts are used to carry heavy objects weighing more than 3 to 5 tons. The weight of an electric forklift is about 2.5 and 3.0 tons. Such forklifts are best suited for indoor warehouses since there is no fuel emission. There are larger versions of electric forklifts that are used to carry heavy materials and stacked pallets and are mostly used in the shipping industry. Forklifts can also enter empty shipping containers and load pallets inside the container.
A closer look at the forklift will make you realize that they are operated with rear wheel steering. This helps the operator to turn around within confined and congested areas easily. It is a bit complicated as compared to driving a 4 wheel vehicle on the roads as they are operated with front wheel steering. The operator plays a very important role as it requires thorough experience to use a forklift.
The forks of a forklift are attached to its handle which is used to lift heavy objects. Another advantage of electric forklifts is that its fork can be raised to a height from 10 feet to 15 feet depending upon the model of the forklift. These forklifts can also be operated during the night as they come with headlights for night vision.
