Common Types of Forklifts:
Electric forklifts are used to move materials over short distances. These trucks usually have forks protruding from the front of the vehicle, prototypical masts, and a counterbalance in the back of the truck. The load weight is often equalized by the weight of the large electric battery.
Cushion Tire Forklift
If most of the lifting is done indoors on smooth surfaces, or outdoors on asphalt, then a cushion tire forklift is suitable. Cushion tire forklifts have very little ground clearance and a much smaller chassis than pneumatic forklifts. Cushion tire forklifts may also utilize traction-style tires.
Narrow-aisle forklifts include reach trucks used to grab pallets, and order pickers, in which the operator platform can be raised or lowered to select individual items to put together in a combined order. Narrow-aisle forklifts are often front-wheel-drive, articulated trucks initially developed as specialized space-saving warehouse equipment.
Pallet jacks are also known as pallet trucks, jiggers, and pallet pumps. They're used as a tool to lift and move palletized items. Pallet jacks are a common, basic form of forklift truck, intended to move pallets in busy warehouses. A tiller-like mechanism often steers the jack component.
Pneumatic tire forklifts often have tires with air in them and are mostly used outdoors in yard work on gravel, though they can be used indoors. Pneumatic tires are longer and broader than cushion tires on indoor forklifts. The two most common pneumatic tire forklifts have either solid or air-filled tires.
Stand Up Forklift
Stand up forklifts have unique dock-to-stock loading capabilities and the ability to navigate narrow aisles in packed warehouses. They are easy to maneuver and require less operational space than sit-down forklifts. The forks can be hoisted or extended using push buttons, levers, or pedals fitted to the machine.
Where counterbalance forklifts can become unstable when trying to handle materials such as pipes and wooden planks, side loader forklifts specialize in the secure handling of long loads. Sideloaders are built with large, open bays, mast, and fork carriage perpendicular to the cab, and diesel, LPG, or propane can power them.
Truck Mounted Forklift
These forklifts are either mounted on the rear of carrier vehicles or within a protective box mounted between axles. Common truck-mounted manufacturers include Palfinger, Moffett, and Terberg. Common truck-mounted forklifts offer 2.5-ton lifting capacity and multi-directional steering, and one-side offload features.
Walkie Stacker Forklift
Walkie stackers are walk-behind forklifts or pallet trucks operated by pedestrians at ground level, used for transporting small capacity items around a warehouse or small storeroom. There are many types of walkie stackers, including manual and powered. Suited for indoor use, they typically have small wheels suited for use on concrete flooring.
