Stand Up Rider Electric Forklift

Suitable for: Indoor use

This is one of the most versatile forklifts and is ideal for warehouse use. As its name suggests, operators are required to stand while operating the forklift.

This vehicle has a slim profile that allows for quick and easy navigation between narrow aisles. It also has a better field of view, even when reversing.

Electric Pneumatic Forklift

Suitable for: Indoor and outdoor use

This type of forklift allows for both indoor and outdoor usage. When used outdoors, this forklift operates similarly to an all-terrain or diesel-powered forklift. Yet, they are more cost-efficient than diesel-powered units as they do not require refuelling or changing of oils.

High Capacity Electric Forklift

Suitable for: Indoor use

If you prefer an electric forklift but require a vehicle that allows for extremely heavy lifting, these high capacity forklifts are the ideal choice for you. They are able to lift up to 18,150kg worth of loads and are highly versatile. Additionally, they offer superior manoeuvrability and visibility.

Benefits of Electric Forklifts

  • Easy to Manoeuvre

    Electric forklifts are easy to manoeuvre and can perform very tight turns in confined spaces. Additionally, they are adaptable for many different types of applications.

  • Environmentally Friendly

    Electric forklifts operate on powerful traction batteries. Therefore, they do not emit any exhaust gas, reducing air pollution.

  • Cost Advantages

    Despite the high initial costs of the batteries and charging stations, electrical forklifts last longer than diesel-powered ones. Hence, they are more cost-efficient.

  • Easier Maintenance

    Electric forklifts have fewer moving parts and they wear out more slowly as well. Thus, mechanical repairs are less frequent. In addition, this type of forklift does not use coolants or transmission fluids. Hence, constant replacement or change of fluids is not required.

  • Silent and Comfortable

    These forklifts are often preferred for indoor use due to their low noise levels. Moreover, they produce fewer vibrations as compared to diesel-powered units, delivering a more comfortable and safe operation.

Choosing An Electric Forklift

If you require an electric forklift for indoor use, a 3-wheel or stand up rider will be suitable as they are able to operate in tight environments. However, if you need to move heavy loads indoors, a high capacity forklift may be recommended.

On the other hand, due to their superior stability, 4-wheel and electric pneumatic forklifts may be preferred for outdoor applications where there are uneven surfaces.
