Workhorses of modern industry

Phoenix Texas Forklifts

Phoenix forklifts come in two varieties, electric and internal combustion (IC). Electric forklifts are typically used indoors such as in warehousing, construction and manufacturing. They’re cheaper to operate that other forklifts and ideal for very heavy lifting. IC forklifts are generally used outdoors in places like construction sites and require refueling. Many people use the term Phoenix forklifts to describe a great many types of lifts. While most people think of a forklift as a vehicle that’s drive with the characteristic “fork” on the front that automatically moves up and down to lift and move items, even within that category there are more different kinds to choose from.

The motorized Phoenix forklifts most people picture are actually called fork trucks. They’re like heavy equipment only in miniature, with a cab the operator sits in, and typically beeps and alarms to let others know when they’re backing up for safety. Motorized-drive forklifts fall into this category, usually with a relatively closed in cab for the operator, with no manual lift movement at all; instead everything’s motorized.

Manual drive forklifts or fork trucks, on the other hand, may have manual load movement while everything other part of the machine is motorized. Often, manual drive trucks are a little cheaper because of the manual component which is why some businesses opt for them. When the lifting is going to be extremely heavy, it’s best to choose a completely motorized lift. Safety handrails and turntables on the fork truck are also added safety measures that should opt for when choosing a forklift for your business.

There are many variations among Phoenix forklifts to take into consideration, with each different type having a different price point which may or may not make it more desirable for your business. Some are made for a standing operator, rather than having a cab in which the operator sits. Some electric varieties are designed for narrow or small spaces. These are usually stand-up operator lifts, made narrow with special counterbalancing and straddle legs for stability, that are good for moving items in minimal space.

Rough-terrain Phoenix forklifts are designed for moving over uneven surfaces and should be the type you choose if you’ll be using the forklift outdoors. Motorized hand-pallet jacks are an option that can save money and typically take less room than a typical driven forklift. With these, the operator may stand on the back or even walk behind the truck.

When a forklift is requires moving items from high spaces, a reach forklift is the best option. These trucks have large, pneumatic tires and a boom on the front. These can be used even on uneven ground, so they can be used outdoors safely, because of the counterbalancing.

Many people couldn’t look at a variety of forklifts and immediately see the difference between them, but it’s important to choose the type that best suits your business operations. And if your business really needs a forklift but price is an issue, used Phoenix forklifts can be a good option.
