The International Organization for Standardization ISO/TC110 is called Industrial Vehicles. It is often used for the transportation of large objects in storage and is usually driven by fuel engines or batteries. Next, let's take a look at the scope of application and model classification of the Rough terrain forklift.

What does forklift apply to?

A forklift is widely used in ports, stations, airports, freight yards, factory workshops, warehouses, distribution centers, and distribution centers, etc. It is used for loading, unloading, and handling palletized goods in cabins, carriages, and containers. It is essential in pallet transportation and container transportation devices. The truck-mounted forklift plays a very important role in the logistics system of the enterprise and is the main force in the material handling equipment. Extensively used in stations, anchorages, airfields, manufactories, storages, and other sectors of the public frugality.

What are the types of forklift models?

There are many forklift truck brands to choose from on the market, the models are complex, and the products themselves are highly technical and very professional, so the choice of models and suppliers is often faced by many purchasing companies. Forklifts can generally be divided into three orders internal combustion forklifts, electric forklifts, and storehouse forklifts.

Internal combustion forklift is further divided into ordinary internal combustion forklift, heavy forklift, container forklift, and side forklift. First, ordinary internal combustion forklifts generally use diesel, gasoline, liquefied petroleum gas, or natural gas engines as power, with a load capacity of 1.2 to 8.0 tons, and a working channel width of 3.5 to 5.0 meters. Considering the problem of exhaust emigration and noise, it's generally used outside., factory or other places with no special conditions for exhaust emigrations and noise. Due to the convenience of refueling, it can realize nonstop operation for a long time, and it can work in harsh surroundings( similar to stormy days). Second, the heavy-duty forklift uses a diesel engine as power, with a carrying capacity of 10.0 to 52.0 tons, and is generally used for outdoor operations in the wharf, steel, and other industries with heavy cargo. Third, the container forklift uses a diesel engine as power, with a carrying capacity of 8.0 to 45.0 tons, and is generally divided into empty container stackers, heavy container stackers and container reach stackers. For container handlings, such as container yard or port terminal operations. Fourth, the side Diesel forklift is powered by a diesel engine, with a carrying capacity of 3.0 to 6.0 tons. In the case of no turning, it can directly fork the goods from the side, so it is mainly used to fork long-shaped goods, such as wooden strips, steel bars, etc.

The electric forklift is powered by an electric motor and the battery is the energy source. The carrying capacity is 1.0 to 8.0 tons, and the width of the working channel is generally 3.5 to 5.0 meters. Because there's no pollution and low noise, it's extensively used in the inner operation and other working conditions with high environmental conditions, similar to drugs, food, and other diligence. As people pay more attention to environmental protection, electric forklifts are gradually replacing internal combustion forklifts. Since each set of batteries generally needs to be charged after about 8 hours of work, spare batteries are required for multi-shift working conditions.

The warehouse forklift is mainly a forklift designed for the handling of goods in the warehouse. Except for a few warehouse forklifts (such as manual pallet forklifts) that are driven by manpower, others are driven by electric motors, which are widely used in the warehouse industry because of their compact body, flexible movement, and lightweight and good environmental performance. When working in multiple shifts, the motor-driven storage telescopic forklift requires a battery backup.
