The first point of consideration is: what do you want the forklift to do? What is the heaviest weight you will be lifting with the forklift? How high do you want the forklift to lift? Where will the forklift be used? (What type of surface will the forklift operate on?) How much will you use the forklift every day? What type of fuel do you want to power your forklift? (gas, L.P. gas, diesel, or electric battery powered.) What is your forklift budget and how much do you want to spend?
These are the questions that need to be answered when you are considering buying a forklift. Call and let us help you with your needs!
It depends on your application. Each power source has its advantages and disadvantages. Internal combustion engines have more variable power, generate more torque, and are much more mobile in that refueling the forklift can be done anywhere. They do, however, require more maintenance and emit noticeable emissions. Electric forklifts have the lowest overall operating cost. Electric forklifts are fume free, have less moving parts, which means less overall maintenance, quiet and clean, and easy to use. Their drawback is an eight hour recharge time when it runs out of power and the forklift needs to be returned to a charger every time. How and where you use a forklift will be a big determinate in what will be best for you. We can provide the solution if you ask us!
No, this is physically impossible due to the frame differences between a solid tire forklift and a forklift with pneumatic tires.
Some forklift manufacturers made a model that would take either tire, but they are still a bit of a compromise between a solid and a pneumatic.
