Internal combustion forklifts

  • up to 6000 mm
  • up to 5000 - 6000 - 7000 - 10000 kg

When it comes to lifting heavy loads and working long hours, internal combustion engine forklifts are a reliable choice. Typically powered by diesel, or gas, these forklifts use an internal combustion engine to convert fuel into energy. Internal combustion engine forklifts can have load capacities from 1.5 to 10.0 tons. This makes them indispensable for heavy industrial environments like construction, forestry, terminals, etc. Internal combustion forklifts are ideal for working outdoors in all weather conditions and provide robust productivity over long working shifts.

However, when choosing a forklift truck, especially for indoor use, the type of engine drive must be considered due to harmful emissions.


1. Diesel or LPG forklift?

When choosing a diesel or LPG forklift truck, it is important to understand the specific needs of your business.

LPG forklifts have some advantages: CO2 emissions are approximately half those of diesel engines, making them more suitable for indoor use.

Diesel forklifts are recognized for their high performance, but they are noisier than their LPG counterparts and can be sensitive to cold starts. Despite these minor drawbacks, their efficiency in heavy-duty applications is unrivalled.

2. How does an internal combustion forklift work?

Internal combustion forklifts work by converting the chemical energy of the fuel into mechanical combustion energy, which drives the forklift's lifting mechanisms. This makes them ideal for many industrial and commercial applications, enabling them to perform heavy-duty tasks efficiently.

3. What advantages do internal combustion forklifts have?

Internal combustion engine forklifts have obvious advantages over their electric counterparts, especially in terms of driving and lifting speed, as well as the ability to climb slopes. Unlike electric forklifts, the operating time of combustion engine forklifts is not limited by battery capacity, making them suitable for long-term use.

4. How to choose the right forklift?

There are several key factors to consider when choosing the right forklift: maximum load weight, lift height, indoor or outdoor use, daily working shifts, your budget, and reliable service partner.

By carefully considering these factors, you will be able to choose a forklift that will meet your operational needs efficiently and affordably.
