Electric forklifts can generally be divided into three categories: counterbalanced electric forklifts, storage electric forklifts and reach electric forklifts.
1. Electric counterbalanced forklifts are powered by electric motors and batteries are used as energy sources. The carrying capacity is 1.0 to 4.8 tons, and the working channel width is generally 3.5 to 5.0 meters. No pollution and low noise.
2. Warehousing electric forklifts Warehousing electric forklifts are mainly forklifts designed for cargo handling in warehouses. Except for a few storage electric forklifts (such as manual pallet forklifts) that are driven by manpower, others are driven by electric motors. Because of their compact body, flexible movement, light weight and good environmental performance, they are widely used in the storage industry. When working in multiple shifts, a motor-driven storage forklift needs a spare battery.
3. The forward-moving electric forklift has a carrying capacity of 1.0 to 2.5 tons. The mast can be moved forward or retracted as a whole. When retracted, the width of the working channel is generally 2.7 to 3.2 meters, and the lifting height can reach up to about 11 meters. It is often used in warehouses. Medium-height stacking and picking operations.
