Forklifts That Are Ideal for Indoor Usage
In their day, internal-combustion engines revolutionised the way the industrial sector functioned. In turn, it also revolutionised transport on a commercial level. Currently, the same phenomenon is happening in terms of electric passenger vehicles. Although these types of vehicles have only recently been introduced to the mass market, the industrial sector has been using this concept for quite some time already. Since most storage facilities are indoors, the use of internal-combustion engines on forklifts is not recommended because their hazardous emissions can build up to dangerous levels. So, if you are looking for a supplier that has battery-powered lifting equipment for sale in South Africa, we have you covered.
The issue with internal-combustion engines is that they emit exhaust gases that are dangerous within an indoor environment. Run a petrol or diesel engine for long enough in an enclosed environment and dangerous levels of toxic emissions will build up to the detriment of people’s health and safety. Therefore, industrial warehouses’ indoor material-handling equipment should be electric instead. Let’s have a look at our selection of indoor forklifts that is for sale in South Africa.
Electric Forklifts for Your Warehouse
South Africa has a large industrial sector with many businesses that use industrial equipment in their daily operations. Warehouses are often a large part of their business; it’s where they store their products and stacked pallets. To optimise warehouse operations, such a facility needs a suitable forklift fleet. We have electric counterbalanced lift trucks for sale that could make a world of difference in your storage facility. However, it can be tricky to find the right model for your needs. Luckily, we can assist in this regard.
We offer a variety of leading brands in this industry, including our own – Toyota. Our stand-in electric forklift models are quick to mount and easy to operate. These trucks are ideal for light- to medium-duty applications. If you need a fleet with quick response times and you only have to deal with relatively lightweight pallets, we have the perfect range for sale for your South African business. From a standing position, the operator has excellent all-round visibility; the narrow and tall body of the truck also allows for excellent manoeuvrability in confined spaces and narrow aisles.
If you need an electric forklift that can handle more weight and offers seating for the driver, our 3- and 4-wheeled ranges are better suited to your needs. These counterbalanced lift trucks use weights on the rear of the vehicle to keep it balanced and the front stable at all times. Rear-wheel steering is unsuitable for cars travelling at high speeds but, when travelling at low speeds, this greatly aids the manoeuvrability of material handlers. Therefore, most of the counterbalanced trucks we have for sale steer by their rear wheels.
In terms of passenger vehicles, the electric revolution is slowly starting, even in South Africa. However, when running an indoor storage facility, battery power has already been the standard for a good while. Aside from the comprehensive forklift selection that we have for sale, we also have industrial batteries to power these trucks. We have a selection of high-quality industrial battery choices for businesses that run indoor material-handling fleets. We also offer fleet-management solutions to assist you in optimising your fleet operations facility.
