The Platinum II internal combustion or IC engine forklift gives greater torque and horsepower ideal for numerous tough outdoor or indoor environments. This particular machine is capable of keeping your operation running smooth and maintaining high productivity. The Platinum II could be powered by Dual Fuel with Gas/LP, Diesel, Liquid Propane or Gas. The fuel management system LP/Gas offered by Nissan optimizes engine operation so as to provide excellent fuel economy and reduced exhaust emissions.

Internal combustion or IC lift trucks burn fuel in engines like automobile engines. These units are the most common alternative for outdoor use since electric units are not able to be utilized safely in the rain. Furthermore, only internal combustion forklifts are able to handle the largest loads. Like for instance, if you require over 15,000 pounds capacity, you would certainly need an internal combustion engine.

IC forklifts operate on liquid propane, diesel fuel, CNG which is compressed natural gas and gas. Normally, the operating costs are usually highest for gasoline and lowest for diesel. Propane and CNG fuels come in somewhere in the middle. Many individuals want their equipment based on existing machines and vehicles on hand. For instance, if you currently have fuel storage and use diesel vehicles, it makes sense to go with diesel forklifts as well.

With their ability to refuel on the fly, the internal combustion forklift offers a big drawback: they can easily be filled up with a new propane canister or at a gas pump and your lift truck is ready to continue working in no time. These units are cheaper to purchase initially than electric forklifts but really cost a lot more per hour to operate.

Furthermore, IC forklifts stand up to certain types of misuse better than electric lift trucks. Specifically, these equipment are used to push or tow loads rather than lifting and driving. Generally, they have better accelerations and top speeds. For outdoor use, this can truly be a big advantage.
