How to choose between electric forklift and diesel forklift

Each type of forklift will be used in different environmental situations. Choosing the correct type can effectively improve the efficiency of warehousing operations and reduce the occurrence of accidents. On the contrary, it will affect the efficiency and increase the accident rate. In fact, electric forklifts and diesel forklifts each have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Let’s talk about diesel forklifts first:
Advantages: The diesel engine has sufficient horsepower and high output power, and can adapt to a variety of environments. It can also survive some more difficult environments, and the fuel replenishment on demand is relatively timely, and the endurance is not to mention.
Disadvantages: Diesel engines are noisy and emit large amounts of tail gas pollution. The engines require regular maintenance and are troublesome to repair if they break down. If operated indoors, it will seriously affect indoor air quality. In addition, the car body will be relatively large to accommodate the engine, and the flexibility is low, requiring a 4-4.5 meter wide channel to rotate, and it cannot be used in a small space.
For electric forklifts, all power is output by the electric motor.
Advantages: The electric motor can achieve zero emissions and pollution as power output, and the motor works relatively quietly. It is easy to maintain and relatively simple to repair. It is more convenient to use indoors or in small space passages, and it is easier to operate than a diesel forklift. Generally, it can be operated flexibly when the width reaches 2.7 meters to 2.9 meters.
Disadvantages: The power is smaller than that of a diesel forklift. If the battery is short of power, you need to stop work to recharge. A full charge takes a long time, 10-14 hours. Basically, it is charged during the day and at night. If you forget to charge it one day, you will have to stop working and charge it the next day. Unless there is a spare battery for replacement, the battery life is really not that small compared to that of a diesel forklift. However, the maintenance cycle of the electric forklift motor is much longer than that of a diesel forklift, and each maintenance takes longer than There are far fewer diesel forklifts, which saves considerable time and labor costs in maintenance. Overall, electric forklifts have less downtime than diesel forklifts. For some electronic equipment factories and other manufacturers that do not have high-quality goods and require a relatively clean environment, electric forklifts are the first choice.
