Internal Combustion Diesel Forklift

Diesel forklift:


Diesel engines are characterized by cheap fuel, high power, strong climbing ability, low requirements on the road surface, long operation duration, good maintenance performance, and cheap accessories.


Forklifts powered by diesel engines have large vibrations, high noise, and black smoke emissions during operation, which pollute the air.
