Why Are Forklifts So Important?



Regardless of the size of the company, forklift trucks, especially those supplied by Ailsa Forklift Hire have become an important part of modern manufacturing and warehousing and the truth is that probably every warehouse will have one.



The forklift truck is more than capable of being able to lift heavy goods and other items onto storage shelves or units that are placed up in the lofty heights of a warehouse or storage unit. They are driven by a forklift operator who ensures that the forks of the truck are positioned correctly underneath the goods or cargo that needs to be lifted. The cargo is then lifted into the air on the forks, which are normally made from steel and are more than capable of lifting a tonne or two.

Modern Forklift Trucks



Many of the forklift trucks that are supplied by Ailsa Forklift Hire can run on petrol, propane or electricity depending on the individual type of truck.

Forklifts that run on electricity will have a battery that is attached to the truck that will enable it to run. It could well be the case that the truck will need to be re-charged each night after use and despite this electric trucks can be a great an incredibly useful addition to many warehouses because they do not expel any potentially harmful gases, like other forklift machines do.

Petrol or propane powered forklift trucks can sometimes be much more powerful than ones that are powered by electricity, which can sometimes enable these types of forklifts to be used outdoors.
