Clark Propane Forklift
Many forklifts are made to run on propane gas. Forklifts which use propane are really easy to refill. The gas is stored in a pressurized tank on the truck's rear. The propane is pushed into the engine, where it is converted into vapor and the vapor combines with air. The throttle of the forklift is used to be able to control the vapor flow. A spark plug ignites the mixture of vapor and air producing pressure which moves the pistons. The pistons turn the wheels and power the hydraulic pump.
Forklifts that utilize propane are recommended for use in warehouses and other buildings because they are clean burning with low emissions.
What enables a forklift to lift and move heavy stuff from one location to another is the hydraulic system. Tubes, cylinders and a pump make up the hydraulic system. The pump forces dense fluid through the tubing and into the cylinders. The build up of pressure pushes a piston, that raises the forks. When the operator lowers the forks, the hydraulic fluid flows out of the cylinders and back in the pump.
Where maneuverability is needed, propane forklifts are the most suitable. Unlike an automobile, a forklift uses its rear wheels to pivot, which enables the forklift to quickly turn on a tight radius.
