The most common type of forklift is the man powered hydraulic forklift. This forklift requires a man to walk behind and guide the lifts.
It is otherwise known as a palette jack it has two horizontal prongs that lift lift pallets carrying goods, it is only has the ability of lifting a few inches as it uses no electricity, petrol or diesel, it can lift a palette enough to guide and push around a warehouse or on site premises. Although only a few inches it I’d still capable of lifting weights up to 2 tonnes.
The person powered forklift of course is good for the environment as there is no use of carbon or gas, this can be great for any construction or warehousing company keen on improving their carbon footprint.
They also save on cost as the price of these non fuel forklifts are cheaper and offer good value for money.
