Internal combustion (IC) forklifts offer power and strength at an accessible price point. Today’s sophisticated models by Hyster and other manufacturers feature fuel-efficient performance, intuitive controls and increasingly agile maneuverability for working in tight spaces.
McCall Handling sells and services a variety of internal combustion forklifts, ranging in size from compact models to heavy-duty machines capable of moving large items with ease. Our inventory includes both diesel and LPG models.
IC forklifts and lift trucks are ideal for outdoor use, particularly in rough terrain. They are economical to run and often less expensive to purchase outright than a comparable electric model. Unlike electric forklifts, they do not require charging, which means less downtime for your fleet. The main drawbacks to an internal combustion forklift include its increased noise and fumes, as well as the need for proper ventilation when working in indoor spaces.
Whether or not an internal combustion lift truck is right for you will depend on a variety of factors. Let a McCall Handling representative help you make an informed decision — contact us or visit one of our five locations for assistance.
