Daewoo Gas Forklifts

Hazards of Type-G lift trucks
The forklift is essential for performing warehouse tasks. These extremely capable equipment raise and move loads of huge size from one location to another. Lift trucks have many variations. The primary variation is the way in which different units are fueled. "LP" lift trucks are the kind that is most common. They utilize liquid propane. Type "E" forklifts have big rechargeable batteries and run on electricity. Type "D" lift trucks use diesel and type "G" utilize gasoline. While all types of forklifts, similar to any piece of heavy machinery, can pose a hazard, gasoline powered forklifts carry the most risks.

Fire
Type G forklifts can present a fire hazard. Gasoline-powered lift trucks are not held to rigorous standards in reducing lessening fire hazards. The biggest cause of fire is due to gasoline leaks that allow gasoline fumes to escape. This can result from mishaps and from driving on extremely rough terrain or normal wear. These circumstances pose a danger and could cause fire. Hence, a typical Type G forklift must never be utilized in conditions where elevated fire risk is deemed not acceptable. For instance, these units must not be used around hazardous or explosive chemicals.

Explosion
Type G forklifts also pose a danger of explosion, as do those that run on diesel and liquid propane. A type of lift truck that run on gasoline could explode as a result of a serious accident in circumstances where a gasoline leak and an ignition source are both present. An explosion can happen when sparks are created in the collision and the sparks ignite the gasoline.

Fumes and Exhaust
Due to bad fumes, the gas lift truck does pose a risk for inhalation, that could be deadly in higher concentrations. Fumes can result from gasoline leaks or from the exhaust itself. Therefore, a Type G lift truck is not recommended for any environment which is poorly ventilated. The exhaust would present a serious danger in enclosed places. This kind of forklift should be utilized carefully when operated in close proximity to people.
