Clark Propane Forklift

Clark Propane Forklift

Power
Many forklifts are designed to run on propane gas. Propane-powered forklifts are very simple to refill. The gas is stored inside a pressurized tank on the truck's rear. The propane is pushed into the engine, where it is converted into vapor and then the vapor combines with air. The throttle of the forklift is utilized to control the vapor flow. A spark plug fires up the mix of air and vapor producing pressure which makes the pistons move. The pistons power the hydraulic pump and turn the wheels.

Because the types of forklifts which are powered by propane have low emissions and are clean burning, they are best to be utilized within warehouses and other buildings.

Hydraulics
What allows a forklift to lift and move heavy objects from one location to another is the hydraulic system. Tubes, cylinders and a pump make up the hydraulic system. The pump forces dense fluid in the tubing and into the cylinders. The pressure build up pushes a piston, which lifts the forks. When the operator lowers the forks, the hydraulic fluid flows out of the cylinders and back into the pump.

Steering
Propane forklifts work well where maneuverability is necessary. Unlike a car, a forklift makes use of its back wheels to pivot, that enables the forklift to quickly turn on a tight radius.
