FORK LIFTS
     
What is the difference between a counter balanced truck and a fork lift?  
  Both are essentially the same though the term counter balanced trucks is normally associated with electric fork lifts while the term 'fork lifts' are used to denote IC engine driven fork lifts
   
Can Forklift be used in a warehouse instead of Stackers?
  Stackers are to be used primarily for stacking and retrieval of palletised goods within the closed environs of warehouses. They are highly maneuverable and can be used in narrow aisle spaces. Forklifts are to be used primarily for loading, unloading and transferring the goods over long distances. Foklists can also be used both indoors and outdoors. Depending on the application and warehouse conditions, Forklifts can also be used for stacking and retrieving but would require wide aisles. However where stackers can be used, it would be uneconomical to use forklift for stacking and retrieval
   
What is the advantage of using three wheel forklifts?  
  Three wheel forklifts are generally compact and have smaller turning radius as compared to four wheel forklifts. They are more easily maneuverable in confined spaces as compared to four wheel trucks
     
What are the limitations of three wheel forklifts?  
  Three wheel fork lifts requires level floors and are generally available upto 2MT capacity only and typically they have maximum lift height of 5.5 to 6.0 meters only.
     
Are three wheel forklifts inherently unstable?  
  No. In fact three wheel forklift have three point contact which is quite adequate for stability as three points form a plane where as in four point contact it may be quite possible that all four contact points need not be in same plane thereby affecting the stability. How ever the stability of any fork lift would depend on the center of gravity falling with in the stability triangle of the base.
