Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Forklifts
Which forklift do I need?
Having the right forklift for your application and work environment is necessary for efficiency, productivity, and safety. The experienced Royal Forklift team will identify the lift trucks that are best suited for you and your business based on your specific needs. We can help you choose from electric forklifts, aerial lifts, scissor lifts, pallet jacks, rider pallet trucks, personnel lifts, reach trucks, narrow aisle forklifts, cushion tire forklifts, pneumatic tire forklifts, rough terrain forklifts, sideloaders, and more.
Is an LPG, diesel or electric forklift best?
Each type of forklift has its advantages and disadvantages and the characteristics you choose will depend on your unique application. LPG and diesel offer more variable power, more torque, and can be refueled anywhere, but they produce noticeable emissions and typically require more maintenance. Electric forklifts are emission free, require less maintenance, run quietly, and are easy to use, but have to be recharged when they run out of power.
How should I maintain my forklift?
Royal Forklift offers a variety of maintenance options to keep your fleet at peak performance, including periodic maintenance (PM) programs to fit your schedule and fleet size. A periodic maintenance plan will ensure that your forklift will be maintained at the proper times by a qualified technician. We offer a wide range of sizes and types of forklifts to rent if repairs are necessary.
How should I train my forklift operators?
Forklift operators must complete a detailed forklift safety training course from individuals with extensive expertise in powered industrial trucks. Operators have to be trained on the actual forklift they will be operating. OSHA has specific requirements that can be found at OSHA.gov.
Royal Forklift offers OSHA-approved classroom training that can be tailored to your type of lift truck or application(s). Training is done on-site and consists of safety videos, safety test, and a driving test and/or evaluation in the area the unit operates. Instructors grade each test on-site and issue licenses and certificates of completion.
