Even though they do not strictly speaking belong in the category of real forklifts
these hand-operated electric lifting carts are referred to as electric forklifts
. These battery operated machines are a necessary component of any facility, where heavy loads need to be transported around small spaces. Pallet trucks
do not have a driver's cab and are hand operated; the forklift operator is walking behind it. The smallest electric forklift is the reach truck, which is operated by a driver who is standing. This enables easy forward and backward movements, as well as being able to successfully manoeuvring tight corridors. For the loading of, for example, groceries only small electrically operated forklifts
with a carrying capacity of a few hundred kilograms, are widely offered. Electric forklifts are available in a variety of sizes and lifting capacities. The range of electric forklifts
has increased through special constructions such as the side loader, four way side loader, coil stapler, compact front lift and automatically guided vehicle systems.
