Liquid Propane Gas (LPG) and Diesel Powered

The tougher the environment of your worksite, the more heavy duty your equipment will need to be. Diesel powered lift trucks are the largest of the vehicles with load capacities between 1500 kg and 16000 kg. They are suitable for outdoor use and they are a good choice for towing or working on gradient surfaces.

Liquid Propane Gas lift (LPG) trucks are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Smaller and more manoeuvrable than their diesel counterparts, their maximum load capacity ranges from about 1500 kg to 7000 kg.

LPG vehicles are able to accelerate faster than both diesel and electric vehicles however they also burn through fuel more quickly.

Electric Powered

Electric powered lift trucks are quiet, suitable for indoor use and relatively easy to drive and maneuver. Depending on the model, these vehicles can lift anywhere between 1600 kg to 5500 kg and come equipped with advanced electronics for various applications.

Styles of Lift Truck

At Modern Forklift, we understand that your business is unique – and a vehicle that works well for one business isn’t necessarily going to be suitable for another business. Just as there is more than one type of power for a forklift, there are also multiple styles – each built for a different type of job. Allow us to help you choose the model(s) that are right for your business. The following are a few styles of lift truck that we are able to supply.

Counterbalance style

The most common style of forklift, they have forks in the front so they are able to drive right up to the load and lift it.

Three wheel counterbalance style

The lift portion works the same as the regular counterbalance but the 3 wheel system allows for better maneuverability with two wheels in the front and one in the back.

Reach style

Intended for warehouse use they have extended lift reach, in some cases as much as 10 meters. They have low undercarriage and use legs for stabilizing in place of counterbalance.

Side loader style

As the name suggests, this model carries its load on the side instead of in the front. This style is often used for long loads such as lumber or long lengths of pipes that may cause a front load lift truck to lose stability.


These are specialty forklifts that provide better access than other styles of forklifts.

These styles are available in various power types and we can help you decide which one is right for your Toronto business.

Power types

Along with the styles the power types are electric, diesel, and liquid propane gas. Each one handles different terrain, and types of use such as indoor and outdoor. If you need a quiet forklift and it is used inside all the time, then electric may just be right for you depending on what style you need.
We carry all the major brands of forklifts, offer superior customer service, and we also offer a few different purchase options.  Between the styles and power types it can get confusing but one of our team members can steer you in the right direction.
