A Forklift is a powered industrial truck used to lift and transport materials within manufacturing, warehousing and distribution environments.

These lift trucks can be powered either by an internal combustion engine or an electric motor. Electric Motors are most common. Engines may be diesel, kerosene, petrol, natural gas, butane, or propane fueled.
