Mariotti is known for producing the most compact electric rider forklifts on the market. Their newest model of AC forklifts are no exception. Mariotti’s line of AC sit-down forklifts are able to work in tight, compact spaces where no other forklift can normally operate, each possessing capacities of lifting between 750lbs to 2,300lbs. This allows you to complete your work in different environments.

These forklifts can drive through aisles as narrow as 31 inches, and heights as low as 75 inches. In addition, they can also maneuver through elevators and doorways and successfully distribute a heavy load. The Mariotti AC forklift has mast heights from 113” to 224,” with side shift and power steering. The Mariotti AC lift also has fewer moving parts and less maintenance needs. For added operator safety, the Mariotti comes complete with a strobe light and back-up alarm as standard equipment.

So why is AC power an advantage?

There are a few reasons. First, DC is the simple positive-and-negative type of electricity that you probably experimented with in 7th grade science. One benefit is that it is easy to store in batteries. That is why portable electronics – flashlights, cell phones, laptops – use DC power; they have to store it. Most plug-in vehicles are portable so many use DC batteries, even though most of them have AC motors.

AC electricity’s key advantage is that it can be transmitted economically over long distances. That is why AC power comes in through the power lines to your home, and is what is available at power outlets. Your standard appliances that use electricity directly from an outlet- refrigerators and washing machines, for example, – use AC power. The bottom line is with AC charging stations, you have no need for special grid hookups.
