Electric vehicles are those vehicles which use one or more electric motors as driving force. These were first introduced in the mid of 19th century when electricity was the only source of energy to pilot a variety of vehicles. The internal combustion engine (ICE) had completely replaced the electrically driven engines but the electric power has remained in the driving position in case of the other vehicles like trains and smaller vehicles of all types. Electric vehicles were among the earliest automobiles. Before the electricity took the dominant role in the automobile industry, powerful internal combustion engines were in great demand in picking up the speed in early 1900s.
Electric vehicles are different from the fossil-fuel-powered-vehicles as they can receive the energy from a wide range of sources including fossil fuels, nuclear power, and renewable sources such as tidal power, solar power and wind power or combination of the aforesaid powers. The electricity used in the electric vehicles is stored by the help of a battery, flywheel, and super capacitor or fuel cell. A key advantage of electric vehicles is their ability to recover braking energy as electricity can be restored to the on-board battery. Electric vehicles include electric cars, electric trains, electric Lorries, electric airplanes, electric boats, electric motorcycles and scooters, electric spacecraft and electric pallet stacker.
A pallet stacker is a type of pallet jack used to lift, move and stack goods that are too heavy to lift manually. A pallet stacker�s main purpose is to load and unload pallets on trucks, and to transfer pallets from one location to another inside a warehouse or storage space. Most pallet stackers are built of heavy-duty materials to withstand extreme weights and heavy daily use. Pallet stackers or jacks are operated from an upright or seated position. Pallet stackers are typically divided into two types: manual and powered. A manual pallet stacker is a hand-powered device which makes the job of lifting heavy items an easier task. It is usually a walk-behind machine, which means it is operated by pushing and pulling the jack to its desired location. These can take load upto one ton (907.18kgs) depending upon the maximum weight capacity of the manual stacker model.
Electric vehicles are riding high on the scale of popularity. Take the case of an pallet stacker which is more competent than a manual pallet stacker as the former model lifts the heavy weights automatically with the help of electricity. An electric pallet stacker can lift load upto five tons (4535.92kgs). A pallet stacker is comprised of some basic components. The stacker�s branches slide underneath a pallet which moves, and lift it to the desired height. The stacker�s engine compartment is hydraulic, electronic, or gas-run equipment that powers the machine. A pallet stacker is operated with a sit-down position known as the forklift.
