As with all other types of forklifts, operators have to be competent and well trained before controlling the vehicle. Walkie forklifts operate by electric power and are typically controlled by an operator directing from behind. The motor powers the forklift in order to move the heavy load. These are ideal vehicles for stacking in narrow or congested areas and those which require minimal turning circles and superior maneuverability.

Safety concerns are important to take into consideration when using walkie forklifts. The motor which helps to move the vehicle improves speed and ease of operation and when it is not engaged, the electric forklift will be stationary. The higher the voltage of the battery supply, the greater the power and lifting capacity a forklift will have.

Walkies are most commonly counterbalanced in order to prevent the vehicle from tipping over due to the combination of load weight and motion, especially when moving on a grade or around a turn. It is important to never move the forklift vehicle with a raised load as this offsets the balance of the machine. Other types of industrial trucks will use stabilizing legs and heavy duty masts which provide added structural strength to the procedure.

Walkie forklifts have optional foldable platforms, multiple lowering speeds and varying fork lengths and lift heights. The three main types of walkie forklift are forklift-fork-over, straddle leg and counterbalanced. Narrow aisle facilities use forkover trucks as they are the best designed for stacking in constricted spaces. Straddle leg trucks are designed with a stabilization leg allowing the forklifts to manage heavy loads and maximum heights.

Counterbalanced forklifts contain additional weights in the body of the truck that work against the weight of the load being handled. Counterbalanced forklifts are used instead of straddle-leg lifts when the stabilization leg prevents placing pallets close together. The extra weight prevents the forklift from toppling over when a load is raised or lowered by countering the applied tension of the load.
