My credo
I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I've never driven a forklift with a clutch, except maybe an old tele-handler years ago. I've driven electric, gas, propane, diesel and hydrogen powered forklifts. All the ones with engines had automatic or hydrostatic transmissions. Just choose forward or reverse and push the accelerator.
Most IC engine forklifts have what’s called an inching control. Some of them have it as a 3rd pedal, others have it as part of single brake pedal.
On an inching control pedal the first part of the travel disengages the auto trans (it just dumps the fluid that goes to the clutch packs.) then the rest of the travel is what applies the brakes.
People will call it a clutch if it has a 3rd pedal, but most forklifts haven’t had a true clutch in decades.
