Great performance and great service!
If you work in an industry that uses forklifts to move materials around, you may have seen propane forklifts and wondered if they would be a good investment for your business instead of electric or gasoline counterparts.
The answer is an emphatic yes!
Propane Forklift Advantages
Propane forklifts offer several advantages that electric or gasoline forklifts just can’t provide:
Better power. Propane forklifts run at 100% power as long as there’s propane in the cylinder. As the battery drains, electric forklifts become less and less powerful. Propane forklifts also perform better, handling heavier loads and are more capable of working at peak efficiency on inclines.
Cost-effectiveness. With electric forklifts, you have to invest money and space into charging stations. And that brings us to refueling: It can take up to eight hours for an electric forklift to be recharged. If the batter drains during working hours, you’re out of luck. With propane forklifts, you get longer running time between refuels than any other fuel source. And when it’s time to refuel, just swap the empty tank for a full one and in minutes, your propane forklift is back on the job!
Safety. As long as safety protocols and regulations are followed, propane is safe to use both indoors and outside.
Versatility. Gasoline-powered forklifts can’t be used indoors. Electric forklifts are inefficient outdoors and can’t operate in some conditions. Propane can do it all, whether indoors or out!
Environmental friendliness. Propane forklifts emit about 20% fewer greenhouse gases than forklifts run on gasoline. And electric forklifts get their power from electricity usually generated by coal-fired power plants.
