The benefits of propane forklifts

Forklifts powered by propane have a lot of advantages over gas or electric forklifts, including:

  • Power. Propane forklifts run at 100% power until the propane cylinder is empty. Electric forklifts lose power as the battery drains. Propane forklifts offer better performance than electric forklifts, as they can handle heavier loads and are better on inclines.
  • Efficiency. When an electric forklift’s battery is drained, it can take up to eight hours to be recharged, leaving you without that forklift for up to a full shift. Charging stations take up space and cost a lot of money. Propane forklifts give you longer running time between refuels than any other fuel source. When you do need refueling, it takes just a few minutes to replace the empty cylinder with a full one and the forklift is back on the job.
  • Safety. When safety protocols and regulations are followed, propane forklifts are 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, like when it’s wet. Propane can do it all, indoors or out!
  • Environmental friendliness. Propane-powered forklifts emit much fewer greenhouse gases than gasoline-powered forklifts. There is also no environmental damage done in the rare event of a propane leak, something gasoline forklifts don’t offer. Electricity isn’t eco-friendly, as about 40% of the nation’s electricity supply is generated by coal-fired power plants.
