Why Are Propane Forklifts Superior

Propane forklifts burn cleaner, so they can be used both indoors and out. They need less maintenance than forklifts powered by electricity or gasoline, so there’s less downtime.

Propane forklifts are more efficient for your workers. Refueling a propane forklift takes only a few minutes. Your employees simply replace the empty cylinder with a full one, and that’s all! They and the forklift are back on the job. Refueling gasoline and diesel forklifts take longer to refuel and there is the risk of a spill. The cleanup is added hassle and expense and leads to more lost work time. When the battery of an electric forklift is drained, that forklift cannot be used until it recharges. Recharging can take eight hours, or even longer. Your workers could be without that forklift for an entire shift, slowing down productivity.

Propane forklifts don’t require you to set aside floor space for and spend money on a recharging station as you need to do with electric forklifts.

Propane forklifts are more durable and have more power than electric forklifts on inclines. They can also operate outside in rain and snow, which an electric forklift cannot.

As long as there’s propane in the cylinder, propane forklifts run at 100% power. Electric forklifts, on the other hand, lose power as the battery is drained. Propane forklifts can handle heavier loads than electric forklifts.

Propane forklifts are more environmentally friendly than gasoline or electric forklifts. Propane forklifts emit about 20% fewer greenhouse gases than forklifts run on gasoline. Electric forklifts get their power from electricity that is usually generated by coal-fired power plants.
