Advantages of propane forklifts

Are you looking into adding propane forklifts to your business? They offer several advantages.

  1. Propane forklifts keep going and going. The average propane forklift cylinder will power a forklift for around eight hours, which means the forklift can last a full work shift without stopping. And if it does run low on propane, all your workers have to do is take out the empty tank and replace it with a full one, a task that takes maybe five minutes. When electric forklifts are out of power, they’re out of commission for at least eight hours for recharging.
  2. Propane forklifts have more power. With propane, a forklift runs at full power until it’s time to replace the cylinder, contrary to electric forklifts that slowly lose power as they lose juice. Propane forklifts can carry heavier loads and are better able to handle inclines.
  3. Propane forklifts burn clean. The clean-burning nature of propane makes it a low-emission fuel, which means your forklift will need less maintenance and will have a longer life expectancy.
  4. Propane can work in all kinds of weather. When you’re moving materials outdoors, you need a forklift that can run in wet conditions. Most electric forklifts can’t do this, but propane forklifts can.
