Cylinder review. We will ensure that your cylinder inventory is current and we carefully inspect each cylinder before sending it out for delivery.
We offer on-site refills and dispensing stations, too.
ProGas is the Tri-State area’s leader in bulk propane delivery and service. We apply that to helping you set up a forklift cylinder refill site at your business.
It starts with us using your information about your forklift propane needs to design a propane dispensing station so you can refill your forklift cylinders when you need them. We create a personalized and flexible bulk propane delivery schedule.
As with all our commercial propane tank services, your propane dispensing station will be designed and installed to meet all zoning, building, and safety codes and regulations. We also provide training for you and your employees in the safe use of the dispensing station and the filling and handling of your forklift cylinders.
What are the advantages of propane forklifts?
Power for hours. The average propane forklift cylinder provides enough power to last an entire shift—around eight hours’ time. Your workers won’t waste any time when the forklift runs out of propane! They simply swap out the empty tank for a fresh one and resume working in as little as five minutes. Unlike electric forklifts that gradually lose power as they run out of fuel, propane forklifts keep running at full strength until the cylinder needs to be replaced. Additionally, propane forklifts not only carry heavier loads, but they have also been proven to be better on inclines than electric forklifts. All of this helps your work get done more efficiently.
Propane works in all weather. Most electric forklifts can’t operate in wet conditions, but propane models can be used both in wet and dry environments. If you’re moving materials indoors from the outside, or vice-versa, propane forklifts can get the job done safely and easily. Unlike gasoline-powered forklifts, propane forklifts can be used indoors.
Better for your forklifts. Propane is a clean-burning fuel, so it will be less damaging to your forklift engines. Your forklifts will last longer and need fewer repairs with propane as a fuel source. This will help your business save money in the long run. Because of propane’s low emissions, it’s also better than electricity or gasoline forklifts for the environment.
