Propane Forklifts: The Right Choice For Business

There’s a multitude of reasons why propane gas-fueled forklifts beat out their electric counterparts—are here are just a few of those!

Efficiency

Using propane forklifts is more efficient for your workers. In fact, refueling a propane forklift takes mere moments. All your employees do is replace the empty cylinder with a full one, and the forklift is back on the job. Gasoline and diesel take longer to refuel, with the added risk of potential spills. If that happens, the cleanup is added hassle and expense.

Also, when an electric forklift runs out of power, it’s out of commission until it recharges. That can take eight hours, or longer! You could be without that forklift for an entire shift, slowing down your overall productivity.

Speaking of recharging, with propane forklifts, you don’t have to give up floor space for and spend money on a recharging station as you do with electric forklifts.

Durability

Propane forklifts are more durable, have more power than electric forklifts on inclines, and can operate outside in rain and snow (both of which we get plenty of here in greater Pittsburgh), which is something an electric forklift cannot do.

Propane forklifts run at 100% power as long as there is propane in the cylinder. Electric forklifts, on the other hand, lose power as the battery is drained. In saying that, propane forklifts are better suited to handle heavier loads than electric forklifts as well, without the risk of lost power at any point during operation.

On average, propane forklifts also require less overall maintenance over their lifespans.

Cleanliness

Another advantage propane forklifts have is 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—one of the main contributing factors in greenhouse gas emissions.
