A Smart Choice
Propane is a great choice for fueling your forklifts, especially when compared to electric powered forklifts. Some of the biggest benefits include:
RefuelingWith propane forklifts, simply replace the empty cylinder with a full one. Refueling can be done in 5 minutes. Electric forklifts require a charged battery, which may pose a problem if there’s a power outage.
PowerWhile providing 8 hours of run time, propane powered forklifts offer uninterrupted high torque power 100% of the time AND operate more quickly at a lower cost than electric power.
SpeedYou won’t sacrifice speed with a propane forklift, which can hit speeds of up to 10.5 mph. Most electric forklifts max out at 8-9 mph.
MaintenancePropane is one of the cleanest-burning fossil fuels, which helps reduce maintenance when used to fuel forklifts. Electric forklifts have the added maintenance of batteries and charging stations.
There are additional benefits when choosing propane forklifts:
• Propane powers over 670,000 forklifts across the U.S., and has been used with forklifts for nearly 70 years.
• Propane forklifts produce 19% fewer emissions than gasoline forklifts and 7% fewer emissions than diesel.
• 70% of propane comes from domestic sources. Using propane for forklifts helps reduce dependency on foreign energy sources and keeps jobs in the U.S.
