Propane forklifts are integral workhorses for so many businesses and industries here in Texas and New Mexico—and there are MANY reasons that propane is the fuel of choice for those same businesses that use forklifts!
It’s true! Propane-powered forklifts burn their fuel far cleaner—so they can be used both indoors and out—and on average need less maintenance over their lifespan.
Speaking of reduced downtime for repairs and maintenance, refueling a propane forklift takes merely a matter of moments. Simply replace the empty cylinder with a full one, and the forklift is back on the job. Gasoline and diesel-powered counterparts not only take longer, but there is the risk of a spill. And when an electric forklift is out of power, it’s out of commission until it fully recharges. That can take eight hours or longer in some instances. Who has that kind of time to waste?
Propane forklifts are also noted to be more durable and have more power output than electric forklifts on inclines. They also can operate outside in rain and even those troublesome snowy conditions like we saw this past winter. That’s something an electric forklift just can’t match.
