Propane – powered forklifts provide operational options and economic advantages, making them a clear choice for your material handling needs
Anytime a forklift isn’t on the move, it costs your company money. This is why propane forklifts are designed to refuel quickly. It takes less than 5 minutes to switch tanks and refuel a propane forklift. Also, propane forklifts can be used in indoor and outdoor applications.
The reasons for choosing propane forklifts and for converting existing gasoline forklifts are many :
Economical – From an investment standpoint, propane forklifts offer an economical way to meet material handling needs. Propane forklifts have lower life-cycle costs than electric, diesel or gasoline-powered forklifts.
Environmentally Friendly – Propane is a non-toxic, clean-burning fuel that can be used to safely power forklifts both indoors and outdoors. With propane, there is no spillage loss or evaporation into the atmosphere.
Safe – Propane forklift tanks, fuel lines and carburetion components meet or exceed strict specifications. Built-in safety devices automatically shut off the flow of fuel in case of an accident.
Strong – Propane forklifts maintain consistent, 100-percent power throughout operation. They have the ability to push and pull heavy loads at full capacity, up and down inclines, for a longer amount of time, and with better ground speeds than electric forklifts
Low Maintenance – Propane produces fewer engine deposits than gasoline and diesel fuel, resulting in lower maintenance costs. Propane engines can typically last up to twice as long as gasoline engines.
