Propane Forklifts
Besides the inconvenience of having to change the propane cylinder, there is little risk connected with running out of fuel with propane forklifts. These units are rather a bit lower in their cost than electric and diesel lift trucks. The discussion to whether or not the propane emissions are cleaner than diesel emissions continues in the business.

The propane forklift performs better compared to the majority of electric models available on the market nowadays on tasks that need high applications and constant duty drive line torque. There are some electric units which are supposed to handle better or equally. Depending on the specific circumstances, propane lifts may or may not be acceptable for handling eligible goods and food. Provided that WorkSafeBC criteria are met, propane lift trucks are acceptable for most indoor applications.

The Drawbacks of LPG Propane Forklifts
Some of the key drawbacks of LPG lift trucks are that compared to diesel trucks include: they are not as effective in applications that need high and or constant duty drive line torque. These models have a liability exposure, due to the possibility of a fuel system leak while the truck is situated indoors. In addition, operators must be trained on the safe handling of propane fuel. The rearward visibility off of the back end of the counterweight is limited. This is due to the propane tank's location.

The fuel cost is higher with propane units when compared to the diesel unit. Because of the frequency at which the propane tanks are changed, there are possible injuries that might occur. Unless a site has a bulk fill station, propane might need to be changed every six hours of use. Propane forklifts can be trickier to start and run smoothly when they are operating in freezing temperatures. In remote places, propane fuel is not always available at once. Over the next few decades, the cost of fossil fuels is projected to rise significantly. Consider and plan for overall expense or repair and maintenance, as well as the entire cost of ownership to be the highest of the 3 alternatives.

Depending on what your particular applications are, there is certainly a possibility that the LPG forklift units will be ideal for you. It is better to consider your particular lifting requirements and loads as well as the types of environments you would be utilizing the equipment in an effort to be certain that you buy the right unit that will suit your needs.
