Propane Forklifts
One inconvenience of propane tanks is to have to change, however there is little risk to running out of fuel on a propane forklift. These units tend to be less expensive to run compared to the electric and diesel model lift truck. The debate to whether or not the propane emissions are cleaner than diesel emissions continues in the business.

Performance wise, propane lift trucks seem to handle better compared to most electric units on the market when the job needs constant duty drive line torque and high applications. There are some electric units which are reputed to handle equally or better. Depending on the specific circumstances, propane lifts might or might not be suitable for handling eligible goods and food. Provided that WorkSafeBC criteria are met, propane lift trucks are acceptable for most indoor applications.

The Disadvantages of LPG Propane Forklifts
The LPG's key drawbacks when compare to the diesel lift truck includes the fact that they are not as effective when performing jobs that require high and or constant duty drive line torque. These units have a liability exposure, due to the possibility of a fuel system leak whilst the truck is situated indoors. Additionally, operators should 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.

In comparison to electric and diesel units, fuel cost is higher with propane units. There are possible injury claims because of the frequency and weight that propane tanks are changed; around every 6 hours of usage unless the site has a bulk fill station located there. Propane forklifts can be harder to start and run smoothly when they are utilized in freezing temperatures. In remote locations, propane fuel is not always available at once. In the next few decades, the fossil fuel cost is projected to rise significantly. Consider and plan for overall repair maintenance expenses, as well as the entire cost of ownership to be the highest of the 3 options.

Depending upon what your particular applications are, there is certainly a possibility that the LPG forklift units would be perfect for you. It is best to take into consideration your particular lifting needs and loads as well as the types of environments you would be operating to be able to be sure that you invest in the right model that would meet your requirements.
