Propane Forklifts
Other than the hassle of having to change the propane cylinder, there is little risk connected with running out of fuel with propane forklifts. These units are quite a bit lower in their purchase price than electric and diesel lift trucks. The debate to whether or not the propane emissions are cleaner than diesel emissions continues within the business.

Performance wise, propane lift trucks seem to handle better than the majority of electric units on the market when the job requires high applications and constant duty drive line torque. There are several electric models which are supposed to handle better or equally. Depending on the specific situation, 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 use.

The Disadvantages of LPG Propane Forklifts
Several of the major drawbacks of LPG forklifts are that compared to diesel trucks include: they are not as effective in applications which need high and or constant duty drive line torque. These units have a liability exposure, due to the possibility of a fuel system leak while the truck is located indoors. Additionally, operators must be trained on the safe handling of propane fuel. The rearward visibility off of the counterweight's back end is limited. This is because of the propane tank's location.

The cost of fuel is higher with propane models when compared to the diesel model. Because of the frequency at which the propane tanks are changed, there are possible injuries that may occur. Unless a place has a bulk fill station, propane might need to be changed every six hours of use. Propane forklifts can be harder to start and run smoothly when they are operating in cold temperatures. In remote places, propane fuel is not always readily available. Over the next few decades, the cost of fossil fuels is estimated to climb significantly. Consider and plan for overall repair maintenance expenses, as well as the total cost of ownership to be the highest of the 3 options.

Depending upon what your particular applications are, there is definitely a possibility that the LPG forklift models would be perfect for you. It is best to take into consideration your particular loads and lifting needs as well as the kinds of environments you will be operating in order to be certain that you invest in the right model to meet your needs.
