Nissan Propane Forklifts

Nissan Propane Forklifts

There are 2 main forklift fuel types and varieties which are mostly utilized in the marketplace: electric forklifts and internal combustion or IC forklifts.

Usually, electric forklifts are used away from the elements within indoor applications. These models are easier to operate in a tight warehouse area. They are much quieter to use and make no emissions that need to be collected or vented.

However, IC forklifts are great in outdoor operations and are frequently used in construction zones and external loading docks. These units come with a lower upfront cost. In addition, IC forklifts are faster to refuel compared to the electric models, as these require several hours of recharging time for their internal batteries.

If you have decided to pick the IC route, the next decision you will face is what kind of fuel do you want to use to power your machinery? There are several newer hybrid units offered on the market, but the most popular fuel types are propane, diesel or gasoline forklifts.

When in the decision process to find the best forklift for your business, examining the pros and cons of every type of equipment is a good idea. Like for instance, will a propane lift be right for your specific company or application? Make time to read on in order to know more.

One of the best advantages propane forklifts have to provide is their immense flexibility. They are the easiest and fastest units to refill which is a huge thing to take into account because it significantly lessens downtime on your warehouse floor. For instance, diesel forklifts require an on-site storage tank and pump system and electric lifts need hours to recharge. Conversely, propane cylinders are fairly quick to swap out and need no lift or crane to handle them.

The ongoing costs of a propane forklift may be its biggest drawback. The repair expenses and regular maintenance would be more frequent with these units as compared to diesel or gasoline lift trucks. In addition, fuel costs are usually higher on propane models as composed to gas or diesel. It is very essential to consider the fact that fuel costs could greatly vary from place to place.
