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 than the electric and diesel model lift truck. The debate to whether or not the propane emissions are cleaner than diesel emissions continues within the business.

The propane forklift performs better than the majority of electric models on the market these days on jobs which require high applications and constant duty drive line torque. There are some electric units which are reputed to handle better or equally. Depending on the particular circumstances, propane lifts might or might not be acceptable for handling eligible goods and food. So long as WorkSafeBC criteria are met, propane forklifts are acceptable for the majority of indoor applications.

The Disadvantages of LPG Propane Forklifts
Several of the key disadvantages 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 units have a liability exposure, because of the possibility of a fuel system leak whilst the truck is situated indoors. Additionally, operators should be trained on the safe use of propane fuel. The rearward visibility off of the back end of the counterweight is limited. This is because of the propane tank's location.

Compared to electric and diesel units, fuel cost is higher with propane units. There are possible injury claims due to the frequency and weight which propane tanks are changed; about every 6 hours of usage unless the place has a bulk fill station located there. Propane lift trucks can be harder to start and run smoothly when they are used in freezing temperatures. In remote places, propane fuel is not always readily available. In the next few decades, the cost of fossil fuels is estimated to rise dramatically. Consider and plan for overall repair maintenance costs, as well as the entire cost of ownership to be the highest of the 3 options.

There is a real possibility that the LPG forklift units will be ideal for you, but will ultimately depend on what your requirements are. It is best to take into consideration your particular lifting needs and loads as well as the types of environments you will be utilizing the equipment in an effort to be certain that you purchase the best unit to meet your requirements.
