Caterpillar Propane Forklifts

Caterpillar Propane Forklifts

Utilizing both internal combustion (IC) and electric trucks have different disadvantages and advantages.

Electric engines cost less to maintain during their life span since they require a lot less maintenance. The battery must last at least five years if the manufacturer's maintenance and charging guidelines are followed. Expenses for overnight charging are normally low. Electric trucks tend to be very maneuverable and compact units, specially the types with three wheels. Drive, lift, tilt, auxiliary and acceleration speeds are adaptable and could be changed depending on the preferences of the driver and the use. Electric trucks are quiet, and are easier on the environment.

Not suitable to be utilized in wet conditions are electric trucks. Because of the need for battery recharging, they cannot be utilized continuously. They are not suitable on rough terrain. The energy consumption is high on ramp work and continuous high lifts.

Best to be continuously used outdoors and on surfaces which are not even is the advantage of an IC engine diesel/LPG. With no requirement for battery charging, the forklift can be used during the evening and overnight. Supply and transport of fuel needs to be factored into costs. Initial expenses are less than for an electric truck, but long term expenses related to fuel and maintenance are higher. IC engines have bigger capacities than electric, but less adaptability. LPG could be used in some indoor applications. IC Engine diesel/LPG makes higher emissions and more noise than electric. LPG has lower emissions compared to diesel.
