Propane Forklifts
Other than the inconvenience of having to change the propane cylinder, there are some risks connected with running out of fuel with propane forklifts. These units are rather 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 in the industry.

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

The Drawbacks of LPG Propane Forklifts
Some of the major drawbacks of LPG forklifts are that compared to diesel trucks comprise: 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 located indoors. In addition, 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 location of the propane tank.

Compared to diesel and electric units, cost of fuel is higher with propane models. There are possible injury claims because of the weight and frequency which propane tanks are changed; about every 6 hours of usage unless the place has a bulk fill station situated there. Propane lift trucks could be more difficult to start and run smoothly when they are used in freezing temperatures. In remote places, propane fuel is not always available at once. Over the next few decades, the cost of fossil fuels is estimated to rise dramatically. Take into account and plan for overall expense or repair and maintenance, as well as the entire cost of ownership to be the highest of the 3 options.

There is a real possibility that the LPG lift truck units would be ideal for you, but would ultimately depend upon what your requirements are. It is better to consider your particular lifting needs and loads along with the types of environments you will be utilizing the machine in an effort to be sure that you invest in the best unit which would suit all your requirements.
