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 lift truck. These models tend to be less expensive to run compared to the electric and diesel unit lift truck. The discussion to whether or not the propane emissions are cleaner than diesel emissions continues in the business.

When it comes to performance, propane lift trucks seem to handle better compared to the majority of electric units on the market when the job requires high applications and constant duty drive line torque. There are some electric models which are supposed to handle better or equally. Depending on the particular circumstances, propane lifts may or may not be acceptable for handling food and edible goods. As long as WorkSafeBC criteria are met, propane forklifts are suitable for the majority of indoor applications.

The Disadvantages of LPG Propane Forklifts
Some of the major disadvantages of LPG lift trucks are that compared to diesel trucks comprise: they are not as effective in applications which require high and or constant duty drive line torque. These models have a liability exposure, due to the possibility of a fuel system leak while the truck is situated indoors. Additionally, operators should be trained on the safe handling of propane fuel. The rearward visibility off of the back end of the counterweight is restricted. This is due to the location of the propane tank.

In comparison to electric and diesel models, cost of fuel is higher with propane units. There are possible injury claims because of the frequency and weight which propane tanks are changed; approximately every 6 hours of usage unless the place has a bulk fill station situated there. Propane lift trucks could be harder to start and run smoothly when they are operating in freezing temperatures. In remote places, propane fuel is not always readily available. Over the next few decades, the cost of fossil fuels is projected to rise significantly. 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 lift truck models would be perfect for you, but will ultimately depend on what your requirements are. It is better to consider your particular lifting needs and loads as well as the types of environments you will be utilizing the machine in order to be certain that you purchase the best model to meet your requirements.
