Propane is a non-toxic, Clean-burning fuel that can be used to safely power forklifts both indoors and outdoors. With propane, there is no spillage, loss or evaporation into the atmosphere.
Propane forklift tanks, fuel lines and carburetion components meet or exceed strict specifications. Built-in safety devices automatically shut off the flow of fuel in case of an accident.
Propane forklifts can be used in indoor and outdoor applications. Propane is the most portable fuel — cylinders can be stored and moved virtually anywhere within a work site.
Propane forklifts maintain consistent, 100-percent power throughout operation. They have the ability to push and pull heavy loads at full capacity, up and down inclines, for a longer amount of time, and with better ground speeds than electric forklifts. Easy Refueling Propane forklifts require very little re-fueling time compared to natural gas-powered and electric forklifts.
From an investment standpoint, propane forklifts offer an economical way to meet material handling needs. Propane forklifts have lower life-cycle costs than electric, diesel or gasoline-powered forklifts.
Propane produces fewer engine deposits than gasoline and diesel fuel, resulting in lower maintenance costs. Propane engines can typically last up to twice as long as gasoline engines. The reasons for choosing propane forklifts and for converting existing gasoline forklifts to operate on propane are plentiful.
