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 units tend to be cheaper to utilize compared to the electric and diesel unit forklift. The debate to whether or not the propane emissions are cleaner compared to diesel emissions continues within the industry.

Performance wise, propane forklifts seem to handle better compared to most electric models on the market when the job requires constant duty drive line torque and high applications. There are some electric units which are reputed to handle equally or better. Depending on the particular situation, propane lifts might or might not be suitable for handling food and edible goods. Provided that WorkSafeBC criteria are met, propane lift trucks are suitable for the majority of indoor applications.

The Drawbacks of LPG Propane Forklifts
Some of the major drawbacks of LPG lift trucks are that compared to diesel trucks include: they are not as effective in applications which need high and or constant duty drive line torque. These models have a liability exposure, due to the possibility of a fuel system leak whilst the truck is located indoors. Moreover, operators must 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.

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 that propane tanks are changed; roughly every 6 hours of usage unless the site has a bulk fill station located there. Propane forklifts could be harder to start and run smoothly when they are operating in freezing temperatures. In remote locations, propane fuel is not always readily available. In 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 total cost of ownership to be the highest of the 3 options.

Depending on what your particular applications are, there is certainly a possibility that the LPG forklift units will be perfect for you. It is best to take into consideration your specific lifting requirements and loads along with the types of environments you would be utilizing the equipment in an effort to be certain that you invest in the best model to meet all your needs.
