Propane-powered forklifts provide operational options and economic advantages, making them an efficient choice for your material handling needs.
Anytime a forklift isn’t on the move, it costs your company money.
This is why propane forklifts are designed to refuel quickly. It takes less than 5 minutes to switch tanks and refuel a propane forklift.
As an added benefit, propane forklifts can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications.
The reasons for choosing propane forklifts and for converting existing gasoline forklifts are many:
Economical – 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.
Environmentally Friendly – 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.
Safe – 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.
Strong – 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
Low Maintenance – 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.
By using propane-powered mowers your business could be saving money and the environment.
If you run a landscape business, you should know that propane engines run clean without sacrificing performance. Propane mowers deliver approximately 20% savings on fuel costs over gasoline while reducing hydrocarbon emissions by nearly 70%.
Propane is also contained in a sealed, pressure-tight system at all times, and there are no evaporative emissions thus eliminating a significant source of secondary pollution.
Other benefits of propane-powered mowers are:
- Longer run times between refueling
- Easier/cleaner refueling than gasoline mowers.
- Can eliminate fuel theft.
- Will not contaminate soil or water.
