Caterpillar Propane Forklifts

Caterpillar Propane Forklifts

There are disadvantages and advantages to utilizing both internal combustion (IC) and electric trucks.

Electric engines need much less maintenance, and thus they cost less to maintain during their life span. The battery must last at least five years if the manufacturer's maintenance and charging guidelines are followed. Overnight charging costs are usually low. Electric trucks tend to be highly maneuverable and compact units, particularly the three-wheel models. Drive, tilt, lift, acceleration and auxiliary speeds are adjustable and can be changed depending on the application and the driver's preferences. Electric trucks are easier on the natural environment and are quiet.

Not best to be utilized during wet conditions are electric trucks. Due to the need for battery recharging, they cannot be utilized continuously. They are not suited to rough terrain. The energy consumption is high on continuous high lifts and ramp work.

IC engine diesel/LPG has the advantage of being suitable for continuous outdoor application and uneven surfaces. With no requirement for battery charging, the forklift could be used throughout the evening and overnight. Transport and supply of fuel must be factored into expenses. Initial expenses are less than for an electric truck, but long term expenses connected to maintenance and fuel are higher. IC engines have bigger capacities compared to electric, but less adaptability. LPG could be used in some indoor applications. IC Engine diesel/LPG produces higher emissions and more noise than electric. LPG has lower emissions than diesel.
