Hyundai Propane Forklifts

Basic Types of Fuels Used for Forklifts
Forklifts, also known as powered lift trucks, are used to do many tasks in construction, distribution and industrial environments. These heavy-duty equipment are designed to be dependable and tough so they are capable of moving heavy things in all different types of environments and conditions. Forklifts are powered by various types of fuels and hence can adapt to a lot of different work environments.

The electric models produce no emissions and quiet and reliable. These units are powered by industrial-strength large batteries which are made to be able to be successfully recharged roughly one thousand five hundred times during their functional lifespan. As electric forklifts create no exhaust fumes, it is usually the machine of necessity and choice in places that have limited ventilation. These forklifts need a charging place anywhere on the premises that is equipped with an emergency acid spill kit and eyewash station due to the batteries. For safety reasons, the charging section should be ventilated well.

Liquid propane is a common source of power for the modern forklift. Propane offers various benefits over diesel and electric models. For instance, propane usually costs less than electricity. When recharging the battery, there is no need to remove the lift truck from service.

Moreover, compared to diesel powered models, propane units provide a much cleaner operation. In most instances, a propane forklift is refueled by simply changing out the propane tank which is empty with a new one that is full. Usually, an off-site supplier would re-fill the tanks. This guarantees an easy, safe and fast re-fueling process.

Gasoline and Diesel
Since forklifts which utilize gasoline or diesel produce smelly exhaust, they need more maintenance. They have fairly high fuel costs too. Because they have a much longer and useful lifespan, they are quite dependable compared to electric or propane models. Re-fueling requires a fuel supply on site which conforms to strict health and safety codes. Diesel and gas models are mostly used in outdoor applications on rough terrain, like for example in lumber yard environments or on construction sites.
