Manitou Wharehouse Forklift

Manitou Wharehouse Forklift

Nowadays many companies are trying to be as environmentally responsible as possible. There are demanding cleaner products to utilize in their place of business. In order to meet all these expectations, lift truck companies as well as their suppliers are considering cleaner burning energy sources and alternative fuel ideas.

Amongst the main surprises is that technology is allowing manufactures to build units that use less energy overall, reduce carbon footprints, cost less to operate and provide as much power as compared to their internal combustion or IC counterparts. These new designs are creating an obvious shift in the forklift market. Lots of manufacturers have since been encouraged to invest more into the development and research of these emerging machinery.

Around 60 percent of today's lift truck market is represented by electric units. This is up from about 45% approximately 20 years ago. More and more companies and businesses are enjoying lower operating costs by choosing electric. For instance, the cost efficiency alone in regards to the maintenance and fuel costs save companies thousands of dollars. The electric models compared to IC units, provide a longer life to the fleet and the reduced emissions in the facility enable much better air quality for those working inside.

Reduced Emissions: There is a better overall improvement in operating condition as these models do not emit carcinogens or carbons. This has resulted in better health for all employees working near forklifts.

Reduced Costs: The fewer moving parts and less heat translate to less overall operating expenses.

Reduced Fuel Expenses: The electric models provide better costs and more stability when properly taken care of and maintained. The batteries and chargers cost much less than Liquid Propane models.

Improved Operator Ergonomics: IC or internal combustion engines not only produce emissions but also give off much vibration and heat. Both of these situations could really lead to operator exhaustion.
