There are many fuel types for forklifts but do you know what the advantages of each are?
The type of application you have may determine whether you purchase a diesel, gas (LPG) or battery-electric forklift.
We've summarised the advantages of each fuel type below to help you determine which one will best suit your business.
Diesel-fuelled forklifts are well suited to rugged, outdoor applications. They offer higher ground clearance to negotiate uneven surfaces, more torque and the ability to handle heavier loads.
LPG-powered forklifts are regarded as a safe and clean option. Maintenance costs are reduced as LPG does not contaminate the crankcase oil, prolonging the life of the fluid.
While battery-electric variants are gaining in popularity there is still a place for the traditional diesel and LPG fuel types.
The relative advantages and disadvantages of each fuel type will depend on your particular application, so see a member of our team for more information on the fuel source that will best suit your needs.
