Whether you’re purchasing office supplies or making equipment upgrades, you have to keep one eye on the bottom line and the other on maintaining the quality and service your customers expect. If you rely on forklifts in your business, such as warehouse management, construction, or manufacturing, you may be considering your options when it comes to power, efficiency and fuel costs. For extra-heavy-duty jobs and rugged outdoor terrain, diesel-run equipment makes sense. But for most other work, you need to compare propane-powered forklifts with electric. Both options offer a cleaner-burning alternative to diesel-powered equipment. While the price of propane and electricity can fluctuate with the market and demand, the rising cost of electricity is leveling the field compared to propane.
Depending on how and where you operate forklifts—and what other equipment you use, there are distinct benefits to propane-fueled forklifts.
Here’s our guide to the pros and cons of propane-powered forklifts vs electric forklifts.
