Caterpillar Propane Forklifts

Caterpillar Propane Forklifts

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

Electric engines need much less maintenance, and therefore they cost less to maintain during their life span. The battery must last five years minimum if the guidelines of the manufacturer for charging and maintenance are followed. Costs for overnight charging are usually low. Electric trucks tend to be compact units and highly maneuverable, specially the kinds with three wheels. Drive, lift, tilt, acceleration and auxiliary speeds are adaptable and can be changed depending on the application and the preferences of the driver. Electric trucks are quiet, and are easier on the natural environment.

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

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