Caterpillar Propane Forklifts
There are advantages and disadvantages to both internal combustion (IC) and electric trucks.
Electric engines cost less to maintain during their lifetime since they require less maintenance. The battery must last at least five years if the guidelines of the manufacturer for maintenance and charging are followed. Overnight charging costs are generally low. Electric trucks tend to be highly maneuverable and compact units, particularly the kinds with three wheels. Drive, tilt, lift, auxiliary and acceleration speeds are adaptable and can be changed depending on the preferences of the driver and the use. Electric trucks are easier on the natural environment and are not noisy.
Electric trucks are not best to use in wet conditions. Due to the need for battery recharging, they cannot be constantly utilized. They are not suitable on rough terrain. The energy consumption is high on continuous high lifts and ramp work.
IC engine diesel/LPG has the advantage of being suitable for continuous outdoor application and uneven surfaces. With no requirement for battery charging, the forklift could be used throughout the evening and overnight. Supply and transport of fuel needs to be factored into costs. Initial costs are less than for an electric truck, but long term costs related to fuel and maintenance are higher. IC engines have bigger capacities than electric, but less adaptability. LPG could be utilized in several indoor applications. IC Engine diesel/LPG makes more noise and higher emissions than electric. LPG has lower emissions than diesel.
