Caterpillar Propane Forklifts
There are disadvantages and advantages to both electric and internal combustion (IC) trucks.
Electric engines need a lot less maintenance, and hence they cost less to maintain over their lifetime. The battery must last at least five years if the manufacturer's charging and maintenance guidelines are followed. Expenses for overnight charging are usually low. Electric trucks tend to be very maneuverable and compact units, particularly the three-wheel models. Drive, lift, tilt, acceleration and auxiliary speeds are adjustable and could be changed depending on the application and the driver's preferences. Electric trucks are quiet, and are easier on the environment.
Not suitable to be utilized during wet conditions are electric trucks. Due to the need for battery recharging, they cannot be used continuously. 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 can be utilized during the evening and overnight. Transport and supply of fuel should be factored into costs. Initial expenses are less than for an electric truck, but long term costs related to maintenance and fuel are higher. IC engines have larger capacities compared to electric, but less adaptability. LPG could be used in several indoor applications. IC Engine diesel/LPG produces more noise and higher emissions than electric. LPG has lower emissions than diesel.
