So many Georgia businesses rely on forklifts, such as warehouses, distribution centers, retail stores, farms, manufacturing and more.
And more of those businesses are discovering why propane is the right fuel for those forklifts.
Many Georgia propane dealers provide propane forklift cylinder exchanges. They’ll deliver full cylinders, take the empty ones and always make sure you have enough cylinders to get the job done.
Propane forklifts are more powerful. Propane forklifts run at 100% power as long as there’s propane in the cylinder. As the battery drains, electric forklifts lose power. Propane forklifts also perform better, handling heavier loads and more capable of working on inclines.
Propane forklifts are more cost-effective. It can take up to eight hours for an electric forklift to be recharged. If the battery drains during working hours, you’re out of luck. And you also need to invest space and money in charging stations. Propane forklifts give you longer running time between refuels than any other fuel source. Refueling takes mere minutes: Just swap the empty tank for a full one!
Propane forklifts are safe. As long as safety protocols and regulations are followed, propane is safe to use both indoors and outside.
Propane forklifts go anywhere. Gasoline-powered forklifts can’t be used indoors. Electric forklifts are inefficient outdoors and can’t operate in some conditions. Propane can do it all, indoors or out!
Propane forklifts are more environmentally friendly. Propane forklifts emit dramatically fewer greenhouse gases than gasoline-powered forklifts. There is also no environmental damage done in the rare event of a propane leak, unlike if there is a gasoline leak. About 40% of the nation’s electricity supply is generated by coal-fired power plants, meaning electric forklifts also aren’t as environmentally friendly as propane.
