Caterpillar Propane Forklifts
There are disadvantages and advantages to both internal combustion (IC) and electric trucks.
Electric engines need much less maintenance, and thus they cost less to maintain during their lifetime. The battery should last five years minimum if the manufacturer's charging and maintenance guidelines are followed. Costs for overnight charging are normally low. Electric trucks tend to be highly maneuverable and compact units, particularly the three-wheel models. Drive, tilt, lift, auxiliary and acceleration speeds are adaptable and can be changed depending on the use and the driver's preferences. Electric trucks are easier on the environment and are quiet.
Electric trucks are not suitable for use during wet conditions. Due to the need for battery recharging, they cannot be continuously used. They are not suited to rough terrain. The energy consumption is high on continuous high lifts and ramp work.
Best to be continuously utilized outdoors and on surfaces which are not even is the advantage of an IC engine diesel/LPG. With no requirement for battery charging, the forklift could be used during the evening and overnight. Supply and transport of fuel has to be factored into costs. Initial costs are less than for an electric truck, but long term expenses connected to fuel and maintenance are higher. IC engines have larger 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 compared to electric. LPG has lower emissions than diesel.
