Electric vs. Propane Forklifts

Learn about all of the advantages propane forklifts have over those powered by electricity!

If you go to many businesses around El Paso County and Hudspeth County, you’ll see a wide range of businesses in which forklifts play an essential role, including:

Every one of these kinds of businesses will benefit from using propane forklifts instead of electricity. Propane-powered forklifts are better for efficiency, productivity, cost-effectiveness and more. And with propane forklift services from Hiper Gas, your business can enjoy all those benefits along with the expert service from our commercial propane experts.

Propane forklifts can be used all day

Propane forklifts keep on running. A propane cylinder for forklifts can keep a forklift operating for around eight hours, enough to perform a full shift of labor. When your forklift runs out of propane, the forklift operator simply exchanges the empty tank for a fresh one in around five minutes and gets back to work with minimal downtime. When electric forklifts run out of power, they are out of service for up to eight hours (or longer!) while they recharge.

Propane forklifts are more powerful than electric forklifts

Propane forklifts continue to operate at full power for as long as the cylinder has propane in it. An electric forklift gradually loses power as its battery is drained. Propane models can also carry heavier loads and are proven to be better on inclines than electric forklifts.

Propane forklifts can be used both indoors and out

In wet situations, electric forklifts are ineffective at best or can’t be used at all. Propane can function in both wet and dry conditions. Forklifts that are powered by propane can be used to transport materials safely and quickly from indoors to outdoors and vice versa.

Propane’s clean burning offers many advantages

Because of how cleanly it burns, propane is named an alternative fuel in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the 1992 National Energy Policy. That clean burning reduces wear on your forklifts’ engines. As a result, your forklifts will run more smoothly, require less maintenance and last longer than forklifts powered by other fuels. About half of the country’s electricity supply comes from coal-fired power plants, meaning that propane is a more environmentally friendly choice.
