Propane-powered forklifts can be used safely indoors or outdoors, because they operate so cleanly. Take upstream emissions into account — from the generation of electricity — and propane forklifts beat electric models as well.
Propane forklifts don't lose power like electric models, and only require a quick and easy cylinder change to get back to work. Electric models take hours to recharge.
Propane is an ideal fuel for material handling; it's the first choice of fuel for warehouses of all kinds across the country.
With more than 70 percent of propane production coming from domestic natural gas, the U.S. produces enough of its own propane to exceed customer demand.
