Become A Power Lifter

Propane is a leader in the materials handling market because it offers a number of key advantages over other fuels.

Lower Emissions

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.

Greater Productivity

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.

Proven Performance

Propane is an ideal fuel for material handling; it's the first choice of fuel for warehouses of all kinds across the country.

Abundant Supply

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.
