There are more than 670,000 propane-fueled forklifts in factories and warehouses nationwide, making this the largest segment of propane-fueled vehicles in the United States. Propane-powered forklifts are so popular because of the reduced emissions and operational advantages that these off-road vehicles offer.
Propane forklifts provide the following benefits:
- Produce 19% fewer emissions than gasoline forklifts and 7% fewer emissions than diesel forklifts
- Maintain consistent power for the duration of use
- Achieve faster ground speeds than electric forklifts
- Require shorter refueling time than electric forklifts — it takes less time to fill a propane tank than to switch or charge a battery
