LPG/Diesel Forklifts

Diesel powered forklifts are ideal for outdoor use as they produce exhaust fumes and noise. They are normally more fuel efficient than LPG powered engines. The higher torque produced by a diesel engine makes them better on gradients and for towing duties. If hydraulic attachments are required, such as rotating clamps, hydraulic fork spreaders, forward tipplers, etc... diesels are better suited as there is no shortage of battery capacity.

LPG forklifts are the most competitively priced, and are the most convenient for 'round the clock' work. LPG trucks are quieter in use than diesel trucks, and produce less fumes than diesel trucks. Travel speeds, rates of acceleration and lift speeds usually outperform their electric and diesel rivals because of better power to weight ratios and more responsive engines.
