Internal Combustion vs Electric Forklifts
Internal Combustion forklifts run either on LPG or diesel and therefore produce emissions making them suitable for well-ventilated environments. Electric forklifts, on the other hand, produce no emissions making them ideal for environments where air and noise pollution needs to be kept to a minimum. Although electric forklifts can be used outdoors, they might need additional weatherproofing if they will be subjected to heavy rain.
Because of the need to be charged, watered and cleaned, a battery-powered forklift may experience longer downtime that an LPG or diesel powered truck which just needs to be refuelled before it can continue to be used. Electric trucks do however have less moving parts to maintain and repair than internal combustion forklifts.
