Gas powered forklifts are extremely flexible and can be used both indoors and outdoors, depending on the environment required. The benefits of a gas forklift are that they are quieter and have cleaner emissions than diesel forklifts. This is ideal, especially if they are required for use within an indoor site, as it will help keep the space safer for employees. Used gas forklifts have a high performance and are long-lasting, making them an excellent addition to any size workforce.
Benefits Of A Used Gas Forklift
Using gas rather than petrol enables your forklifts to run on 100% power throughout operation, boosting productivity especially during outdoor operation where higher speeds are allowed. In addition, propane engines can last up to twice as long as their gasoline counterparts saving you money on maintenance.
Gas is also, on average, around 20% cheaper than diesel. Replacing an old diesel forklift with a used gas forklift from PHL can achieve a saving of £5,000 to £16,000 per truck, over a 5 year period.
Cleaner Working Environment
Gas forklifts allow you to run on 100% power throughout operation, boosting productivity especially during outdoor operation where higher speeds are allowed. In addition, used gas forklifts can last up to twice as long as their gasoline counterparts saving you money on maintenance. They are also quieter and produce less offensive fumes than diesel powered forklifts.
Better Power to Weight Ratios
The performance characteristics of gas powered forklift trucks are usually superior to electric and diesel powered equivalents. Travel speeds, rates of acceleration, and lift speeds usually outperform their electric or diesel rivals because of better power to weight ratios and more responsive engines.
