Electric Forklift Trucks
Lets talk about the advantages of Electric forklift trucks.
SOME ADVANTAGES OF ELECTRIC FORKLIFTS
There is little to no performance difference compared with combustion engine forklifts and gas and there are some great savings to be made with an electric forklift.
The initial outlay to purchase an electric forklift is higher as the battery and charge are often purchased at the same time increasing the first time purchase cost, however running the Forklift on electric reduces running costs, all you need to do is pay the electricity bill and top up with water occasionally.
Ideal for small warehouses
Ideal for tight warehouse spaces. Now we have an electric motor and not an engine the chassis / body of the forklift is smaller making electric forklifts ideal for those tight spaces / small warehouse aisles.
With fewer components future parts and servicing are generally cheaper. You will also find that servicing is less frequent reducing long term costs.
Less noise in the workplace is a real bonus, this increases safety with communication made much easier within the warehouse and a happier workforce. Zero emissions are a big factor. If your forklifts need to be inside a warehouses where people are working then diesel forklifts are a no go. Also electric forklifts are a necessity when working around in food warehouses.
