Previously, we have written about the different types of powering your counterbalance forklift trucks. Today, we’d like to focus on engine powered forklifts and the different fuel types available.
The Toyota powered forklift can be fuelled by either diesel or liquid petroleum gas (LPG). The choice of fuel for your forklift can be influenced by many different factors including the operating environment, operating time and the distance travelled during your application. Here are some things you should consider.
Your application – As we’ve previously mentioned, the truck fits the application and not the other way round. You may work primarily indoors and think that an LPG forklifts low exhaust emissions are more suitable or you do long runs along a yard with an uneven surface and need a diesel. However, things are not always that simple and this is why our team of sales experts are here to provide you with advice that can help.
Cost – There are many costs to consider whether you’re purchasing or leasing a forklift truck. You’ve got the cost of the truck itself, service costs and even the cost of the fuel itself. Each member of the Groundwater team is equipped with the knowledge to provide you with the most efficient, safe and cost effective solution for your operation.
Here at Groundwater Lift Trucks Ltd, we understand that the decision to invest in a forklift is a big one and we want to ensure you make the right choice. This is why we would recommend that you have a free site survey conducted by a member of our team to fully understand your operation. Then you can organise a free demonstration or truck trial to see if the forklift you have chosen is suitable for your application.
