Thank you for your patience.
Forklifts are critical in many industries, from material handling on shipping docks to shuffling pallets around grocery stores. Whatever your business, if investing in a new lift truck is on the horizon, consider how well electrically powered units stack up against traditional internal combustion (IC) machines.
Advances in motors, batteries and charging technology have allowed electric lift trucks to capture a larger share of the market over the last decade, and that trend is likely to continue. Modern electric forklifts are gradually replacing even some of their more powerful IC competitors.
Switching to electric forklifts can bring a number of benefits to your business:
Although electric forklifts have significant advantages, you must decide whether they're the best choice for your business. IC units cost less upfront, but the extra fuel and maintenance can cost you more over time. Electric units, however, require OSHA-compliant charging stations and large batteries that must be regularly cleaned and charged.
Charge batteries at night to avoid adding to peak demand charges. A 24/7 operation may require additional batteries on-site to prevent downtime. Finally, the electrical capacity of your facility must meet the voltage and amperage requirements of the charging station.
Work carefully with your supplier to make sure electric units are the right fit for your application.
