Manitou Wharehouse Forklift

Lots of corporations these days are trying to be environmentally responsible and set a good example. They desire cleaner products to use in their places of business. To be able to meet these expectations, forklift corporations as well as their suppliers are considering alternative fuel ideas and cleaner burning energy sources.

Technology is currently able to help manufacturers build units that when compare to their internal combustion or IC counterparts use less overall energy, reduce carbon footprints and cost less to operate. These new designs are creating an obvious shift in the forklift market. Lots of manufacturers have since been encouraged to invest more into the development and research of these emerging equipment.

Approximately 60 percent of today's forklift market is represented by electric units. This is up from roughly 45 percent around 20 years ago. More and more businesses and corporations are enjoying lower operating expenses by choosing electric. For example, the cost efficiency alone when it comes to the fuel and maintenance costs save businesses thousands of dollars. The electric models compared to IC units, provide a longer life to the fleet and the reduced emissions in the facility enable much better air quality for those working indoors.

Less Emissions: There is a better overall improvement in operating condition since these units do not emit carcinogens or carbons. This has resulted in better health for all employees working near lift trucks.

Reduced Expenses: Lower operating costs have resulted from less moving parts and the reduction in heat being produced.

Less Fuel Costs: The electric units provide better costs and more stability when correctly maintained and taken care of. The chargers and batteries cost much less compared to Liquid Propane models.

Improved Operator Ergonomics: There is much vibration and heat produced by Internal Combustion or IC Engines. Both of these situations could greatly result in operator exhaustion.
