Electric vs. Internal Combustion
If you are looking for something that has the initial savings of upfront cost then go with IC, however keep into considerations of using indoor (emissions) with a higher maintenance and fuel cost over your counter electric forklifts.
Electric Forklifts have many advantages such as:
* Produce zero emissions
* Reduced maintenance cost
* Longer economic life
* Lower noise levels
* Lower fueling cost
* Aisle width requirements are less than an IC lift truck
It's not just in our industry that we are converting to electric it's the wave of the future in industries throughout the world to stop carbon footprints and to protect us from emissions.
