Here are the 8 Reasons why most businesses buy Electric Forkflits

Reduce Fuel Costs

Cost of electricity can be significantly lower than that of fuel. Up to 80% lower. Electric forklifts also charge at a charging station or outlet, so there is no need for fuel storage on site.

Maximize efficiency with LiBs

New lithium-ion batteries run longer, recharge faster, and require less recharging overall. The cold storage industry is the most common user of LiBs because of lithium’s ability to perform in a wide range of temperatures and environments. But it’s really ready to use in any type of application that operates equipment more than 1 shift a day.

Less Noise

Electric forklifts are Quieter than propane trucks, they Increase Safety and Efficiency, and there are no operation noises except for the back-up alarm.

Lower Emissions

Improve Employee Health, less harm to products, and operate at zero emissions. Since Electric forklifts produce zero emissions during operation, it is the #1 choice for the consumer-driven food and beverage industry. Because the electric lift can safely maneuver narrow aisles, handle heavy loads at high heights, and perform well with zero emissions, regardless of warehouse temperatures.

Lower Operating Cost

Electrics require about 40% less maintenance, your total cost of ownership is less than propane. Electric forklifts do not require engine oil or coolant fluids, so servicing and replacing/disposing of these fluids is also not necessary. Which results in Longer maintenance intervals for the forklift, saving you time and money.

Wide Range of Options

Electric forklifts are more maneuverable and have better visibility. They are powerful and come in a variety of models that can do the same job as an IC Forklift in a similar environment. Learn more from our Toyota Forklift Showroom to Choose from the following: (see image below)
