Upgrade your work environment with our range of diesel forklifts for sale
When it comes to pure power, these vehicles are the preferred option over LPG and electric models. In essence, diesel-powered forklifts have better acceleration and speeds than electric and LPG variations – and that is before you even start to load them up.
When you need heavy work done and hydraulic attachments installed, you’ll notice the difference and improved torque these alternatives provide.
Working on gradients, which is common in outdoor operations, will quickly flatten the battery of an electric model, and put an enormous strain on an LPG-powered one. In comparison, this line of machinery can power through work on hilly surfaces – even while towing.
Best of all, maintenance and servicing costs are lower on second-hand diesel forklifts. This means you get more power and fewer overheads at the same time.
Why should you choose a new or used diesel forklift?
A common misconception is that petrol and diesel options are for outdoor work only, while electric and LPG models are better suited to indoors.
Under Safe Work Australia guidelines, though, they’re safe to use in well-ventilated indoor spaces as well. In fact, these recommendations outline that they’re the superior option in enclosed spaces with poor ventilation (like cold stores or shipping containers). This is because they produce less carbon monoxide than petrol or LPG.
While electric alternatives are the preferred option for enclosed spaces, diesel can be used for those tough jobs, as long as the engine is regularly tuned. It’s also important that proper air monitoring is carried out.
Tip: Exhaust catalysts and purifiers can also reduce the exhaust impact.
