The benefits of an electric forklift are many, and worth your consideration if you are shopping for a new or used electric lift.

An electric forklift is a lift truck powered by an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. They are productive, durable, energy-efficient and tough. As you review the benefits of an electric forklift, you will see that like any other forklift, the electric type is used to lift and transport materials short distances.

Electric forklifts typically use two power-operated forks. Forks can be raised and lowered for loading/unloading and transporting materials.

Electric Forklifts are Energy Efficient and Eco-Friendly

By buying an electric forklift you’ll instantly start going green. Electric lifts are sleek, economical and most importantly energy efficient. They provide environmentally friendly operation with zero emissions.

Electric Forklifts Can Be Used Indoors and Outdoors

Another benefit of an electric forklift is they can be used in any environment. Electric lifts can generate as much torque as gas-fed lifts, allowing them to get the job done in a heavy lifting situation as well.

Electric Forklifts Can Save You Money

Whether you buy a used or new electric lift, they save you money. There is less cost of maintenance with an electric forklift. Your gas bill will be smaller too because electric forklifts do not require fuel. Electric forklifts require fewer parts and many of these parts are renewable, which also save money.

Electric Forklifts Have Fewer Parts to Replace

These lift trucks do not get their power from combustion, therefore they do not need many of the parts that are required in traditional lifts. Electric forklifts do not need these things that rely on energy, resources, and fuel: Spark plugs, belts, oil, pistons or catalytic converters. Over time these products will require replacement. Electric forklifts use none of these components. Electric lifts don’t create carbon bi-products or emit harmful gases.

When looking for a forklift for your warehouse, lumberyard or any industry consider the benefits of an electric forklift.

I loved what you said about how electric forklifts don’t have as many parts to replace. It is nice to not have to worry about spark plugs, belts, pistons, etc. We have decided we need to purchase a forklift for our growing business. In order to have safety in mind as well as expense, it is best to purchase an electric forklift, especially since they don’t have to accommodate these extra parts.
