Why Choose an LPG Forklift?

When it comes to choosing a fuel for your forklift fleet, propane powered forklifts stand out as a reliable and efficient choice. LPG forklifts, offer a range of benefits that make them a superior choice over electric or diesel alternatives.

Consistent Power Delivery:

LPG forklifts provide consistent power throughout operation. Unlike electric forklifts, which may see a decrease in performance as the battery drains, an LPG forklift maintains its power level until the propane tank is depleted. This ensures that your forklifts operate at peak efficiency throughout their entire work cycle.

Lower Emissions:

LPG forklifts are an environmentally friendly choice. They emit fewer harmful emissions compared to diesel forklifts, contributing to a healthier workplace and lower environmental impact.


LPG forklifts can be used in a wide variety of settings, both indoors and outdoors. They are less affected by temperature variations compared to electric forklifts, which makes them ideal for operations with variable working conditions.

Ease of Refueling:

With an LPG forklift, refueling is quick and simple. This means less downtime compared to waiting for an electric forklift battery to recharge. At Superior Propane, we provide easy and efficient propane delivery services to keep your LPG forklifts running without interruption.


In the long run, LPG forklifts can be more cost-effective. Propane is often cheaper than electricity, and the maintenance costs for LPG forklifts can be lower than their electric counterparts.

Investing in LPG forklifts for your business can lead to increased productivity, lower operational costs, and a smaller environmental footprint. Contact Superior Propane today to find out more about our propane solutions for LPG forklifts.
