The benefits of using electric forklifts in your workplace

By Gogopower

Forklifts are a fundamental element in every company. It can be used from ordering your warehouse, to the handling of large volumes of industrial material.

Today, the use of electric forklifts has left the old conventional diesel and LPG models in the past. Diesel and LPG forklifts are known for being reliable workhorses, however, what are the benefits of using an electric forklift in your workplace?

Electric forklifts are environmentally friendly

The emissions produced by diesel and LPG forklifts contribute to your company's carbon footprint. With the Australian government planning to reach zero emissions by 2050, reducing your company's carbon footprint will help achieve this goal. Operating an electric forklift will produce significantly fewer emissions and they can be used indoors without polluting the air for your employees.

Electric forklifts have lower maintenance costs

With fewer internal components than diesel and LPG forklifts, electric forklifts have lower maintenance requirements and costs. Therefore, the routine service requirements of an electric forklift are reduced compared to the diesel/LPG forklift, which means fewer parts to maintain, minimizing the downtime of your business.

Electric forklifts are quiet

Loud, persistent noises can damage hearing for an extended period of time. Electric forklifts have a much lower operating noise level than diesel or LPG forklifts, which means that by opting for electricity, you will not only take care of the health of your workers, but also create a friendlier and safer working environment.
