Forklift & Buffer Cylinders

The use of propane-powered forklifts provides a variety of benefits to companies that use them in their daily construction projects or warehouse management.

  • Eco-Friendly: Propane is clean, reliable, non-toxic and an economical alternative fuel source
  • Flexibility: Propane forklifts can move independently inside and outside a facility transporting loads without the need to recharge for long periods of time
  • Productivity: Capable of moving larger loads of products for longer periods of time, propane forklifts increase the amount of volume that a facility can handle compared to electric
