In today’s economy and competitive business environment, you’re looking for the best ways to get the most out of each dollar you spend while giving yourself an advantage over the competition.
If your business or farm uses forklifts, you get both when you use propane-powered forklifts with forklift cylinder exchange services from Boehlke Bottled Gas!
We are a local, family-owned business that has been serving Southeast Wisconsin for more than 80 years and we understand the needs and concerns of local businesses and farms better than any large, national propane company can. Because we are locally based, we provide responsive service that cannot be matched.
Our propane forklift services start with our commercial propane experts learning about your business and how you use forklifts. We take that information and craft a customized propane forklift cylinder exchange schedule for your business.
Boehlke Bottled Gas makes using propane in your forklifts easy and hassle-free. You’ll get on-time delivery of full, safe, and certified cylinders and pickup of your empty cylinders. We offer no-charge leasing for the propane cylinder storage cages at your business. You and your employees will get thorough training in everything you all need to know about how to safely handle and store propane cylinders.
Power. Propane forklifts operate at full power as long as there is propane in the cylinder. Electric forklifts lose power as their batteries run down. Propane forklifts also perform better than electric forklifts because they can handle heavier loads and are more capable of working on inclines.
Cost-effectiveness. It might take eight hours for an electric forklift to be recharged. That forklift is sidelined if the battery goes dead during business hours. You also need to invest space and money in electric forklift charging stations. Propane forklifts have the longest running times between refuels of any fuel. Refueling takes mere minutes to complete: Simply swap the empty tank for a full one!
Safety. Propane forklifts are completely safe to use both indoors and outside as long as safety procedures and regulations are followed.
Versatility. Indoor use is not allowed for gasoline-powered forklifts. Outdoors, electric forklifts are inefficient and can’t function in certain conditions. Propane forklifts can do it all, whether indoors or out!
Environmental friendliness. Propane forklifts produce far fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline-powered forklifts. In the very unlikely event of a propane leak, there is no environmental harm done, unlike if there was a gasoline leak. Because coal-fired power plants generate about half of the nation’s electricity, electric forklifts aren’t as environmentally friendly as propane ones.
