Benefits of Diesel Forklifts

When you add a diesel lift truck to your fleet, you’ll see a world of difference. The advantages of Quinn Lift’s diesel forklifts include:

  • Better performance: Diesel forklifts offer more driveline torque at a lower RPM, acceleration and speed. These lifts can handle any hydraulic conditions.
  • Higher lift capacity: Diesel lift trucks can handle heavier materials than other forklift types, making them ideal for industrial applications.
  • Longer engine life: Since the diesel forklift requires less maintenance, its engine will last longer.
  • Reduced fuel costs: Diesel costs less than propane, making diesel forklifts the cost-effective option.
  • Enhanced rearview visibility: Operators have a better view since the forklift doesn’t have a propane tank.
  • Lower total cost of ownership: The minimal maintenance requirements and economically priced fuel give you a lower ownership cost.
  • Made for the outdoors: Since diesel forklifts are unaffected by wet or damp conditions, you can use them at outdoor job sites.
