My business is in the process of a green overhaul. We are looking at sustainable options to reduce our company’s carbon footprint in everything from coffee cups to serious equipment. One of our major investments has been as electric forklift.
It is far less of a threat on the environment than an engine powered machine and unawares to me far quieter too. Also, unlike its diesel or gas counterparts, an electric forklift is much easier to operate with only an accelerator and brake-pedal to worry about.
Whilst the initial cost exceeds that of other forklifts, we project savings of literally hundreds of thousands of dollars in fuel over the years. This is when taking in to consideration the additional electric forklifts that we hope to acquire.
We bought ours from http://www.ntpforklifts.com.au/ and are already in greener pastures.
