Our Partner For The
Planet Promise

Thank you for joining us in our partnership for the planet promise. You’ve taken the first step in working towards a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable future.  

Your sales rep has likely already worked with you to help understand all the environmental benefits to your new lift truck but here are a few reminders in case you need them:  

·     Each electric lift can reduce CO2 emissions by 120,000 lbs. over 10,000 hours of operation.
·     Each electric lift can eliminate up to 3,000 gallons of consumed fossil fuel.
·     Each electric lift can eliminate up to 100 gallons of engine, transmission and drive axel oil.
·     Each electric lift can eliminate over 70 filters going into landfills.
·     Average cost per hour to operate an electric is $2/hour less than gas trucks.
·     Average reduction in ambient noise pollution by 30 db. 

That’s Nice, But How Does This Impact Your Worksite?  

  • There are no emissions from an electric truck, helping you keep both your indoor and outdoor spaces safer. Improved air quality, less heat and less noise make for a more enjoyable work space.
  • A 5,000 lb. forklift running 2,000 hours consumes about $4,500 in LP gas annually.  The equivalent electric consumes just $700 of electricity annually. That’s an 85% energy savings per truck.
  • Electric lift trucks have around 50% less parts than their gas powered equivalents. 
    Less parts = less maintenance costs.

  • Electric powered forklifts can be much more compact than their gas powered counterparts. This can help in tight spaces and narrow aisles. Free up precious facility space. 
    What’s your cost per square foot?

  • It comes down to Total Cost of Ownership. On average, an electric forklift operates 25% – 30% less than a gas powered truck.
  • Our industry leading electric lifts can operate up to and beyond 16 hours on a single shift.  We have trucks running over 4,000 hours per year on just 1 battery. The need for extra batteries, storage and changing is a thing of the past. 


Thanks again for joining our Partner For The Planet Promise. Give us a call if you’re looking for other suggestions on how your lift can work better for not only you, but our biggest investment, Planet Earth.
