A completely full forklift propane tank weighs nearly 40 pounds! And if your facility requires operators to switch out tanks, it can be a injury waiting to happen! We’ve got the perfect solution. Replace your standard forklift tank bracket with our swing out, tilt down forklift tank bracket.
Newer forklifts such as Toyota, Hyster, Yale, and CAT offer this as an option on their newest forklifts. Now you can add this to older existing forklifts.
LPG tanks can be hard to tank out, that’s why swing out brackets were invented. Swing out and drop down tank brackets offer an easy way to change your LPG tank on your propane forklift. Here is what they look like in action:

The load wheels of a machine are primarily responsible for carrying the load, and typically carry the braking system making them a vital component of its respective machine. Depending on the material that your machine drives on will determine what type of material is needed.
Common materials include the following: polyurethane, nylon, steel and rubber. In addition to material type, level of hardness is also a key attribute. With these components comes a difficult decision: which material do I need for MY machinery?
All of these forklift brands–Yale, Clark, Hyster, Toyota, Crown, Raymond, CAT— don’t manufacture their own load wheels, so when you buy from Intella, you’re most likely buying from the same suppliers as them ensuring that the load wheel you purchase fits the model you use. Intella also offers the best parts prices across the internet!

Electric forklifts contribute to an electrical revolution– gas vehicle market share is slowly decreasing as EVs are produced– and forklifts are no different. “How long will an electric forklift last” is a very common question, and this blog will outline what factors to look at when deciding whether or not to replace an electric forklift.
1. Cost of Maintenance vs Cost of Replacement
A key factor to consider when considering replacing a forklift, whether electric or not, is cost of maintenance versus the cost of replacement. Once the cost of maintenance exceeds the cost of replacement, it is time to replace your forklift, as all money spent on maintenance is essentially lost money. The primary maintenance cost is battery replacement (which can be very expensive).
2. Amount of Charges
The amount of times that an electric forklift is charged determines how long the forklift will last as the batteries will wear out. On average, an electric forklift lasts 1,400 charges (6-8 hours per charge), which will result in about 5-7 years of usage, depending on how often it is used. If your forklift is getting close to the 5-7 year old range, it might be time to replace it.
3. Heavy vs Light Load
Next, a big factor into an electric forklift’s longevity is daily load. If using a larger load, expect see a 6-12 month decrease in lifespan due to wear and tear. If your forklift typically lifts a heavy load regularly, consider replacing it sooner.
4. Inclement Weather
If a forklift experiences cold weather, rain, or snow often, it will contribute to a decreased lifespan.
5. Quality of Maintenance
Typically, electric forklifts have much less maintenance due to how fewer parts they have than that of an ICE (internal combustion engine) forklift. With that being said, batteries can and do break. A well maintained battery will go a long way in improving an electric forklift’s longevity.
Making a decision on which forklift your company should purchase is not an easy and ephemeral one. There are multiple factors that may contribute to a forklift’s cost. This can include: cost of battery or type of engine — depending on if you want an electric forklift or not.
Typical Cost of a New Forklift
Q: How much does a new LPG forklift cost in 2021?
A: A new Hyster S50FT LPG forklift would cost $28,500 in 2021.
Q: How much does a new electric forklift cost in 2021?
A: A new electric forklift costs $37,000 in 2021.
Factors to Consider When Buying a New Forklift
We understand that forklift cost is a key, if not the most important, factor when considering to purchase a forklift. With that being said, there are a number of different characteristics that different forklifts provide that you may need for an optimal forklift experience.
Gas vs Electric
As the world slowly moves from gas vehicles to EVs, the forklift industry is no different. Forklifts are still made as propane-based and are typically cheaper than an electric equivalent.
With that being said, the price of refilling a tank for a propane forklift is much higher than the cost of recharging a battery. In addition, maintenance for a propane forklift is typically higher than that of an electric one.
Brand of Forklift
There are a plethora of forklift manufacturers, all producing quality models. However, each manufacturer offers different manuals and parts numbers, and the quality of this contributes to an important characteristic of ease of getting aftermarket parts. Luckily, here at Intella we offer full customer support and access to parts for every forklift manufacturer.
When purchasing a forklift, it is important to consider the opinion of the operator, as they are the ones that have to ride the machinery for multiple continuous hours.
