  2. Easily accessible 24 hours a day, there’s no downtime with this option since the user simply needs to refill the tank with diesel fuel when it gets low (vs. having to wait to recharge its battery).
  3. No extra space must be reserved for a special battery charging station for a diesel forklift; it can be parked wherever it is convenient.
  4. The capacity of this forklift’s battery can easily handle the addition and use of any necessary hydraulic attachments.
  5. The more components that access power from the electric forklift’s battery, the quicker that battery and the overall power of the electric forklift is drained.
