Diesel forklifts hold many advantages over their gas and electric counterparts. As well as being significantly more powerful, diesel forklifts feature easy-to-maintain engines and very low running costs - in fact, diesel forklift trucks demand just half of the cost of running a gas-powered truck.
However, due to their fume emissions and relatively high noise levels, our used diesel forklift trucks are best suited for outdoor use. When used outside, the exhaust fumes and particles escape easily into the atmosphere, avoiding environmental or health and safety issues which could occur indoors.
Our diesel used forklifts also boast better acceleration and lift speeds than electric forklifts. When you come to us for diesel forklifts for sale or hire, you won't have to worry about a shortage of battery - unlike with electric trucks.
We can provide diesel forklifts which can be used day or night, and can be easily disposed of as they have a higher residual value than LPG or electric machines.
Maintenance and servicing costs are lower than gas trucks, as their engine components are sturdier and operate at lower revs - therefore enjoying a far longer life.
So, if you are looking for competitive diesel forklift leasing or purchase deals, make sure you come to us here at Trucks Direct UK Ltd.
