Why Electric Warehouse is Equipment is Better

Electric Warehouse Movers, Why Electric Warehouse is Equipment is Better

Electric Warehouse Movers

Have you made the switch to electric warehouse movers yet? If you’re still on the fence, consider these important advantages you can gain choosing electric over diesel.

1. Easy to maintain

Electric movers generally have fewer parts than diesel equipment, so maintenance is less complicated and time-consuming. In addition, repairs are less costly because there are not as many parts to malfunction. With electric movers, your warehouse doesn’t have to take a hit in productivity due to equipment that’s out of commission.

2. More eco-friendly

Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA) regulations specify that maximum carbon dioxide content allowed in warehouses is 50 parts per million as an eight-hour average. Electric movers run cleaner, resulting in only trace emissions. Your warehouse stays in compliance while employees enjoy safer working conditions.

3. Less vibration

Diesel equipment is often prone to a significant number of vibrations during operation. This affects warehouses in two different ways:

  • Vibrations create excessive stress that creates a greater risk of damage.
  • Hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS) can have short- and long-term effects on the health of your employees.

Electric movers experience a minimum number of vibrations, moderating the danger of these side effects.

4. Low center of gravity

Objects with lower centers of gravity are more stable, reducing the chances of tip-over accidents that can injure workers and damage products. Electric warehouse movers are also anchored by a heavy battery pack that keeps them upright.

5. Longer lifespan

You can get more bang for your buck with electric movers, which last up to 12 years. That’s 50 percent longer than the eight-year lifespan of diesel equipment.

6. Extended battery life

Depending on the size of the load, batteries in an electric mover can last for a full eight-hour shift. Recharging batteries is a simple process that allows for less downtime.
