Gentlemen, it’s a real pleasure to be here today and to have the opportunity to talk with you on “Electric vs. Gas Powered Lift Truck Applications in the Citrus Industry”. As you may know, “Gas vs. Electric” has been hotly argued in the materials handling field for over twenty years. I doubt very seriously that you can ever convert a died-in-the-wool gas truck man to electric trucks or vice versa, no matter how hard you try. However, that is not my objective here today. Rather, I would like to discuss this subject with you from the standpoint of costs, advantages and disadvantages, and applications of each in the Citrus Industry.
