New 80-Volt Technology Lift Trucks
A few years ago, internal combustion (IC) forklifts were the most prevalent trucks in the material handling industry. Today, companies prefer electric lift trucks with AC drive technology for their operations.
Even though the industry has shown interest for AC-driven forklift trucks since their introduction to the market, its limited load capacity was a major disadvantage. Thanks to recent technological advancements in 48-volt and 80-volt AC motors, electric lift trucks have since captivated the material handling industry.Traditionally, IC-powered forklifts have been used for their ability to move heavy loads efficiently over any terrain. Also, these trucks are considered to lift materials faster, reach higher speeds and accelerate quicker than other trucks.
These days, electric AC motors, especially the 80-volt series, have proven to run 15-20 hours on a single battery charge and provide the same or better performance benefits as internal combustion trucks, plus other advantages such as reduced energy consumption and reduced maintenance expenses. Furthermore, a quieter engine in the 80 volts allow operators to work for longer and more comfortable hours of forklift utilization since less vibration is transferred from the motor to the seat, steering wheel and floorboard.
We offer 80-volt forklifts because we believe these trucks provide the highest efficiency for your operation, without harmful emissions. Find out more about this type of forklift truck by contacting us today!
