Powered by an integrated high voltage Li-ion battery that provides long periods of truck operation before the need for recharging and 100% battery state of charge from fully flat within two hours.
Li-ion batteries contain no heavy metals such as cadmium or mercury and are also free of the gassing normally associated with lead acid batteries, resulting in a lower CO2 footprint.
They are capable of supporting intensive three-shift operations without battery exchange (via fast opportunity charging) The operating range of Li-ion batteries is significantly longer than the conventional alternative.
Not only is there a reduction in energy costs of up to 30% compared with lead-acid batteries, the operating range and life of lithium-ion batteries are significantly longer. In fact, at 80% discharge the lithium-ion batteries in Hyster® lift trucks can provide more than three times more work cycles.
When matched with the right tough application, these batteries also provide a low cost of ownership and a lifespan three times longer than their lead acid counterparts. Plus, unlike lead acid batteries, they are maintenance free.
