Yale Europe Materials Handling has announced a new counterbalance forklift engineered around a fully integrated and space-saving lithium-ion battery. The truck is highly efficient and offers charging flexibility thanks to the integrated zero-maintenance lithium-ion battery, resulting in a low cost of operation for customers. The Yale ERP25-30VLL Series offers all the benefits of lithium-ion power in a counterbalance truck: its fully-integrated battery requires zero maintenance, while opportunity charging enables the truck to complete a dual-shift operation without having to remove and replace its battery, unlike a conventional lead acid-based solution. As the truck has been designed around the power source, additional gains have been made in the operator compartment, creating a large open compartment which maximises comfort and convenience. Ivor Wilkinson, solutions manager at Yale, says: "Our new fully integrated lithium-ion truck showcases the innovative vision of Yale to develop the future of motive power. The ERP25-30VLL offers all the benefits of lithium-ion power: high efficiency, charging flexibility, zero maintenance. It embraces technology that enhances our customers' productivity while keeping operations costs low. We believe it is a powerful addition to our product range."
