Lithium-Ion Power

If you are looking for a realistic and viable way to bring clean energy into your business operation, consider lithium-ion battery technology. Lift trucks with lithium-ion batteries are powerful workhorses releasing no toxic emissions into the air. Spills and acid leaks are never a concern. Plus, FDA compliance is met. Every Hyster® or Yale® electric lift truck may be easily retrofitted and converted from lead-batteries. 

Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Looking for ways to reduce lift truck emissions, lower operational costs and improve efficiency in your warehouse? Many material handling businesses have turned to hydrogen fuel cells, as an alternative fuel solution for their lift trucks. Lift trucks powered by hydrogen fuel release no harmful greenhouse emissions making them safer for operators and environmentally friendly. They are reliable and easier to maintain than other engine types. Since these fuel cells recharge in a matter of minutes, you can expect shorter equipment downtime and your operation will be more productive and run more efficiently. Contact your Eastern Lift Truck Co Account Manager to learn how you can benefit from this type of alternative fuel solution.
