Lithium-Ion Power Benefits
Clean, Cost-Effective Power
With increasing scrutiny of industrial emissions, stricter environmental regulations, and fluctuating energy costs, alternative power solutions are becoming ever more attractive to material handling businesses. Zero toxic emissions, spills, or acid leaks mean lithium-ion forklift batteries are much more environmentally friendly than their lead-acid counterparts. They are also FDA compliant.
In a five-year period, you could replace about four lead-acid battery packs and maintain them regularly, or install a single, maintenance-free lithium-ion battery pack and save more than 80% on lift truck battery costs and recycling waste.
Made for Material Handling
Hyster® and Yale® lithium-ion battery packs are recognized under the UL 583 safety standard for electric battery-powered industrial trucks — the only safety standard recognized by the Industrial Truck Standards Development Foundation for use in material handling equipment.
Lithium-ion forklift batteries are capable of functioning in a full range of ambient temperatures, from -31°F to 104°F, with little to no drop-off in voltage output. This makes them an ideal motive power solution for a variety of industries, from cold-storage to intensive manufacturing applications.
Start Saving Today
Throughout 2018, new Hyster® and Yale® electric forklifts will be manufactured with the capability of operating with lead-acid or lithium-ion batteries, or hydrogen fuel cells. We are excited that there will now be three different fuel options for every Hyster® or Yale® stand-up, sit-down, or walk-behind electric lift truck! In addition, all current production Hyster® and Yale® electric forklifts may be easily retrofitted and converted from lead-acid batteries to lithium-ion batteries or hydrogen fuel cells.
For more information about lithium-ion forklift batteries, please contact your Eastern Lift Truck Co. Account Manager. We would be happy to review your operation and set up a demonstration.
