Did you know?

Electric forklifts are gaining in popularity. They are:

  • Smaller and more maneuverable—they can operate in narrower aisles
  • Stronger—they can lift up to 12,000 lbs
  • More durable—they can operate outdoors and on uneven surfaces
  • Longer lasting—they can run up to 8 hours on a single battery charge

Switch to electric forklifts and see:

  • Greater use of floor space with narrower aisles
  • Safer, quieter and healthier workplace
  • Lower fuel, ownership and operating costs
  • Better environmental profile
