Traditional battery electric forklift trucks have one big problem, the inconvenience and cost involved in having to constantly charge, change and replace batteries. But now, a new range of forklift trucks from BYD Europe is on sale that does away with this problem while simultaneously providing a very dramatic cut in operating costs for end users.
Based on BYD unique concept of battery for life with the BYD Iron-Phosphate Battery, BYD forklift range includes three- and four-wheel counterbalance trucks, a 12 Km/hour heavy-duty powered pallet truck and a stacker, and will save users a very significant percentage of their total forklift operating costs.
All of these trucks are powered by BYD's astonishing battery for life, an Iron-phosphate battery cell which requires just a fraction of the time taken by traditional lead-acid batteries to charge fully, uses much less energy during the charging and discharging process, can be set to charge within seconds via a highly convenient socket on the side of the truck without any need for risky battery removal, and it lasts for so long that you can forget about expensive battery replacements.
The many benefits of the Iron-Phosphate Battery, combined with the significant performance characteristics of the BYD forklifts and their competitive price, make BYD forklifts models a serious contender for any lift truck fleet that prides itself on safety, efficiency and productivity.
