Electric forklifts are used mainly in confined spaces, high racking warehouse situations and food industry.
Electric Forklifts offer excellent turning circle and high lift height capability through low centre of gravity by specific design to facilitate these features.
Not suitable for yard use.
Electric forklifts use large industrial batteries, upwards of 1 ton of battery. These batteries are expensive to replace and require regular forklift maintenance, and of course have to be charged.
They can only be used in a covered environment, exposure to rain and the elements is not recommended.
