What powers your forklifts?

Advancements in motive power technology have changed the game in how forklifts operate. From traditional lead-acid internal combustion engine power sources to advanced solutions including lithium-ion and hydrogen fuel cells, there are several power options to choose from based on your operational needs. Newer, more sustainable lithium-ion and hydrogen fuel cells can reduce downtime and last three times longer than traditional batteries. By implementing these fuel-efficient power solutions you can reduce your facility’s emissions, helping meet your corporate sustainability goals.

Sustainable power options:

Over recent years, advancements in sustainable power sources such as lithium-ion batteries and hydrogen fuel cells have dramatically changed the game in motive power, and for good reason. These power sources provide safer and more efficient motive power with minimal maintenance and less emissions.

Benefits of lithium-ion battery:

  • Minimal maintenance
  • Consistent power delivery
  • Broad temperature range performance
  • Quick opportunity charging

Hydrogen fuel cell:

  • Consistent power delivery
  • Minimal facility footprint
  • Refuels as quickly as three minutes
  • Zero harmful emissions

Conventional lead acid batteries take valuable storage space, time to refill and require frequent maintenance including watering and equalizing. These batteries are inherently dangerous if not handled properly and contain dangerous chemicals.
