New Design Features
With a range of new design features including a three phase AC motor technology, hydraulic system, high powerlifting motor, and new type low noisy heat pump the 1.8T reach truck can be a great fit for your business. The 1.8T reach truck also has advanced EPD electric-powered steering that reduces the total amount of weight in the truck reducing the power used from the engine.
With an automatic limit on the speed the truck can travel, independent braking systems and emergency brakes completing the new design features.
Lithium-Ion Battery Powered
Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the electric 1.8T lithium reach truck has a longer charge life than lead-acid batteries. With traditional lead-acid batteries often operators would have to stop and replace the battery entirely with a fully charged one, whereas lithium-ion technology can be opportunity charged to generate enough battery power for the 1.8T lithium reach truck to finish the rest of a shift.
Li-ion batteries have longer battery life and charge cycle, lasting between two to four times longer than a lead-acid reach truck battery. They are also extremely cost-saving as they don’t need to be maintained or watered the same way.
With 2 hours of fast charging, the reach truck can meet the 6-8 hour working demands of a full shift.
Zero Emissions – Greener Reach Truck Option
Lithium-ion battery-powered reach trucks are considered a ‘greener’ option; as they don’t contain lead, or acid, free of heavy metals, and produce zero emissions. Lithium-ion technology is also more efficient meaning you will be using a considerable amount of less energy, therefore reducing CO2 emissions in your business. As these reach truck batteries last longer you will be using fewer batteries than that of a traditional reach truck.
What Is The Difference Between A Traditional Forklift And A Reach Truck?
A reach truck is smaller than a forklift, allowing it to fit into smaller spaces and narrow aisles. With a smaller chassis, they are specifically designed to lift and move loads from heights that traditional forklifts are unable to access.
One of the other major differences is the way in which a reach support leg truck and counterbalance forklift stabilise their loads. Traditional counterbalance forklifts carry a larger counterweight in the rear of the forklift, with the weight of the load being carried out on the tynes reducing the risk of the forklift being tipped over when in use.
Reach trucks however do not have an external counterbalance weight but rely on stabilising legs extended out to the side of the tynes and the weight of the reach truck’s battery to keep the truck stable and reduce the risk of tipping over when in use.
One of the other major differences is the weight capacity of reach trucks and forklifts. With larger counterweights, forklifts are able to carry heavier loads than reach trucks, whereas reach trucks can lift loads up to heights that forklifts are unable to reach.
