Free of brushes and commutators, fully AC-powered lift trucks are designed to facilitate production and reliability. The reduction of wearable parts helps eliminate costs and downtime associated with motor brush cleaning, checks and replacements. Improved traction performance and variable electric on-demand steering help reduce energy consumption, and an AC brushless hoist motor powers the hydraulic system. The hydraulic system contributes to increased performance and energy savings through the use of powered and regenerative lowering. The units’ AC drive motor is designed to extend battery life to provide more runtime per battery charge. An extended shift feature enables enhanced runtime without recharging over longer periods.
