The new EFL302 from EP is a 3-tonne Lithium-ion forklift with a single purpose: replacing diesel yard trucks. It has the same low price, tough chassis and tested components - but in place of the diesel engine, there's just a Lithium-ion battery and silent electric motors.
Thanks to its efficient LFP battery chemistry, the EFL302 typically reduces net energy costs by 30% over a lead-acid forklift, and 50% over an IC forklift. Combined with the low-maintenance electric drivechain, this delivers huge savings in long-term TCO. The battery was developed inhouse by EP, and is maintenance-free, emissions-free and impact-safe. The charge and discharge rates are approximately equal, so a full three-hour charge delivers about three hours of operation.
As standard, the EFL302 has a 4.8-metre triplex container mast, with all the functionality needed for yard operations - freelift for unloading shipping containers, tilt and sideshift for unloading trucks, and a wide field of view for safety. The truck can be used in all weathers, on uneven terrain, and gradients up to 15%.
The EFL302 is a smart solution for companies looking to get the most out of their operating budget. A range of ownership models are available from Simpro, including outright purchase and long-term lease. The EFL302 is backed by a 2-year factory warranty.
