Thank you for your patience.
Over the last 25 years, sales of electric lift trucks have grown from less than one-third of annual lift truck sales to more than half of annual sales. Class I forklifts, like those used in manufacturing, warehouse and retail applications, are incorporating new technologies to increase performance and usability while providing lower operating costs for customers.
Some of these technology enhancements include:
Additionally, new low-maintenance gel cell and sealed batteries are reducing maintenance demand. EPRI has conducted numerous studies of the long-term impacts of fast charging on battery life. Results to date have shown no adverse effect on battery life, and in some cases, extended battery life.
Fast charging of batteries offers several advantages:
High frequency battery chargers are a great option for companies looking to charge electric forklifts more efficiently. PSO customers can take advantage of business rebates to help reduce the cost of upgrading to efficient chargers. See how you could save $500 on qualifying high frequency forklift battery chargers.
While electric forklifts have higher initial costs than Internal Combustion (IC) trucks, they have lower maintenance and much lower fuel costs, which substantially reduces the lifecycle costs of electric trucks.
If you’re interested in electric forklifts for your operation, please reach out to your PSO Account Manager to discuss your options.
