Konecranes Electric Lift Trucks Combines Heavy Duty Performance with Eco-Efficient Features
August 10, 2022
Konecranes provides world class solutions for heavy handling applications.
Perform bigger jobs at lower operating costs with the Konecranes E-VER electric lift truck. Designed with the latest eco-efficient features, this line up will enhance your productivity, prevent exhaust emissions, and reduce energy consumption. In this post we discuss the key features and benefits of the E-EVER fully electric driveline.
Compared to its diesel counterpart, the E-VER electric forklift cuts energy consumption by up to 70%. Only requiring about 45 minutes to recharge the battery, you can keep working throughout the day with minimal downtime. Additionally, braking energy is recovered and stored for later use.
With the option to be powered by one or two Li-ion battery packs, the Konecranes E-VER lineup can be customized to your job requirements. Changed your mind and want to add another battery? Not to worry! The smart design of the truck allows you to easily retrofit a second battery after the fact. The lifetime of each battery is about 4000 charge cycles*. This amounts to about five to six years of operation in average conditions.
*may vary based on your usage.
Electric forklifts have fewer moving parts and no gearbox compared to traditional diesel lift trucks. This means less maintenance costs and more time on the site knocking out your tough jobs. Because there is no heat and less vibration from the engine, some components will have longer lifespans. Work with confidence knowing that this machine is built with the same tried and tested sturdy frame design, steer axel, and lifting mechanism as a familiar diesel forklift.
Operator Comfort and Safety
With less noise pollution and luxurious cab features, operators get a more enjoyable ride. The electric drive motor lets drivers go from stand-still to full motor torque in smooth acceleration, all while delivering a quieter and steadier experience. In addition, a spacious cab with high visibility and ergonomic controls ensures less operator stress and fatigue.
Prioritizing safety, the Konecranes E-VER battery is designed to not release any emissions during operations. Three key safety features are also implemented:
- Electric current is stopped while the vehicle is charging
- Battery cells are balanced and managed to maximize efficiency
- Get automatic warnings signals
