If your business is environmentally focused, but still needs reliable forklifts, electric (battery operated) powered forklifts are the machines for you.
Available for local sale, lease purchase and hire Hitec Lift Trucks, Hyster electric counterbalance forklifts have a great number of benefits.
Electric counterbalance forklifts are the most eco-friendly forklift due to the lack of emissions generated when used; they also don’t require costly additional fuel as they can simply be recharged before their next use.
A lack of emissions not only boosts the electric forklift as a green alternative, but also improves the safety of those around the forklifts as they operate.
Due to their lighter nature, these models tend to be a lot more manoeuvrable and easier to drive. This is due to the battery (which overhangs the back of the forklift) acting as a counterbalance.
Electric forklifts are also more compact than their counterparts and as such are easier to store – this is especially important if you have a smaller facility.
