The newest Noblelift lithium iron phosphate LFP/LiFePO4 electric 60Q and 70Q Series forklifts feature a IP4 rated waterproof design for indoor-outdoor applications to contend with traditional internal combustion (IC) forklifts while being emissions-free, cost-effective and designed for energy proficiency, according to the company. By keeping productivity at its peak, the series answers the call for high-density, high-throughput environments.
Available in 6,000-to-7,000-pound load capacities in double- or triple-stage masts of up to 255 inches (21.25 feet), Noblelift, with its North American location based in Des Plaines, Illinois, says its Q series lithium iron phosphate forklifts deliver reduced energy consumption and faster cycle times while having a safer more stable battery chemistry to avoid overheating and or explosion. The series is designed to perform in heavy-duty applications with equivalent performances of the traditional IC trucks in the market.
Faster and longer charge cycles allow more material to be moved, with 10,000 cycles requiring only 2.5 hours of charging versus 1,000 to 1,500 cycles with eight hours of charging and eight hours of cooling for lead-acid batteries, the manufacturer says.
No scheduled maintenance is required, and the battery is maintenance-free and does not require watering, gassing and cooling down.
