An Electric Forklift from Trucks Direct UK LTD
Electric forklifts are one of the most popular choices of trucks to buy. This is mainly due to the versatility of the machines as well as their low noise output. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. When maintaining your used electric forklift, battery care is of the upmost of importance. This is the main reason all of our electric forklift trucks come with 12 month onsite battery warranty, offering you complete peace of mind. All our electric forklifts for sale or hire come with a fully tested battery charger with all models which can be either single or three phase to suit your electrical supply. We have many electric used electric forklifts in stock at any one time, including both three wheel and four wheel machines.
Battery electric forklifts are the most environmentally friendly. They are fume free in operation, giving off no harmful emissions. They are also quiet in use, and due to the weight and concentrated mass of the battery, they are generally more manoeuvrable than engine powered equivalents, due to the battery weight acting as an effective counterbalance, enabling the truck to be more compact in size. The cost of recharging the battery overnight on low rate tariff is considerably less than replacing gas bottles or filling a tank with diesel fuel.
Electric forklift trucks are generally easier to drive than engine powered machines, because they only have an accelerator and a brake pedal unless they are hydrastically powered. There is no clutch pedal or inching pedal, and the operator does not have to "rev" the engine for fast lift or hill starting. The maintenance and servicing costs of an electric forklift is considerably less than engine powered alternatives.
