Expanded Electric Lift Truck Portfolio

Hyster Company offers the E50-60XNL series, a cushion tire counterbalanced lift truck available in the 5,000 lb. to 6,000 lb. capacity range and specifically designed around factory integrated lithium-ion power. The E-XNL also addresses the growing demand for electric lift truck solutions for a broad range of intense applications, including general manufacturing, metals, paper and packaging.

"The E50-60XNL provides a solution with the advantages of a fully-integrated lithium-ion battery without compromising on the performance and productivity needed for demanding indoor applications," said James Nielson, Electric Counterbalanced Product Manager, Hyster Company. "We have designed this lift truck from the ground up to take advantage of the lighter, smaller size of lithium-ion batteries, resulting in improved operator ergonomics and efficiency gains over traditional battery box designs."

The E50-60XNL is designed around the lighter and smaller li-ion battery, resulting in reduced overall weight for improved acceleration and increased energy efficiency without sacrificing lift capacity. A lower center of gravity improves stability while the spacious operator compartment and lowered floor and seat offer additional headroom, easier entry and exit and increased freedom to position feet during operation.

"Lithium-ion power is a practical solution for intense operations, as proven in the higher-capacity J155-190XNL series alternative for heavy-duty applications that traditionally relied on internal combustion engines (ICE)," said a company spokesperson. "This power technology offers simple, reliable operation with zero battery maintenance, long battery life and fast charging times. In fact, with the proper charger, the E50-60XNL can go from 8% battery life to full power in as little as 65 minutes. It also eliminates the noise and vibration that operators experience on an ICE truck."

The lithium-ion battery technology is FDA compliant with zero emissions and no gassing during charging processes, making it suited for indoor operations. The battery operating range allows the truck to perform in a variety of harsh conditions, from -40 °F to 131 °F.
