BYD highlights Iron-Phosphate batteries at LogiMAT 2019

BYD is currently premiering a number of forklift innovations at LogiMAT, running from February 19-21.

All new BYD forklifts and warehouse equipment are fully equipped with the improved BYD Iron-Phosphate technology.

“The proven BYD Iron-Phosphate battery system offers tremendous cost savings and is considered by insiders to be a cost saver, allowing customers significant investment possibilities. We clearly want to demonstrate this”, said Blade Feng, newly appointed Business Unit Director Forklift at BYD Europe B.V.

The new range of forklifts and warehouse equipment on show feature BYD’s eight year or 10,000-hour battery warranty as well as maintenance free operation and up to 40 per cent reduction in energy use.

The new warehouse trucks include the second generation pallet truck PTP20S with a two tonne load capacity, EPS14P/EPS14Pi stacker with operator platform and initial lift, OPS30L horizontal order picker and T250 electric tow tractor with 25 tonne drawbar capacity.

Another first is the BYD ECB50C with air-conditioned drivers cab. Additional new features include dual joysticks and double pedal control for all trucks from two to five tonne capacity.

Furthermore, BYD will once again present its ECB20C ATEX, the world‘s first explosion proof truck featuring Lithium power. BYD continues its partnership with EX-protection specialists Miretti with the ability to offer ATEX machines with all BYD counterbalance trucks.

Also on show are a range of products which premiered in 2018 including the PTW20S two tonne compact powered pallet truck, ECB18DB 1.8 tonne four wheel compact lift truck and the RTR16 reach truck with 1.6 tonne nominal capacity, as well as the ECB18C three wheel truck.
