Why Lead-Acid Batteries
Yale® offers a wide range of lead acid battery-powered lift trucks with proven, reliable performance, from walkie pallet trucks all the way to sit-down counterbalanced models designed for 12,000-pound loads.
- No emissions while in operation: Greatly reduce emissions and meet standards for air quality and help meet sustainability goals
- Lower up-front cost: Reap the benefits of a mature technology with reduced startup cost compared to other motive power options
- Reduced skilled mechanical maintenance requirements: Electric lift trucks have fewer moving mechanical parts and fluids than internal combustion engines, thus reducing the burden on a limited skilled technical labor pool
- Mild burden on electrical grid: Charge lead-acid batteries on staggered schedules, during non-peak times or via a high-frequency charger to reduce strain on electrical grids, ideal for higher-priced areas or older infrastructure
