Electric forklifts

Powerful electric forklifts by Jungheinrich.

People and machines must work as one for effective transport and handling in production and storage facilities. Our electric forklifts step in where human muscle power leaves off: they can reach up to 7.5 metres and lift loads of up to 5,000kg, carrying them safely – even over long distances.

Our electric counterbalance forklifts deliver maximum efficiency with minimum energy consumption. Agile electric forklifts deliver top performance with the latest three-phase motors and our mature PureEnergy concept. This technology coordinates all forklift truck components, achieving optimum efficiency automatically. Efficiency meets economy in an electric forklift.

Electric forklifts by Jungheinrich – efficiency in minimal space.

The compact, agile design of our electric forklifts makes the job easy, even in challenging spaces. The rear duplex wheel and turntable steering allow forklifts to turn up to 180 degrees on the spot, providing supreme agility. Handling and steering are best on level substrates.

Our electric forklift trucks are ideal for working in a wide range of situations. Our ultra-flexible, agile electric counterbalance forklifts are reliable partners for foodstuff and beverage warehouses, multi-shift automobile operations, palette transport in logistics and dispatch warehouses as well as loading and unloading containers, wagons and HGVs.

Made with ergonomics in mind.

Our electric counterbalance trucks are all about ergonomics. The panorama mast gives everyone good all-round visibility – indoors and outdoors. Manoeuvring isn’t just quick, easy and precise – it’s truly safe as well. The truck also adapts to your physical requirements. The individual configuration and adjustment options and spacious cab give you complete freedom of movement and an ergonomic workspace.

3- and 4-wheel electric counterbalance forklifts for unmatched agility.

Jungheinrich offers both 3-wheel electric forklifts and 4-wheel electric forklifts. The rear axle works as a steering axle in both, offering great manoeuvrability. The question of whether the 3- wheel electric forklift truck or its 4-wheel counterpart is more suitable depends on where you use your electric counterbalance forklifts and the load capacity that you require.

If the electric forklift truck is mainly used in confined spaces or for loading and unloading HGVs and containers on level substrates, then the super-agile 3-wheel forklift with its excellent manoeuvrability is for you. The wheels can easily be turned at a 90° angle, which allows the electric forklift trucks to turn on the spot. This means that 3-wheel Jungheinrich electric counterbalance forklifts can manage loads of up to 2,000kg and lifting heights of up to 6.5 metres even in the most confined spaces.

But if you want to use your electric forklift trucks for working in the pallet warehouse, on uneven terrain or bigger loads, 4-wheel electric forklift trucks are ideal. Although they have a bigger turning circle, they are much more stable on bends, moving loads of up to 5,000kg up to 7.5 metres.

Power on: Energy to move forward.

Jungheinrich presents compact energy for maximum performance. Equipped with the latest Li-ion electric power, outstanding maneuverability and smarter than ever before. The advanced truck monitoring via Telematics Box allows intelligent recording of usage data and thus opens the way to Intralogistics 4.0.

Electric forklift trucks – agile and powerful

With our agile electric forklift trucks, you can maximise your throughput performance in narrow-aisle warehouses. 3-phase AC motors combine impressive performance with minimal consumption. You also have the choice between innovative Lithium-ion technology or tried-and-tested lead-acid batteries.

Our agile electric forklift trucks shine in warehouses offering little room to manoeuvre. Thanks to their small and compact design, these trucks can easily navigate even the narrowest of aisles. The trucks are most at home on level indoor floors, but can also handle outdoor applications with ease. As a further benefit, the mast of the electric forklift trucks is ideal for both racking and stacking and can reach lift heights ranging from 2300 to 7500 millimetres. The capacity of the trucks is up to five tons. In daily use, your drivers will enjoy the many benefits offered by our electric forklifts, including extra seat comfort, a perfect all-round view and comprehensive assistance systems to protect the operator, load and warehouse.

Electric forklift trucks with 3-phase AC technology

Our innovative 3-phase AC technology also delivers a number of advantages. It ensures dynamic handling and maximum throughput performance, even under heavy loads. And increased performance does not necessarily mean greater consumption: Thanks to regenerative braking, for instance, 30 percent of the energy is fed back into the battery. This welcome energy boost allows our electric forklift trucks to complete even more work on a single charge. Our 3-phase AC motors also require very little maintenance, thus lowering your operating costs.

Batteries for electric forklift trucks

The right battery for your electric forklift truck depends on your individual requirements. Our pioneering lithium-ion technology offers rapid charging times and requires virtually zero maintenance. Moreover, our lithium-ion batteries last up to three times longer than conventional batteries. If you already have one of our electric forklift trucks, it can be easily retrofitted with lithium-ion power.

Our tried-and-tested lead-acid batteries on the other hand, are all about stamina. With these batteries, you benefit from our 2Shifts1Charge guarantee, which is unrivalled in the logistics sector: Our electric counterbalance trucks can complete two consecutive shifts without the need for battery replacement or top-up charging. This saves you time, energy and costs.
