33 used Electric Forklift Trucks for sale in the United Kingdom (as of 24-Mar-2023)
Although electric lift trucks now provide very good performance, gas lift trucks or diesel lift trucks are often the better choice when maximum performance and a high payload are key factors.
An advantage of used electric lift trucks is the continuous controllability. The design renders classic gear changing unnecessary. Electric engines also provide very high torque even at low speeds.
Since electric lift trucks with replaceable batteries have been on the market, previous disadvantages no longer exist. Modern electric lift trucks are as suitable for continuous shift operations as forklifts with combustion engines.
Today some used electric lift trucks have a braking energy recovery system, which significantly reduces energy use. Electric lift trucks additionally require less maintenance and are less subject to repairs than vehicles with combustion engines.
