The three-wheeled trucks of the E12 – E20 EVO series offer a wide range of models with different battery sizes, overall heights or aisle widths and can thus be configured according to specific requirements. The trucks also allow for precision load handling in tight spaces. Thanks to the central pivot axle, the driver can turn up to 180 degrees with a single steering wheel movement. Two three-phase motors integrated in the front axle guarantee a powerful drive, offering outstanding acceleration and top speeds, powered by 48 or 24 volt batteries. The energy management system ensures the batteries are used to full capacity, minimizing consumption. What’s more, all E12 – E20 EVO forklift models can also be equipped with Lithium-Ion batteries that allow for efficient multiple-shift operation without the need to change batteries.
The trucks are equipped with a wide range of standard safety functions. The Linde ProtectorFrame protects the driver. The roof and frame form a solid closed protection zone. The overhead tilt cylinders stabilize the mast and enable the use of slim, nested lift mast profiles. This gives the driver the best possible view of the load and the working environment. All circuits of the control system are designed redundantly, thus ensuring a high level of reliability and operational safety. Traction control ensures optimum power delivery even under difficult conditions. Additional protection is provided by numerous optional safety systems that are available ex works and as retrofit solutions.
Forklifts in the E12 – E16 EVO range are ergonomically designed for fatigue-free, effective working processes – something they have in common with all Linde trucks. The spacious cabin offers plenty of legroom and lots of storage space, while the mast and axle are decoupled from the chassis and driver's cab, meaning very few vibrations are felt by the driver in the cab. Where the EVO generation really shines are the wide entry step and the adjustable armrest and seat unit.
The special strength of the three-wheel forklift lies in its maneuverability: thanks to its turntable axle, it is possible to turn the steering 180 degrees: the forklift turns in the middle of the front axle. The two front wheels roll in opposite directions when steering. This reduces the load on the tires and protects the floor coverings. Energy consumption is reduced due to the minimum steering resistance. In addition, Linde Load Control in combination with the twin-engine front drive ensures safe, millimeter-precise load handling. Lift mast functions can be effortlessly controlled from the fingertips. Drivers can perform lift and tilt functions simultaneously. Individually adjustable driving dynamics can also be used to adapt the performance to the operating situation.
E12 – E20 EVO electric forklift trucks offer particularly economical maintenance intervals: the first servicing tasks only need to be carried out after 1000 operating hours. Transmission oil change is only necessary after 3000 operating hours, and a hydraulic oil change only after 6000 hours. Servicing has been considered even in the construction of the truck, ensuring easy access to all components in the event of necessary repairs, with service panels for maintenance access, and minimized maintenance work. Key, truck parts subject to heavy loads are completely maintenance-free, including the integrated drive axle with brakes and three-phase motors, the mast and tilt cylinders, and the reduction gear. Plus, spare parts are easy to assemble.

Fast, comfortable, safe: The automatic battery vent allows for easy charging processes, based on a plug and play interface on the tailgate of the truck. This means that the driver doesn't have to open the door or the battery cover in order to charge it.
The Linde BlueSpot™ enhances safety during operation as the LED spot makes the forklift truck noiselessly visible.
Linde's range of lift mast variants find the perfect balance between lifting height and overall height. The range covers standard masts with a lift of up to 5650 mm, duplex masts (fully free lift) with a lift of up to 4145 mm, and triplex masts (fully free lift) with a lift of up to 6075 mm.
The optional high frequency on-board charging device allows for flexible and fast battery charging without the need for dedicated battery storage or a charging room. Its high efficiency, temperature-controlled charging, and automatic charge conservation and equalizing guarantee an energy-efficient charging process.
Fast and convenient battery replacement: At the touch of a button, the Linde hydraulic battery replacement system lifts the battery until it is 60% free of the truck, where it can be collected by a ceiling crane or a second truck. This option is available for E12 – E50 forklifts.
In counterbalanced forklift trucks, the use of the Safety Pilot helps to avoid tipping accidents
