The powerful E60 – E80 electric forklift models from Linde are designed for efficient and safe handling of heavy loads of up to 8,000 kilograms. The forklifts are driven by two powerful three-phase AC motors integrated into the compact axle with maintenance-free brakes. The electronic vehicle control as well as the precisely operable control elements such as the Linde Load Control and the double pedal control ensure the perfect interaction between man and machine. Linde’s energy management system also contributes to the high cost-effectiveness of the large electric forklifts.
Safety is paramount when dealing with loads weighing up to 8000 kilograms. The protective roof of the E60 – E80 electric forklift trucks combine with the cab's frame to form a large protective zone for the driver. The use of encapsulated lift mast profiles allows for good visibility while handling loads, and the automatic parking brake guarantees the ultimate in safety even while working on ramps. Plus, the safety features of this series are complemented by redundant controls, electronic traction control, and high residual load capacities, while low noise levels contribute to operational reliability.
Efficient, mostly tire-free working with a forklift truck at the highest performance level requires a high degree of operating comfort. This is why all control components of the E60 - E80 models are arranged directly around the driver and can be operated intuitively. The driver accelerates and changes the direction of travel by means of the double pedals, and all mast movements are sensitively carried out with the fingers moving the control levers of the Linde Load Control integrated into the armrest. This avoids unnecessary and physically strenuous movements. The seat and armrest unit are adjustable in multiple ways. In addition, the mast and axle are decoupled from the drive axle and driver's compartment by rubber bearings so that shocks and vibrations are not transmitted to the operator.
Precondition for the effective handling of heavy loads with the electric forklift trucks E60 - E80 is the perfect interaction of the powerful drive components with the operating concept, consisting of Linde Load Control and the double pedal control, which ensure the precise and fast control of all vehicle and lift mast movements. At the heart of the drive is the compact axle with two powerful, integrated three-phase AC motors, maintenance-free brakes and power units mounted directly on the axle. The trucks are equipped with the Linde Curve Assist as standard. When cornering, the system adjusts the driving speed depending on the steering angle. The performance characteristics of the truck can be adapted to the specific application requirements via three-stage adjustable driving dynamics.
Electric forklift trucks are exceptionally reliable thanks to the fully encapsulated drive and lift drive and the classic Linde electrical control protection, and water cooled precision parts ensure high availability even under extreme conditions. Extremely long maintenance intervals are the calling card of the E60 – E80 R model series. This is because the entire drive axle – including the three-phase motors, reduction gear, and oil bath disk brakes – and the mast and tilt cylinders are entirely maintenance-free. The first general service only needs to be carried out after 1000 operating hours, and the hydraulic oil only needs to be changed after 6000 hours. With their easily accessible service parts, the trucks are designed to ensure uninterrupted use.
|Model||Load capacity/Load||Load centre distance|
|E60||6.0 (t)||600 (mm)||16 / 16 (km/h)|
|E70||7.0 (t)||600 (mm)||16 / 16 (km/h)|
|E80||8.0 (t)||600 (mm)||16 / 16 (km/h)|
|E80/900||8.0 (t)||900 (mm)||16 / 16 (km/h)|
Charging access to the rear of the forklift means the trucks can be kitted out for even easier charging. This access features an active vent.
The truck can be equipped with one, two, or three additional hydraulic circuits, allowing for the connection and operation of other equipment.
A robust protective polycarbonate grill can be fitted to protect the roof of the driver's cab against damage and scratches.
A transparent sheet of armored glass can be installed to give better upward visibility.
The instrument panel can be supplied with a choice of joysticks for individual functions and a single multi-functional joystick.
