Tackling rough terrain with Hangcha’s forklift

Lithium-ion forklift

Hangcha has announced the arrival of its new electric rough terrain forklifts powered by high-voltage lithium batteries.

The high-voltage lithium battery rough terrain forklifts range from 2.5 to 3.5t and feature as high performance as diesel one while enjoying zero-emission, reduced noise, and low total cost of ownership.

“We are extremely delighted and proud to be the first domestic company to introduce the high-voltage lithium battery rough terrain forklift,” says George Zhang, Deputy General Manager of Hangcha International.

“The new lithium-powered rough terrain forklifts adopt the mature lithium-ion technology developed by Hangcha while keeping those good designs in diesel ones to enable them to adapt to various road conditions.”

By adopting the design of high ground clearance, large passing angle, and wide-base deep tread tyres, its travel speed is up to 26km/h, lift speed is up to 660mm/s, and gradeability is up to 63 per cent.

The high-voltage lithium battery rough terrain forklifts range from 2.5 to 3.5t.
The high-voltage lithium battery rough terrain forklifts range from 2.5 to 3.5t.

Additionally, the differential mechanism lock and one-click switchover between double-drive mode and four-drive mode delivers ultimate traction despite the most severe weather conditions and rough operating surfaces.

The electrical connectors of the forklifts are specifically designed with waterproofing, while the high-voltage electrical components meet the IP67 standard for dust and water resistance to ensure reliability in indoor and outdoor operational environments.

The lithium-powered rough terrain forklift features a battery of up to 317V/150Ah, and the mature lithium technology outperforms and provides operators with several key advantages.

These advantages include:

  • Fastest charging time to reach full charge: 1.5 hours;
  • Long life cycle: after 4000 cycles charge and discharge – a retention rate of more than 75 per cent;
  • 90 per cent of the overall cost can be reduced compared with diesel forklift;
  • 25 per cent reduction in energy consumption upon permanent magnet synchronous system;
  • Zero emissions;
  • Reduced noise;
  • Maintenance-free battery packs.

The new lithium-powered rough terrain forklifts can overtake any obstacles, no matter how hard the conditions are. They are perfect in construction sites, farming areas, mining, energy, forestry industries, etc.

Hangcha now offers a comprehensive range of high-voltage forklifts, including the XH series with a high-voltage capacity of up to 48t, as well as the XH series empty container handler and the 45t capacity reach stacker.
