BYD to Showcase Forklifts, Charger at ProMat
BYD will showcase its lineup of forklifts and a game-changing battery charger at ProMat, the largest industry expo for manufacturing, distribution and supply chain equipment.
BYD’s motto, “Forklifts Simplified” applies to its entire lineup of safe, reliable and proven forklifts built around BYD’s industry leading iron phosphate battery.
“BYD’s material handling vehicles can operate across multiple shifts without the need to change or replace batteries,” said Terry Rains, BYD’s Director Forklift Division, North America. “Each forklift includes a leading-edge Battery Management System and “at 10 years” it is the longest battery warranty in the business.”
The ProMat show takes place April 8-11 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
The BYD forklift lineup ranges in load capability from 3,500 pounds up to 10,700 pounds. All feature state-of-the-art 80-volt battery technology, industry proven motors and controllers, LED lights (front-rear-strobe), LCD display, 4-Way Hydraulic Valve, rear grab-handle with horn, and rearview mirrors.
Standard safety features include corner speed reduction, ramp hold assist, operation presence sensor, and orange seatbelt interlock. BYD’s forklifts make for a better work environment with less noise, air pollution and vibration than those using internal combustion engines. They also have fewer parts, lowering maintenance costs.
BYD will also unveil its new 110-volt -plug and play- charger. Instead of wrestling with a cumbersome 480 volt charging system, customers will be able to plug in a forklift into a standard socket just like a small appliance.
“This is rental re-invented,- Rains said. -The 110-volt charger creates a new charging solution for customers who may not use their forklift for an entire 8-hour shift.”
