HC Forklift America Corporation (HCFA), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hangcha Group, announced the XH Series High Voltage Lithium-ion Pneumatic Forklift with a 26,000-36,000lb load capacity. This innovative series represents a breakthrough in high-capacity forklifts. Designed around high-voltage (541V std. / 608V opt.) lithium-ion battery packs, the XH Series can outperform comparable I.C.-powered high-capacity forklifts. These forklifts offer reduced noise levels, zero emissions, and faster travel/lift speeds. The XH Series High Voltage Lithium-ion Pneumatic Forklifts also provide owners with a total cost of ownership that is 90% less than comparable I.C.-powered high-capacity forklifts.
“Hangcha again is staying ahead in the Lithium-ion Material Handling Market Place. Super power, low energy usage, high performance, and exceptional value come together in the new high-voltage XH Series from Hangcha Group. This is lithium at its best!” Frank Russo, Vice President of Sales and Dealer Development
The maintenance-free, high-voltage Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery packs allow the forklift to rapid charge to 100% in under 1.5 hours and opportunity charge as needed. The battery packs, controller, and electric motors are also water-cooled. Combined with the IPX4 and IP67 water and dust ratings, these forklifts will reliably work in harsh operational environments. This makes it perfect for steel mills, ports, and lumber yards.
As with all Hangcha’s equipment, the XH Series High Voltage Lithium-ion Pneumatic Forklift is designed with safety in mind for both operators and mechanics. The XH Series features high voltage interlock, insulation monitoring, and automatic deceleration while turning. These forklifts also feature an MSD maintenance switch allowing mechanics to power down the machine with one click.
Faster travel & lift speeds, zero emissions, rapid charging, and a 90% lower total cost of ownership than a comparable high-capacity I.C. pneumatic forklift are just a few of the reasons that the new XH Series High Voltage Lithium-ion Pneumatic Forklift is helping Hangcha to re-imagine power.
