11. Required Conditions for using the Product
Level flooring- smooth surface, Leveled properly, & No Pits.
Pay load capacity :- (Load) should conform to the residual capacity of the stacker at
The pallet size (Std.) : 800 X 1200 or 1000 X 1200 or 1200 X 1200
Bottom beam in the racks for having more flexibility in using the stacker while storing
Adequate span length of the racks so that enough space between the adjacent loads
for easy entry of straddles while using straddle stackers.
Minimum 100 mm clearance should be available over the load in the racking.
Adequate Aisle Width (From Pallet to Pallet)
Pallet Overhang should not be more than Designed Overhang
Adequate Door Height or Under Pass Height ; For Closed Mast Height.
Clear height of roof or ceiling- height ; For Extended Mast Height.
Maximum Rack Level Height should be 200 mm below the maximum lift height.
Pallet entry height should be more than the fork lowered height.
12. Key Performance Characteristics
Important for the Usage of the Equipment.
Battery power consumption :-
Battery life - Typically 1000 charging cycles .which means 1000 shifts i.e. 1000
days i.e. say 3.33 years.
Free lift :- up to 2350 mm with Max Close ht 6500 mm.
AC drive :-
Reduces battery power consumption.
Increases battery life. Other benefits over DC.
Excellent Performance at Gradient .
Josts Offers the Higher Residual Capacity at the Maximum elevated height.
13. Key Performance Characteristics
Powerful 3 phase AC Drive motor with improved torque capability.
Low Center of Gravity ensures good safety & stability to truck.
Indigenously designed forklift with rigid chassis – In built robustness.
Aesthetically designed Counterweight – Adequate load balance and improved
Robust and Rigid canopy provides Adequate Protective Safety to operator against falling
Good Travel Speed And Gradability.
Less Wearing Parts & Easy Maintenance with AC Technology.
Longer continuous operation due to better heat balance.
Less Operating Cost due to Less Energy Consumption.
A longer work cycle due to lower current amperage requirement ensures longer battery
Precise Control Of Speed with Variable Frequency Drive.
Reduced noise levels.
Hose burst valve – Slow And Smooth Landing of Mast Carriage & Forks
Energy saving with the Regenerative breaking.
14. Key Performance Characteristics
Improved battery life due to the longer intervals between recharges.
Ergonomically designed operator’s cabin space with the ample leg room.
Easily Reachable Hydraulic Functions – Operator’s Comfort.
Power Steering gives the advantage of excellent steering conditions with the fatigue
Adjustable steering for relaxed operation.
Adjustable operator’s seat with single degree of freedom.
Articulating steering axle to enable the truck comfortably overcome pits and bumps
upto 20 mm without loss of stability.
Specially designed steering axle to provide steering upto 100 degrees.
Incorporation of special taper roller bearings in the Steering axle to withstand impact
loads in outdoor application.
LED Lights – Better Illumination , Power Saving.
15. Battery VS Diesel Forklift Trucks
Electric Forklifts: Electric forklifts are ideal for working indoors in many types of
businesses. Electric forklifts can be operated outdoors, typically
only on dry, well paved surfaces.
Internal Combustion (IC) Forklifts: IC forklifts are ideal for outdoor use, but if fueled
by propane, they can be used indoors or outdoors.
ELECTRIC LIFT TRUCKS
•Produce zero emissions
•Reduced maintenance cost
•Longer economic life
•Lower noise levels
•Lower fueling cost
•Aisle width requirements are less than an IC forklift
•Higher initial cost
•Typically not suited for outdoor use
•Less aggressive lift and ramp speeds
•Limited product availability over 15,000 lbs
•Downtime due to battery charging / changing
•Need for forklift battery changing station
•Poor training or negligence can ruin the battery
IC LIFT TRUCKS
•Lower initial cost
•Better for long runs, high speed and ramps
•Capacity capabilities of over 35,000 lbs
•Better suited for multi-shift operations
•Easy to refuel
•Indoor use requires good ventilation
•Higher maintenance than electric forklifts
•Higher fueling cost than electric forklifts
16. Battery VS Diesel Forklift Trucks
Type of Forklift
Per Hr. Consumption 3 3
price (Rs./unit) @ 9 65
Total per hour 27 195
Total Monthly hours working Per month
(all 3 shifts- 6hrs X 30 days = 500)
Total Power Cost 14,580 105,300
17. Lubes Cost Virtually NIL
Lube Oil for Engine, Transmission,
Hydraulics Cost Extra, Approx 10% of
Diesel Cost approx 10,530/-
Nil, Except Battery, Which requires cleaning and
checking and can be done off the machine
Requires Periodical maintenance at every 250
Hrs to change oil, Filters etc.
Ease of maintenance
Exceptionally good,- due electronic diagnostic
available as standard feature. Faults are
displayed and rectified easily
Faults have to be identified manually by
trained mechanic there by increases downtime
Availability of Equipment
Maximum- due less maintainable parts, moving
Always Critical, as lots of items are moving
and requires constant maintenance
Suitability for F&B Industry
Ideally suitable due to Zero pollution, Best
suited for Inside operation
Diesel Soot poses serious hazards and not
suitable for F&B Industry
Noise, Operator Fatigue
Virtually Silent machine and Vibration free.
Drastically increases operator comfort and
Noisy with lots of Vibration. Causes worker
fatigue and reduces work efficiency
Speed Of Operation
Meets typical in-Factory traffic safety
Due to high speed, there are chances
accident, often operators tends to exceed
factory limit of 12km/hr
Monthly Total cost of fuel / power +
lubricants per month
Saving Per Forklift Per Month 90,720
Saving Per Forklift Per Year 10,88,640
Advantage Battery Forklift
Battery VS Diesel Forklift Trucks
18. Advantages- Battery Disadvantages- IC
Operation and maintenance costs Low – with no need for as many
services and overhauls
Higher since engine generate
heat & smoke
Overall life span Longer as very less breakdowns Shorten as more breakdowns
Emissions Negligible Very high
Noise pollution and vibration Negligible Negligible
Fuel consumption 2 -3 units per hr.
(approx 20 Rs)
(Approx 160 Rs)
Turning radius Less High
Compactness High Less
Self Diagnosis Yes No
