Indoor-outdoor electric forklift series

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

The newest Noblelift Lithium Iron Phosphate LFP/LiFePO4 electric 60Q and 70Q Series forklift is IP4 Waterproof.

Meant for indoor-outdoor applications it is emissions-free, cost-effective, and designed for energy proficiency. 

Available in 6,000- to 7,000-pound load capacities with a double- or triple-stage mast of up to 255” (21.25 ft), the Noblelift Q series lithium-iron forklifts deliver reduced energy consumption and faster cycle times to help warehouses move large inventories efficiently.

The iron-phosphate battery is safer thanks to its more stable compound, which avoids overheating and or explosion. It is designed to perform for heavy duty applications with equivalent performances of the traditional IC trucks in the market.  

Compared to a lead-acid battery powered lift, it performs 10,000 cycles and only 2.5 hours charge vs. 1,000 to 1,500 cycles and eight hours to charge with eight hours cooling period. 

 The iron phosphate cells are also more compact and energy-dense than lead-acid, which allows them to be more efficient.

The battery is maintenance-free and does not require watering, gassing, and cooling down. To simplify the overall cost from lead-acid to lithium is, if your business only has one shift in which a forklift is used, a lead-acid battery that is well maintained with life expectancy of three to five years (1,500 cycles over 300 workdays per year). A lithium iron phosphate battery, in comparison, has a life expectancy of 10 years or more (10,000 cycles).  

Based in Des Plaines, IL., Noblelift North America manufactures a range of high-performance and low-maintenance counterbalanced sit-down forklifts and related equipment, including walkie stackers, walkie pallet jacks, scissor lifts and hand pallet jacks.
