With many energy saving features and reliable, quick replacement parts, these forklifts greatly reduce cost of ownership.

Reasons to choose the 1.6 and 2 tonne BE-X Series

High on comfort & efficiency

A comfortable operator is a productive operator. That’s why we’ve increased the cab space and added numerous functions that allow the operator to work more efficiently and comfortably.

  • A multifunctional digital cluster allows operators to check operating information in real time for safe and convenient equipment management.
  • The MCV lever is conveniently placed to the right of the operator to reduce movement and fatigue compared with the dashboard-fixed type.
  • Full-suspension Grammer seat has a seat belt switch, arm rests and an adjustable cushion to match the weight of the operator.
  • A higher seat height for better visibility and lower placed steps compared with conventional types for easy access.
  • Hydraulic boosted-type steering wheel has been reduced by 20mm for extra convenience and the wheel column can be tilted 12.5 degrees forwards or backwards to suit the operator.

High on safety features

The risk of accidents while working has been fundamentally eliminated using scientific vehicle body design and effective safety systems.

  • Anti-Roll back system prevents the forklift from rolling down a slope when the accelerator and brake pedal are not applied.
  • Operator Presence Sensing System (OPSS) restricts driving when the operator leaves their seat in order to prevent accidents.
  • A maximum travel speed can be set to meet the safety speed of the site. There is also a 3 km/h travel speed limiter when driving with elevated load option.
  • Front and rear wireless cameras help with the safe positioning of pallets during high-rack operation.
  • Rear grip with embedded horn allows the driver to stay comfortable during reverse driving and operate the horn quickly in case of an emergency.
  • Front and rear LED working lights and optional beacon lamp, blue spots and red zone lamps indicate movement for the benefit of surrounding workers.

High on productivity

Productivity has been increased by making controls and servicing easier, while energy usage has been reduced by using more efficient parts.

  • Energy efficiency has been improved by 8.2% compared with the 9F Series thanks to more efficient drive and axle assemblies.
  • A single-drive axle system, IP 54 motors and 48V batteries allows the machines to be used outdoors for greater convenience.
  • Batteries are placed between the front wheels and rear wheels to lower the body’s centre of gravity, providing greater driving and lifting stability.
  • Easy selection of driving and mast work speeds to match work conditions, with the use of up/down buttons in the cluster.
  • Optional quick charging, longer lasting lithium-ion batteries allow extended hours of continued operation on a single charge.
  • For improved controller system reliability that meets EU safety regulations, a waterproof and dust-proof IP65 large-capacity ZAPI Controller is installed.

Low on cost of ownership

BE-X Series electric forklifts have been designed to reduce costs using innovative energy saving features and reliable, durable and quick replacement parts.

  • Quick battery replacement from the side using a pallet truck, rather than expensive equipment like a crane.
  • Convenient battery charging by connecting a charger connector to a charging port, without the separation of battery cables connected to the frame.
  • Efficient hydraulic motor cooling system.
  • Safety warning sound and lamp indicator for low brake oil level, battery discharge, and high temperature in the controller and motor.
  • Waterproof and dustproof key switch increases the reliability of the electric/electronic system.
  • Sealed micro switches are used in the hydraulic control lever system, keeping it protected from outdoor dust and water for greater reliability.
