One of the world's largest electric automobile manufacturers, BYD has used its expertise to design a line of forklifts capable of meeting the most demanding needs of the material handling industry, while delivering the best return on investment in the industry. With their iron-phosphate battery, BYD electric forklifts are the first in the industry that can operate 21 hours a day on a single battery. This new eco-friendly and biodegradable battery requires no maintenance and comes with the best warranty in the industry.
Chariots GCS is BYD's exclusive distributor for Eastern Canada. We are proud to represent the most technologically advanced line of forklifts in the world.
BYD Ltd. is one of the largest privately held high-tech companies in China. Since it was established in 1995, the company has rapidly developed strong expertise in rechargeable battery technologies and has become a tireless advocate of sustainable development, successfully developing renewable energy solutions on a global scale. Today, BYD owns facilities around the world and employs close to 230,000 people. BYD manufactures cars, heavy-duty trucks, trains, city buses, school buses, forklifts, and energy storage units.
As the world's 3rd largest electric car manufacturer, BYD has used its expertise to design a range of forklifts that can meet the most demanding needs of the material handling industry. BYD is the only manufacturer to design the forklift, the battery, and its charger. This advantage makes it possible to control all the electrical, mechanical and energy parameters of the forklift.
BYD offers PMW20 pallet trucks with a capacity of 4,500 lbs and a range of ECB 16/18, ECB-25/27, ECB 35/50/70 counterbalanced forklifts (3,500 lbs to 15,700 lbs).
With their iron-phosphate battery, BYD electric forklifts are the first in the industry that can operate 21 hours a day on a single battery. This new eco-friendly and biodegradable battery requires no maintenance for 20 years.
BYD forklifts can be operated over three shifts and require only one hour of recharging per shift. This extraordinary performance translates into productivity gains as well as economic gains, resulting in the best return on investment in the industry. This return on investment is calculated based on the price of energy and reduced maintenance costs.
Even when compared to other lead-acid or lithium battery electric forklifts, BYD forklifts offer substantial energy savings, as they require only one hour of recharging instead of eight. In addition, with BYD, you avoid all battery maintenance costs (no water refills, no battery handling between shifts, and no recharge cycles). BYD takes away all the operational hassles and safety issues associated with traditional forklift batteries. In addition, this zero-emission battery operates in all weather conditions, sustaining its performance level from -40°C to 40°C.
BYD's iron-phosphate batteries offer a significant gain in safety when compared to acid batteries and internal combustion forklifts. Evaluated by extremely rigorous safety tests, BYD's sealed batteries are the safest in the industry. Capable of withstanding severe impact and crushing, they remain safe when punctured by sharp objects such as nails or screws. In addition, iron-phosphate batteries will not overheat or explode even when exposed to extreme heat.
These features are all backed by the best warranty in the industry, 10 years/20,000 hourson the battery, 3 years on the engine transmission unit and 1 year on everything.
BYD IS A LIFETIME MAINTENANCE-FREE BATTERY THAT REQUIRES ONLY ONE HOUR OF RECHARGING PER SHIFT.
Safety of BYD forkliftd
Another benefit of BYD lithium iron phosphate batteries is the rigorous safety testing that all batteries undergo, making them the safest in the industry. Designed to withstand heavy impact and crushing, they remain safe when punctured by sharp objects such as nails or screws. Additionally, lithium-iron-phosphate batteries do not react erratically or explode when exposed to extreme heat, in the event of a fire.
