Linde Material Handling unveils electric forklift trucks with a load capacity of 6 to 8 tonnes


Over the past three years, Linde Material Handling (MH) has gradually modernised its entire range of electric counterbalance trucks, replacing models with more powerful, more efficient and more ergonomically sound equivalents. Now, the market leader in Europe is expanding its range of products in this segment even further. The new series Linde E60 to E80 comprises four models with load capacities ranging from six to eight tonnes, as well as one version with a load capacity of eight tonnes and a 900-millimetre centre of gravity. This series was unveiled for the first time at the "World of Material Handling" customer event held in Mainz, Germany — an event that spanned several weeks.

For many operating companies—such as those in the sensitive food industry—electrically powered trucks have become the solution of choice when investing in intralogistics thanks to their lack of emissions and quiet operation. At the same time, this segment is also seeing the trend for higher load capacity classes, with a view to handling larger volumes of goods per cycle and increasing productivity. Linde MH is meeting this growing demand head-on with its extensive new range of electric forklift trucks.
