Raymond introduces outdoor electric lift trucks

New models offer emissions-free electric performance and outdoor capability

The Raymond Corporation, a global manufacturer of intralogistics solutions and a recognized innovator in material handling equipment introduces two products designed to provide exceptional performance while addressing the need for sustainable material handling solutions: the 4800 and 4810 80-volt sit-down counterbalanced trucks. The new pneumatic series offers all the needed capacities between 4,000 and 11,000 pounds.

“Both of these machines are designed specifically for outdoor applications,” said Tim Rice, product manager, of The Raymond Corporation. “This makes them perfect for lumberyards, big-box stores, and building material suppliers, as well as for container yards, agricultural or commodity applications — any customer who’s interested in an emissions-free, low-maintenance all-electric lift truck but is unwilling to compromise on performance, indoor/outdoor capability and ease of operation.”

Both models give users an ergonomically designed operator station featuring a full-suspension and fully adjustable seat with an attached armrest and fingertip hydraulic controls with factory side-shift. For optimum comfort in any environment, a variety of enclosed or partially enclosed cabin options are available. Well-placed controls — include a power select function that allows operators to optimize power output based on the specific application. To support various applications, customization is available to make the most of the machine, including forklift attachments. Out front, the open-view mast allows for exceptional visibility, increasing operator comfort and confidence.

In addition to offering unmatched emissions-free performance, the 4800 and 4810 models help owners control operating costs and maximize uptime through features such as low-maintenance wet disc brakes and powerful rechargeable batteries that require no spark plugs, no tuneups, and no scheduled oil changes. The energy regeneration system, standard on both models, increases run-time by putting energy back into the battery during plugging, coasting, and braking.

“In almost every industry we serve, there’s a growing interest in more sustainable operations,” Rice said. “We’re seeing an increasing number of users switching from conventionally powered lift trucks to electric trucks. For any lift truck user interested in converting to an all-electric fleet, the 4800 and 4810 models make perfect sense. These are fully capable indoor/outdoor machines, which have the features to not only help meet sustainability goals but also help optimize overall performance through integration with iWAREHOUSE and other Raymond telematics solutions.”
