ABOUT THE EFL181:
The EFL 181 Li-Ion forklift is the next generation, entry-level forklift from EP Equipment. It was designed to replace Diesel forklifts on the yard, in the countryside and for everybody with occasional usage. The main features of the trucks are the integrated charger for simple charging at every standard power outlet, the Li-Ion battery as a maintenance free power source as well as the big front tyres that allow usage on uneven floors and in the yard.

APPLICATION:
The main applications of the EFL 181 Li-Ion forklift are building sites as well as small companies with the occasional need of a forklift truck. The EFL 181 is always available due to its maintenance free Li-Ion Battery and the integrated charger, making it the perfect truck for short term rental applications.

FEATURES:
The EFL 181 forklift comes with a small and compact 48V / 150Ah Li-Ion battery, developed and produced by EP Equipment. Due to its compact size, the small truck offers are large legroom and ergonomic workspace. The Li-Ion Battery provides opportunity charging. And it communicates via Can-Bus with the truck to ensure an efficient usage of the truck at all times.

  • On-board Charger | The on-board charger allows the truck to be charged anytime and anywhere. The integrated charger allows charging at every standard power outlet.
  • Improved Breaking System | The breaking distance from the pedal of EFL 181 has been shortened compared to previous trucks to ensure a more comfortable operation of the truck while operating it.

FAQs:

  • Is this a 3 wheel or 4 wheel trucks? | CPD20L2: 3 wheel , EFL181: 4 wheel
  • Is this front-wheel-drive? | Yes, all these trucks are of front-wheel drive trucks.
  • Is this twin motor drive? | L1 = single drive. It is done by a single motor and differential, very similar to our IC trucks. L2 = dual drive. A separate drive motor on both front wheels
  • How can we still get stability with a lighter battery? | If you look at our five-ton truck, which is a traditional model, we just add weights in the battery container. The battery is smaller and lighter and we add weight at the bottom of the battery to compensate for it. With the EFL and the L1, they have been designed as a lithium integrated truck. With the l2 the whole design of the counterweight is different to have more weights on different places. We have a 2 piece counterweight. We compensate for the weight of the lighter battery by putting more weight in at other places.
  • Is the EFL181 drive motor a DC motor? | EFL181 is an AC motor.
  • Do you consider to install a dual pedal drive system for L2? Means no hand control forward/reverse selection switch? | No. We’re not planning to change that as a factory standard by having a gas pedal and a brake pedal. What has been done by one of our dealers itself on the L2 is to install the second pedal. If you are interested please contact your sales contact, we can share information on it how it’s being done.
  • How about the turning radius? | CPD20L2:1585mm , EFL181:1920mm You can download the spec-sheets of all our products with the relevant VDI data from the website.
  • Does the CPD20L2 have an integrated charger? | No. The only truck forklift truck with an integrated charger is the EFL181.
  • Is the side shift integrated? | All of these trucks can be ordered with external sideshift or integrated side shift. The nominal capacity is then reduced with 100kg. External sideshift has the advantage of easy replacement in case of damage. Integrated side shift has the advantage of less loss of capacity and better view. The ones stock in Europe, they always have an integrated side shift and mostly 4th valve in case you want to add another attachment later. Additionally, we offer a fork positioner. Compact model, good view, good price. You don’t have to fit it locally yourself. You get it fitted from our factory, complete and running.
  • Is it possible to connect fleet manager to the EFL181 in a simple way, same as the L2? | Yes. The telematics system is connected to the li-ion batteries and can be equipped on any max range truck.
  • How does the truck perform with extra hydraulics and attachments? | The capacity of the pump motor for different truck types is given on the spec sheets. For attachments with bigger oil flow, the oil flow parameter setting can be changed to fit the need. Note that standard multiple use of hydraulic functions is locked for safety reasons.
  • What is the residual capacities? | High lifting heights are not our strength. If you want to buy and 11 meters reach trucks, there’s other people who can do that better than us. We provide you the equipment that simply works.
