Motive power specialist EnerSys Motive Power is now supplying four-tier battery banks which reduce significantly the footprint of lift truck battery change and charge operations, facilitate easy maintenance and maximise
When a change is required, the truck approaches the changing area, the battery is disconnected and a trained member of staff completes the change.
The BBE extracts the battery from the truck on to its on-board roller bed using a powerful extending electro-magnet and then pushes the battery into place for charging.
Batteries on the second, third and fourth levels of the charging bank are handled in the same way.
Changing batteries is a quick and simple one-man job which can be accomplished in around 90 seconds.
