Other features include direct electric drive and a choice of Lithium ion battery pack to keep the overall weight below three tonnes or AGM batteries which are a little less expensive but take the overall weight above three tonnes. Either battery pack can be quickly removed and replaced for charging, or shipping if desired. New chassis mounted fork pockets make for easier loading or cross site transport.
