Li-ion Forklift Truck 2.5/3.0/3.5T
About The EFL Series
EFL series is great tool that combines the advantages of IC trucks and electric trucks. By replacing the diesel engine with a 205AH li-ion battery, It offers the driver a large operator compartment, big wheels, strong chassis, and standard components at a great price, while the Li-Ion battery and the electric motors help to reduce carbon footprint, running cost and decrease the energy cost.
EFL series is suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage even on uneven roads or in the rain due to its big wheels and waterproof design, which makes it perfect tools to handle in beverage, logistics, and construction industries.
BIG TYRES & HIGH GROUND CLEARANCE
IPX4 RATED WATER-PROTECTED DESIGN
OPPORTUNITY CHARGING & FLEXIBILITY
EFL series adapts LFP Li-ion battery that prevents the battery from self-ignition and ensures safety operation. It supports opportunity charging so it can be charged at preferable time during the day without disrupting working schedules.
What are the size of batteries available for EFL 302?
Can the EFL 302 be installed with a higher battery capacity? If yes, what’s the maximum?
If you do need a higher battery capacity, CPD30L1 is quipped with a 540Ah battery, which is 2.5 times larger than the EFL 302. It is a 3.0 ton forklift truck more suitable for high frequent forklift usage.

Is the EFL 302 water-proof? Is it IP rated?
In terms of possible breakage of components, we try to steer the water away.
In general, if it is meant to be outside all the time, we recommend you to order the truck with a cabin because it’s better for the truck and the driver.
Can we have EFL302 in cold stores?
What is the recommended lowest temperature zone for li-ion batteries?
We did orders for some of the lithium forklifts for our market here in Saudi Arabia, we started promoting the product with our existing customer mainly in petrochemicals plants. And the worries are overheating and explosion.
The environment temperature should be below 45 degrees. If the battery itself gets warmer than 65 degrees Celcius, the BMS will give a failure code and switch off the truck.
Note that the truck is not an Atex truck.
Is EFL 302 equipped with a Telematics system?
Is the telematics on a SIM card or wifi?
Looks a good idea to have a Telematics – more in detail – how to get access and show to the customers?
We have a training session on Telematics to show you. Connect us on Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/epequipment/ to stay tuned on upcoming EP online training sessions and ask your sales contact to put you on the waiting list for next training.
On the website, you also find a specific session for telematics at https://ep-equipment.com/telematics/.
Is this cost built-in for SIM?
Can EFL 302 be charged on a regular 220V outlet?
What’s the warranty on the battery and how can we repair these batteries on the customer side?
How much on average to charge the truck based on the same hours over five years?
With petrol, we will spend 25-30 Euros a day So we still easily save 20,000 Euros.
How many times and how long per opportunity charge should be done for it to last a 24-hour job?
The VDI test shows how long the EFL 302 can drive on one battery charge. If your customer does not do 60 cycles/hour, but only 30 cycles/hour, then the truck is able to run double that time. If the truck doesn’t lift 4 meters in the warehouse, only 2 meters, then it can drive 50% more. So some rough indications can be given.
It needs around 2.5 hours to fully charge the battery of EFL 302, which can split up in blocks of 10 or 15 minutes. A 10-15 minutes or half an hour charge during the day and a full charge in night can get you across the 24-hour work.
Remember to use the Palletexpress video as a sample. People from Palletxpress use our CPD30L1 and the telematics reports from those machines show that we can run them 24 hours a day on 1 battery. This reference case is also in the li-ion battery and Telematics training.
If the customer has an application like PalletXpress, you might consider the 30L1 with a bigger battery. If your customer just wants a forklift for up and down use, then take the EFL 302.
Do you have an estimate on the cost of transformation (replacing the diesel engine with li-ion battery)?
What are the main advantages of EP Equipment Li-ion forklift against HC Li-ion forklift？What benefits to promote to our client?
EP is known for its revolutionary design and originality that other Chinese competitors do not have. And EP is also the first manufacturer to build a lithium counterbalance truck. Although Heli and Hangcha are our biggest competitors in this field, there is no one who can do what EP is able to do at the moment.
In Eastern Europe, diesel trucks are still very big. Chinese competitors are still very popular there.
There seems to be a lot of talk about Hangcha. How does EP compare at price with the lithium Hangcha?
On a product level, the biggest benefit of EP is that we are at the front of the market with our innovations and own design. The rest of the market is the only copy. We keep innovating valuable models with a reasonable margin at competitive prices. EP has its own lithium technology.
On price level, our EFL 302 offers the best price on the market.
In conclusion, EP stands out from all the Chinese forklift manufacturers from the design concept, marketing support to after-sales support.
Where is the EP’s position compared with HELI on lithium technology?
