Why choose an electric counterbalanced truck?

A counterbalanced truck is ideal to use when handling heavier loads. The truck counterbalances the weight of the load on the forks with a weight in the rear end of the truck, which increases the stability and driver safety. Our range of electric CBs are available with different battery capacities and lift capacity up to 8 t. Since the trucks are battery driven they’re suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage.

How much can a forklift actually lift?

Residual capacity guide

When buying a counterbalanced truck, you have to be sure the truck can handle your load. A truck's rated lift capacity is how heavy it can lift during perfect conditions. Within daily operations, the shape and weight of your load can differ, which impacts the actual lift capacity.

To make sure you buy the right truck for your operations we've created this guide, where we'll tell you what you need to know about a truck's residual capacity by answering these questions:


  • What is the difference between nominal capacity and residual capacity of a forklift?
  • What is a load centre and how does it influence load handling?
  • How much can a forklift actually lift?
  • How do you determine the right capacity for your forklift?
