The Lithium Battery powered BYD Forklift Truck

BYD has been revolutionising the rechargeable battery industry since 1995 in industries such as consumer electronics, energy storage, transportation and now the material handling industry. Compared to traditional electric forklifts, BYD’s extraordinary technology turns the industry inside-out by delivering a single-battery multi-shift solution.

Designed to work together with its disruptive battery technology, BYD forklifts challenge the status-quo; creating a new standard of what operators expect from an electric forklift.

Indoors and Outdoors

We made these forklifts so durable that they operate indoors and outdoors; rain or shine. Each forklift features a waterproof sealed battery pack that can be operated in even the toughest conditions.

Non-Toxic Batteries

Unlike Lead-Acid and most Lithium-ion batteries, BYD’s chemistry features environmentally friendly and non-toxic ingredients. This means no ventilation needed, no water needed and no worry needed.

Award Winning Forklift

The industry has voted. BYD was awarded the prestigious IFOY Award in 2016. These world-class forklifts are designed and built for reliability and operational savings.

Industry’s Best Warranty

Included in each forklift is a warranty that will make others jealous. 10-year warranty on batteries, 5-year warranty on drive axle, and 3-year warranty on all remaining components.
