The new CPD20L1(S) is the most advanced 2-tonne Lithium-ion forklift on the market. With a fast-charging battery, 4.8-metre container mast and zero emissions, this truck offers an electrifying performance as standard. The premium "S" spec adds full AC motors and IP54 ingress protection - suitable for outoors operation, on uneven terrain, in any weather.
At the heart of the CPD20L1(S) lies a 48V/360Ah Lithium-ion battery and a digital BMS, both developed inhouse by EP. The next-generation battery delivers astonishing performance; accepting a 100% charge in 2.5 hours, or a 7% supercharge in under 10 minutes. By opportunity-charging during lunch breaks and shift changes, the CPD20L1(S) can operate around the clock - making it a genuine contender to replace LPG/diesel yard trucks.
The LFP battery is very efficient, cutting net electricity consumption by up to 30% over an equivalent lead-acid battery. It is also maintenance-free, emission-free, impact-safe and rated for over 2000 discharge cycles.
The L1 series trucks were the first 4-wheel forklifts to be designed from a clean sheet around Lithium-ion battery technology. With no bulky combustion engine or lead-acid battery, EP was able to optimise the chassis for stability and low weight. The CPD20L1(S) weighs just 3280kg, yet boasts significantly improved handling and safety margins over previous-generation forklifts.
A range of features are provided for operator comfort and ease-of-use, including automatic rollback control, an intelligent park brake and a horn button on the B-pillar for use when reversing. The cabin has a spacious yet ergonomic layout, and comes complete with a water-bottle holder and USB phone charging port.
The CPD20L1(S) is backed by a 2-year EP warranty, with a 5-year warranty on the battery.
