EFL Medium Series

2.5-3.5T 4-Wheel Lithium Yard Forklift

The new EFL Medium Series from EP is the 2.5-3.5-tonne Lithium-ion forklift series with a single purpose: replacing diesel yard trucks. It has the same low price, tough chassis and tested components - but in place of the diesel engine, there's just a Lithium-ion battery and silent electric motors.

As standard, the EFL Medium Series comes standard with a 4500mm triplex container mast, with all the functionality needed for yard operations - freelift for unloading shipping containers, tilt and sideshift for unloading trucks, and a wide field of view for safety. 

The EFL series is IPX4 rated and that protects the trucks from splash of water from different angles. The waterproof design allows the trucks to be operated outdoors, even in the rain.

Thanks to its cutting-edge 80V/205Ah LFP battery, the EFL252 has energy costs 30% less than an comparable lead-acid forklift, and 50% less than a diesel yard truck. Combined with the low-maintenance AC electric drivechain, this delivers huge savings in long-term TCO. Developed inhouse by EP, the battery is maintenance-free, emissions-free and impact-safe.

The EFL252 is a smart solution for companies looking to get the most out of their operating budget. 


Due to the Li-Ion technology build into the L1 counterbalance truck, the machine is more powerful than most of its competitors. It is water protected and can be used outdoors also in the rain. Loading and unloading is where the L1 plays out its strength.
