EPS3 for 3-wheel counterbalance lift trucks
The EPS3 ensures energy savings of up to 10 % as compared to hydrostatic steerings
EPS4 for 4-wheel counterbalance lift trucks

Electro-mechanical steerings for counterbalance forklift trucks (class I)

ZF eSTEER EPS3 for electrical counterbalance lift trucks has set new standards for electromechanics steering systems. The electro-mechanical steering system replaces the commonly used hydrostatic steering in three-wheel front-drive counterbalance forklifts with a maximum lifting capacity of up to 2t. This allows electric forklift truck to follow the course plotted by the car industry over the last few years: the move from hydraulic steering to energy-efficient electro-mechanical steering.


  • Significant energy savings by power-on-demand
  • Steer by wire
  • Significantly reduced installation effort during forklift truck assembly
  • Low operating noise because of optimized gearing technology
  • Can be combined with eTRAC front-wheel drive for optimum efficiency and maneuverability
