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
