The EPS3 ensures energy savings of up to 10 % as compared to hydrostatic steerings
Electromechanical innovation for lift trucks & forklifts
Electromechanical steerings will soon replace the current hydrostatic steering systems in frontwheel-driven counterbalance lift trucks. The electric lift truck is thus consistently following the path trodden in the car industry a few years ago: substitution of hydraulic steering by energy-efficient electrical steering systems. ZF offers electromechanical solutions for both 3- as well as 4-wheel counterbalance lift trucks.
Significant energy savings in the driving cycle
Reduced energy consumption and longer battery life thanks to power-on-demand
Significantly reduced installation effort during lift truck assembly
Perfectly combinable with eTRAC front-wheel drive for optimum efficiency and maneuverability
Low operating noise because of optimized gearing technology
