Access Handling are pleased to be introducing the new, all electric, “E-Moffett” to users of forklifts in Scotland. As featured recently in Commercial Motors magazine, this brand new electric truck mounted forklift has an ULTRA LOW NOISE ENGINE. The E Moffett forklift also has  ZERO EMISSIONS, making it a very attractive fork truck for companies facing ever increasing restrictions on urban deliveries.

Want to know how the new all electric E-Moffett can help your business?” – There are many benefits available to you when you choose the E Moffett, here are some of the main ones….

  •  The E-Moffett meets TIER-4 emission regulations for construction and non-highway diesel powered vehicles.
  •  The E-Moffett offers ultra low noise and emission free opportunities to organisations faced with environmental noise and pollution restrictions in urban areas.
  •  Batteries for the E-Moffett are capable of well over 2000 cycles and should last the lifetime of the forklift.
  •  A full charge should give the E-Moffett forklift enough power to last 2.5 hours – even driving up steep slopes and ramps.
  • Fast Charge Cycle: A full deep charge cycle on the E-Moffett forklift takes only 6 hours and is recouped to a degree by regenerative braking. ( As truck mounted forklifts spend 90% of the time attached to the vehicle, it is envisioned that Moffett will offer trickle charging via normal electrics on the vehicle. )
  • Ground Mounting: All the E Moffett truck mounted forklifts can be equipped with ground mounting so they can be loaded and unloaded onto a vehicle without the operator having to remain in the driving seat.
  • No other charging equipment required. All charging equipment will be mounted on the forklift itself. The only other charger you’ll need is a 240v plug in the workshop!
Frank Doyle, Director at Access Mechanical Handling and our expert in Moffett truck mounted forklifts believes that this new E-Moffett will be attractive for many new customers throughout Scotland – and not just those who need a truck mounted forklift for night-time deliveries. “Being zero emission, the E-Moffett can also be used in warehouses and cold-stores where a diesel-powered forklift truck wouldn’t be allowed,” he says.
While truck operators remain wary of long-term residuals on hybrid or alternative fuel trucks, Moffett and Access plan to offer a number of acquisition options on it’s electric model, which should remove any similar wariness. “We’re happy to sell outright, or lease the machine,” says Frank. “And that means three, four or five year leases. We’re convinced of the long-term viability of the machine and we’re happy to take a residual risk if the customer doesn’t want to”
Moffett has also developed it’s electric model with an eye to the future in terms of it’s ability to be retro-fitted with upgraded battery technology. And while acknowledging that the electric-Moffett will cost up to 15% more than an equivalent diesel model, Frank insists: “The total cost of ownership will be lower. There’s no diesel, no oil to change and there’s reduced maintenance – it will have a considerably lower R&M figure compared to a diesel.”
