The new FR-E features a 72/80V AC powered 2-speed hydrostatic drive with variable motor rpm control and an AC lift motor.

While maintaining all of the functionality of its IC counterpart, the new FR-E features a 72/80V AC powered 2-speed hydrostatic drive with variable motor rpm control and an AC lift motor. The FR-E also includes Hoist’s new Smartscreen Technology operator interface, providing real time operational information as well as an onboard capacity calculator, real-time diagnostics, reference libraries and much more.

The FR-E is provided as a complete IC alternative solution that includes batteries (2), a 3-phase stand-alone charger for deep cycle charging, as well as an onboard single phase charger for opportunity charging, in addition to charging flexibility and product mobility.

With roots in the electric-powered high-capacity forklift industry dating back 120 years, Hoist’s FR-E represents the latest product release in Hoist’s next generation series of electric trucks. Other next generation AC powered products include models historically thought of as IC only, such as high-capacity pneumatic tire trucks (P-Series) and the recently introduced Hoist T-Series terminal tractor. Both PE- and TE-Series product releases are coming soon!
