Avoid the Red Diesel Restrictions with TCM Electric & Lithium-Ion Equipment

The Red Diesel Restrictions are fast-approaching. As of 1st April 2022, there will be new restrictions for Red Diesel use in Forklift Trucks, which means fuel costs for many applications are set to soar.

Have you thought about making the switch to Electric? CAM Fork Lift Trucks have a wide range of TCM Electric Forklifts with both wet cell battery and Lithium-Ion power source options available.

As the appointed TCM dealer for Yorkshire, CAM Fork Lift Trucks are committed to helping you find the most efficient and cost-effective battery choice for your operations.

Here’s more about Electric before the Red Diesel Restrictions…

Ready to take centre stage in the future of load handling operations, the TCM Electric series includes a wide variety of advanced features, such as a fully AC-powered system.

Higher per-charge operating hours and increased power, performance and operating speeds result in an exceptionally productive Forklift.

Our Electric range consists of the FB/FTB 1.4 – 2.0 3-4 Wheel Counterbalance Forklift, the FHB 2.5 – 3.5 and the FHB 4.0 – 5.5 4 Wheel Electric Counterbalance Forklift.

Have you considered Lithium-Ion?

Lithium-Ion batteries are a type of rechargeable fuel source featuring high energy density. With no memory effect, it means the batteries don’t need to be fully discharged before recharging – allowing the operator to opportunity charge giving them more flexibility.

Lithium-Ion popularity is growing in the Material Handling industry for battery-powered Electric vehicles, including Counterbalance Forklifts and Warehousing Equipment.

Compared to your standard battery alternatives such as lead-acid, Lithium-Ion batteries are more energy-efficient – they don’t need regular water topping and don’t produce any form of gas emissions.

Li-Ion batteries do have a higher initial acquisition cost than alternatives such as lead-acid wet cell batteries; however, as Li-Ion batteries are more energy-efficient, your business can, in fact, make considerable savings over the longer term.

Why choose Lithium-Ion?

Li-Ion batteries boast numerous benefits for businesses that choose to adopt them, including:

  • They use 30% less energy, contributing towards a lower TCO (total cost of operation).
  • They’re quick to charge and can also be opportunity-charged throughout the day, improving efficiency.
  • Lithium-Ion has a longer lifespan than other battery alternatives (such as lead-acid).
  • You don’t need to change batteries mid-shift, increasing productivity.
  • They don’t require maintenance or experience gassing.
  • There are no harmful emissions produced.
