Meet the 2016 International Forklift of the Year (IFOY) award winning electric forklift. The three wheel design offers maximum maneuverability in tight spaces.
The ECB 16/18’s core technologies include state-of-the-art batteries, controls and motors. These core technologies are designed, tested and built by BYD as an integrated system. This allows the ECB 16/18 to achieve the highest levels of performance, endurance and reliability.
With rapid, restriction-free charging, BYD forklifts operate across multiple shifts without the need to charge or replace batteries. Built using iron-phosphate technology, each forklift includes a state-of-the-art Battery Management System and the longest battery warranty in the industry.
BYD forklifts are comfortable and intuitive to operate, allowing each of our fleet partners a competitive advantage in all industries — indoor or outdoor, from warehouse to airport. Click below to see the BYD forklifts hard at work.
charging in forklifts
Charging a BYD forklift is as easy as charging an electric car. Simply open the charger door on the side of the forklift and plug in the charging gun. An electronic “hand shake” between the charger and the port initiates power flow. An additional sensor prevents the truck from moving until the charger is fully disconnected.
Controls & Levers
Adjustable armrest with highly sensitive, latest-generation controls lift and shift loads at desired speeds. Varying finger pressure intuitively controls the speed of movements. 4 levers provide precise and sensitive control of all truck functions. Ease of use increases productivity and driver wellbeing.
Ergonomic and comfortable with extended backrests that provide lumbar support and are suitable for tall drivers. Armrests options include additional storage, convenience tray and charging ports. All sit-down models can be configured with fingertip or lever controls.
BYD’s lithium iron phosphate batteries are the industry’s safest, longest-lasting and most versatile power source. Founded as a battery company in 1995, BYD is now one of the world’s largest battery manufacturers, producing 40 GWh of battery capacity in 2019 and ramping up to produce 65 GWh in 2020.
Industry leading runtimes combined with fast anytime charging gives you a true one battery 24/7 solution. What will you do with the space your battery room is taking up?
BYD manufactures the forklift, battery and the charger. This provides seemless integration between the 3 systems. No headaches, no pointing fingers.
