Features and benefits

High performance with advanced AC

The FR50’s advanced and intelligent AC drive and hydraulic motor help control critical functions to extend run times, eliminate motor brush checks or replacements, and deliver higher efficiency and longer life versus DC motors.

Dial in your application needs

Performance settings can be adjusted using the onboard dash keypad to dial in optimal performance parameters for your application needs. In addition to diagnostics, the keypad displays state-of-battery charge, time of day and travel speed.

Regenerative, maintenance-free braking

In addition to reversing the drive system to brake, the electromagnetic disc braking system provides smooth and consistent stops when releasing the brake pedal. Plus, it’s a regenerative system that re-captures current.

Fast and easy to service

Built-in analyzer provides data on fault detection and other diagnostics. The trucks’ design enables easy access to the control system and drive motor, drive unit, electrical disc brake, and steer-by-wire system, and facilitates fast wheel/tire changes.

Precise control of heavy loads

Oil flow is precisely controlled through a combination of the truck controller and the proportional control valve. That allows for smooth, full-feathering of hydraulic movements and minimal shocks, ideal if you’re handling sensitive or fragile materials.

Designed to battle operator fatigue

Help your operators function at their best, even over long shifts. They’ll appreciate the low step height, cushioned floorboard and pedals, padded cockpit, excellent visibility and intuitive steer-by-wire multi-function control for effortless maneuvering.
