HC Forklift America Corporation (HCFA), a subsidiary of Hangcha Group, has announced the new XE Series Electric Lithium-Ion Pneumatic Forklift with a 4,000 lb to 7,600 lb capacity. The new XE series of lithium-ion pneumatic forklifts was designed to provide operators with a true lithium-ion alternative to internal combustion pneumatic forklifts. The integrated 80 V lithium-ion forklift features lift speeds, travel speeds, gradeability and ground clearance.

Different applications require different equipment. Hangcha designed the new XE series to complement HCFA’s existing lithium-ion powered forklifts in the 4,000 lb to 7,600 lb load capacity range. By adding the XE series, Hangcha now provides solutions for tight indoor applications, compact indoor/outdoor applications and rugged indoor/outdoor applications with the X series, XC series and the XE Series Electric Lithium-Ion Forklifts respectively.
