Phil Ireland, Senior Product Strategy Manager for Counterbalance Solutions at Yale

“The ERP80VN is the first Yale electric truck that can match the performance and productivity of a Yale ICE in pure all-electric form.”
Yale Europe Materials Handling further strengthens its electric truck offering with the launch of the 8 tonne lithium-ion counterbalance truck. The new Yale® ERP80VN provides high productivity levels comparable to Yale ICE (Internal Combustion Engines) trucks of similar capacity.

Designed for high-intensity operations, the ERP80VN has a load centre of 900mm making it directly comparable in many respects to the GDP80VX9 ICE truck, while performing at a low noise level of 69 dBA. The agility and manoeuvrability of the high-powered ERP80VN allows for precise and responsive load handling, achieving fast lifting and lowering speeds, as well as quick acceleration and travel speed.


The ERP80VN offers opportunity charging, and with strategically placed chargers can support a three-shift operation. The truck can reach a full state of charge from fully flat in under two hours. The lithium-ion battery pack, which has a net capacity of 50kw/hr with a high system efficiency under full load, can complete a full eight hour shift while consistently carrying heavy loads.
