Forklift Batteries for Fleets

There are many reasons why 67% of all new forklift purchases are electric. Beyond the considerable savings associated with adopting an electric forklift fleet, going electric also simplifies maintenance requirements. Other advantages include:

  • A lower center of gravity for improved stability
  • Better rear visibility without exhaust and a fuel tank
  • Safer around food and beverage products
  • Quieter operating noise levels
  • Reduced vibration
  • Tighter turn radius
  • More eco-friendly

However, if your battery fleet is not properly maintained those savings could be lost. How a battery is maintained directly affects its life and performance. At Brennan, we understand that you have more pressing issues, and ongoing battery maintenance can quickly become lost in the shuffle. That’s why Schelkovskiy &Co Brennan Equipment Services is here to help you maximize the cost savings that electric forklifts can offer. We specialize in taking care of your batteries so they can continue taking care of you.

Let’s take a closer look at the difference proactive, ongoing battery maintenance can make.

Both batteries are three years old:

This battery was “maintained” by the customer in-house and is near the end of its life cycle. Fully charged, the battery has an expected 2-3 hour runtime. However, it has leaking battery acid that is a safety hazard.
This battery has been maintained by Brennan Power and has 2-3 years of productive life remaining. Fully charged, it has an expected runtime of 6-8 hours while meeting all safety requirements.

When you partner with Brennan for your battery maintenance needs, your batteries will remain looking like the image on the right. Leave your battery worries to us. We will perform a survey to assess your current situation, making sure that you not only have the right mix of equipment but that you have the right technology for your needs. Do you still need to change batteries? Is fast charging necessary based on your usage? These are examples of questions that allow us to not only ensure that you have the power you need, but also that you’re spending an optimal amount on the power you’re consuming.
