FB FTB electric counterbalance trucks 2 backFirst-class ergonomics

Featuring specific characteristics centred around efficiency, comfort and safety, this electric counterbalance forklift is both versatile and cost-effective. 


Ergonomic placement is a huge contributing factor to the convenience and performance of this vehicle. The spring-force-optimised fingertip hydraulic controls are placed on the adjustable armrest to ensure perfect anatomical support and free movement for the driver. The pedals on the FB/FTB are designed, positioned and angled to reduce fatigue, regardless of a driver’s height or foot size, and the optional 360° steering wheel (on the FTB) allows the truck to turn and manoeuvre smoothly without stopping. 


Innovative design

With a spacious operator compartment, a long-handled grab bar and a curved side panel, the driver can access and exit the cabin confidently. The extended seat and steering column adjustability work to facilitate a healthy driving position and bespoke operator comfort.


Through an inclined and narrow dashboard, the high-vision design of the FB/FTB electric counterbalance truck maximises an operator’s ability to see in front, down and beside them at all times. Not forgetting the easy-to-read multi-function colour display that offers a comprehensive menu of information. 

The driver can guide the forklift effortlessly as the truck is enhanced with a one-spoke steering wheel and a steering knob that returns to the ideal 8 o’clock position for simple steering, control and precision.


No compromise, regardless of your preference

The three and four-wheel electric counterbalance forklift trucks are almost identical with the only difference being the close-coupled steering wheel of the three-wheel forklift and the traditional rear axle of the four-wheel vehicle.


The 360° steering option of the three-wheel counterbalance forklift allows the truck to turn and face the opposite direction in one smooth manoeuvre without stopping, dramatically improving cycle times.

FHB 2.5-3.5

4-Wheel Electric Counterbalance Truck

Intelligent and efficient innovation

The 80V FHB electric counterbalance truck is powered by lithium-ion (Li-ION) battery technology. With ergonomically designed controls, clear all-round vision and an advanced all-wheel steering system, the FHB provides responsive, agile manoeuvring and control of the truck and its loads with minimal effort or strain. ​


Versatile and cost-effective

A bustling warehouse environment can be a hectic place to operate in. If operators can’t work efficiently, downtime-related costs will soar. The FHB is efficient and durable, with simple servicing and maintenance requirements that minimise time spent out of action and maintain productivity in order to lower your overall TCO.


The FHB electric counterbalance has an ECO mode that can extend the runtime per battery charge, and the Li-ION battery provides a quick-connect access point that enables opportunity charging. Li-ION batteries have a long lifespan and faster-charging abilities than other battery types. This means minimal interruptions to operations, maximised productivity, and a reduced TCO, making the FHB a highly cost-effective solution.

Comfortable and safe 

To be productive in their tasks, it’s important that operators are happy. This is achieved when they feel safe and comfortable, and can attain job satisfaction. The ergonomic design of the FHB electric counterbalance forklift provides the driver with a spacious, quiet and conveniently equipped compartment, which features an adjustable seat, a large, flat, uncluttered floor, and plenty of foot and headroom.


The cabin is weatherproofed with a transparent roof, two sliding windows on each side, a rear window, front/rear wipers/washers, a heater, and the option for steel or PVC doors.


Along with keeping the driver safe, warm and comfortable, the FHB includes a long grab handle and non-slip step for easy entry and exit, as well as standard working lights, all of which are protected within the overhead guard (OHG) structure.


Where beneficial, additional lights can be added to the FHB electric counterbalance truck to highlight exclusion boundaries and warn pedestrians of the FHB’s presence. 


Advanced precision and control 

Built with the operator in mind, the FHB’s ergonomics and responsiveness enable the driver to operate the electric counterbalance forklift with precision, speed and confidence, even in tight spaces. 


Heightened vision is critical within material handling operations. The FHB provides a clear all-round vision of loads, racking and obstacles, for accurate truck and fork positioning. The advanced all-wheel steering system facilitates agile manoeuvring with minimal effort or strain. 


The steering wheel has a tilt-adjustable column for a comfortable driving position — meaning there’s no need to lean forward — and spring-force-optimised fingertip hydraulic controls on an adjustable armrest for superb hand positioning, anatomical support and free movement. 


In addition to advanced visibility and ergonomic controls, the FHB electric counterbalance forklift has an extra burst of torque to avoid loss of speed. This feature is particularly useful when going up ramps and inclines.


The Specifics: FHB 2.5 - 3.5 Four-Wheel Electric Counterbalance Truck  

Load capacity ranging from 2,000 KG to 3,000 KG

Truck length ranging from  3,459 mm - 3,628 mm

Running an operation with safety, precision, and control in mind are essential for material handling success. In today’s modern warehouse environment, these factors can’t be overlooked. Whether you’re looking for your first electric counterbalance truck, an upgrade, or one to add to your existing fleet, the FHB might be the right forklift truck for your operations.

FHB 4.0 - 5.5

4-Wheel Electric Counterbalance Truck



Built for power and efficiency

As robust and powerful as a large-engined diesel forklift, the FHB 4.0 - 5.5 offers market-leading performance whilst eliminating noise pollution via the silent hydraulic pump and is more energy-efficient than its diesel counterpart. 


This electric counterbalance forklift boasts an intelligent power boost accelerator which delivers low energy consumption and is particularly useful when travelling uphill or carrying heavy loads. The torque boost automatically adjusts to the truck’s motor torque, enabling the operator to maintain a healthy speed on ramps and inclines. With the FHB, you can choose to use lead-acid or Li-ION batteries depending on which is best suited to your operations.

Enhanced safety and protection

The FHB has an obstacle-free design, providing wide-ranging vision and eliminating the need to stretch, strain or lean out of the truck to see.


The mast, OHG and rear-mounting lights illuminate both the load of the truck and its surroundings, giving the operator an enhanced awareness of their surroundings at all times. The FHB has safety lights that automatically activate depending on the direction of travel, allowing safe boundaries around the truck to be defined to enhance the safety of nearby workers. 


As well as providing advanced visibility, the FHB electric counterbalance forklift offers advanced driver assistance that calculates and adjusts speeds automatically. Its load sensing monitors the lift, tilt, speed, and load weights of the electric counterbalance, making automatic performance adjustments accordingly, and the hill hold function prevents the forklift from independently rolling backwards when on a hill or ramp.

Intuitive control and enhanced visibility

This electric counterbalance forklift has been built to improve efficiency through effortless control. With crystal clear displays, adaptive speed control, swift battery exchange and customisable control options, every feature provides comfort and supports clear thinking. 


The displays provide the operator with valuable information such as lifting and loading messages, alarms, and instructions. The clear display means there are no unnecessary distractions, which is backed up by strong peripheral vision, enhancing awareness when manoeuvring in tight spaces. 


Efficient shift, operator, and battery changes are essential if you want to minimise downtime. The FHB has quick-release locks and 180-degree opening doors. This allows lead-acid battery changes and water level checks to be carried out quickly, and those using Li-ION can benefit from the ability to charge the truck without needing to open the doors.


State-of-the-art ergonomics for comfort

Even on long shifts, the FHB remains comfortable. The ergonomic controls and seating ensure the operator doesn’t have to strain to control the vehicle. With hydraulic levers and fingertip controls, the need for hand lifting, even when wearing gloves, is also reduced. 


As with our other electric counterbalance trucks, the FHB runs quietly, limiting noise pollution and noise-related fatigue and helping to reduce operator sickness and staff turnover.

The internal climate control allows operators to use the vehicle for both indoor and outdoor tasks as the integrated air conditioning, instant heat, and excellent ventilation are easily adjustable depending on the operational tasks at hand.
