Fuel Savings & Environmentally Friendly

As an electric engine vehicle, burden carriers ensure your business fulfills green initiatives without unnecessarily hindering operations. Like all electric engine vehicles, burden carriers have a much lower cost of ownership and maintenance threshold than internal combustion engines do. The lack of a fuel tank makes them more compact, allowing better maneuverability in tight spaces. Electric engines also cost much less to refuel.


Utilizing six forklifts to load and unload as well as transport is a costly and unnecessary expense. Alternatively, you can reduce your forklift fleet to three to perform all loading and unloading tasks, while making up the transport needs with three burden carriers with tug carts. That adds up to three vehicles with far fewer operational and maintenance costs than standard forklifts.
