ELS RTE 12-E ELS Lift’s RTE 12-E will be production ready in 2023

ELS Lift has started what it describes as a green transformation across all its product categories.

It continues the Turkey-based manufacturer’s initiative that started with the e-series scissor lift series, launched in 2020 with the EL12-e and introduced to users in the last quarter of 2021.

This will be followed with the launch into mass production in 2023 of the company’s first rough terrian all-electric model, the RT12-E. Apart from the direct electric drive, the company has made improvements to reduce hydraulics to prevent leakage problems by 80% - 90%. The hydraulic elements left on the machine are now for steering and wheels. It features maintenance-free batteries, less battery consumption while moving and ease of maintenance.

ELS said the latest trends in technology, combined with the climate crisis led the company’s R&D department to introduce the new model. “These measures and emission criteria implemented by governments have become a priority in the design of all of ELS Lift’s ongoing studies.”

The new electric RT scissor was also developed following intense demands for zero emission equipment from the market, said ELS.

The company added that the RT12-E is designed to be efficient indoors and outdoors, offering a high-capacity basket with a wider platform compared to industry norms. Upon its launch there will also be a fast-charging feature and stabilization offered as standard, in comparison to similar equipment where such a feature is an option, said ELS.
