Sustainable Forklifts – Voiceover by Colin Cassidy
00:18 Today, we are taking a look at the Combilift-XLE. Normally, there would be music on Combilift videos but for this specific machine they decided you should enjoy the sound of the surrounding wildlife.
The Features
00:43 This electric XL comes with zero fuel emissions and can lift up to five tons of lumber around a busy yard. That’s the average weight of an African elephant. You don’t need to know about its larger cushioned front and rear tyres, designed for a smoother ride. Its multi-directional capability that increases storage while lowering your carbon footprint per square meter. Its higher ground clearance for working around rough yards or that its all-wheel traction reduces tire wear as well as load swing.
Perfect for Indoor/Outdoor Use
01:22 Never mind the fact that with zero emissions, the well-being of staff and customers is protected while the forklift works safely alongside them in the factory. The much roomier cab for operator comfort painted with toughened eco-friendly water-based paint is neither here nor there. You only need to know that being electric you are helping the environment with a sustainable way of transporting your goods and the benefits of it being so quiet means you won’t be annoying your neighbours no matter who they might be.

Key Features


Zero Emissions

Conserve natural resources and decrease energy consumption
During the building process, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are always a concern. Yet, thanks to the use of toughened, eco-friendly water-based paint, they have seen a dramatic reduction. Plus, during use, electric Combi-XLEs produce zero emissions. This is not only good for the environment but beneficial for employees too. Without proper ventilation, emissions from LPG and diesel forklifts build up in facilities. Therefore, companies that rely on fans to circulate air in their buildings can enjoy cost savings as an additional bonus.

Better still, the Irish materials handling specialist has revolutionised its manufacturing facility. Wanting to conserve natural resources and decrease energy consumption, they use things like:

– Daylighting technology
– LED lights with PIR sensors
– Solar panel energy
– Rainwater harvesting
– And much more

In addition, 92% of all components used in their truck assembly are 100% recyclable. Plus, the company is on track to save over 473 tons of CO2 by using carbon-neutral wood chips instead of gas for heating within the factory.

Zero Noise Pollution

Combi-XLEs are far quieter than their LPG or diesel counterparts
Noise pollution impacts the health and well-being of people as well as wildlife and the natural environment. Fortunately, thanks to electrically powered forklifts, it’s also a thing of the past. Thanks to electric power. Combi-XLEs are far quieter than their LPG or diesel counterparts. Operators, the workforce and visitors to your site will appreciate the quiet operation. We’re more than sure your neighbouring residents and businesses will too!

Reduced Maintenance Expenses

Its performance is on a par with diesel or LPG powered forklifts
Electric trucks do not have traditional combustion engines. Nor do they have hydraulic transmissions, meaning they already have built-in cost savings. Especially when switching from associated LPG or diesel forklifts. Why? Because there is no longer a need to check and top up engine fluids or lubricants, which results in longer intervals between services. With so many advantages to an electric truck, it’s clear why the Combi-XLE is extremely beneficial to your company. To explain more of the finer features, here is what the CEO and Co-founder of Combilift had to say.

“The technology we have incorporated into the Combi-XLE means that its performance is equally on a par with diesel or LPG powered forklifts when it comes to handling very bulky and heavy loads, whilst of course offering a greener operation. We made our first electric C-Series over 18yrs ago, and now over 60% of the trucks we manufacture are electric, with availability in almost all models across our range. As more and more of our customers are opting for electric power it is obvious that they are as committed to sustainability and a circular economy as we are.”

What our clients say

We are very pleased with the change from an engine to an electric fleet. The trucks have been well received by our operators as they are comfortable and quiet to drive and give excellent protection from the elements. We even have the option and flexibility to use spare batteries and a simple battery change system if we ever want to work back to back shifts in the future. Locators also design, supply and install all types of racking and storage systems. They reconfigured the CooperVision warehouse for narrow aisle operation which increases the storage density and pallet locations. Locators supplied Aisle-Master articulated forklifts to work in this area.

Coopervision, Hamble

We have worked with Locators for nearly 20 years. We are confident they can always make the best use of the space we have available and provide us with forklifts that are well suited for the long loads and other stock we have to move.

Colin Macgregor
Director, Y Goldberg

Every time we look at an application, Locators approach it like a blank canvas and always recommend the best equipment for our business. Locators have proved themselves as a very reliable and proactive service provider by keeping our trucks working and our fleet costs as low as possible.

Adam Conrad
Group Transport Manager for Covers

Being able to work with one supplier for storage and materials handling has been a benefit to us. Locators managed the complete installation and ensured the correct materials handling equipment was specified for their design. They also service and maintain all of the equipment they have supplied and offer a rack inspection service to make sure our warehouse remains a safe working environment. We are very happy with our new facility and we believe we have made the best use of the available space.

Marc Congdon
Engineering Manager, Costa

We purchased our first Toyota forklift from Locators 14 years ago for our farm. This truck has been very reliable and is still in service so we had no hesitation in deciding to purchase another Toyota machine. Locators recommended an electric forklift for our machinery depot as it is very quiet, has low running costs and does not create any pollution, making it ideal for working both inside and outside. Our operators are very pleased with our new Toyota truck and our business is very happy to be operating a forklift that has such a low impact on the environment.

Ed Smales
Director, NFFM

Locators installed the new racking system within a tight timeframe while our business was fully operational. They have provided us with a facility that has a similar storage capacity and reduced the size of our forklift fleet allowing us to lease one building instead of two. We are very happy with the outcome.

Paul Bickell
Nippon Express

Locators gave us the benefit of working with just one supplier for all of the storage and materials handling requirements of this project. By mixing 3 and 4 wheel trucks from the same model range, we have gained extra pallet locations and have the option to battery change between them and work multi-shift in the future. I was initially sceptical that electric trucks could replace LPG, but I am very pleased with the successful outcome of this project.

Mark Davis
Logistics Supervisor for Hall & Woodhouse brewery

It is a great benefit to us that we have a single source supplier who understands the needs of our business. This saves us time, improves efficiency and ultimately reduces cost.
