7/8 Ton counterbalanced ECB70/80 electric forklift

The new heavy-duty BYD ECB 70/80 is BYD’s flagship high-capacity forklift that extends the capabilities already established by its 5-tonne model to unprecedented new levels for lithium-powered forklifts. In industry sectors traditionally dominated by polluting diesel trucks and impractical and unwieldy lead acid battery electric forklifts, BYD’s attractive new ECB70/80, with lifting capacities up to 8 tonnes, offers all of the performance of the models it supplants with none of the drawbacks.

Compared to a diesel-powered forklift of similar capacity, the BYD ECB70/80 offers potentially huge savings thanks to its highly developed battery and charger technology. The BYD ECB70/80 is approximately €7-€8 per hour cheaper to operate than a diesel equivalent (according to data provided by competitors), meaning a typical business operating a high-capacity forklift for 2,000 hours can save up to €16,000 annually.


Technical description of the BYD ECB70/80 Comfort model

The BYD ECB70/80 7/8 Ton Comfort three-wheel forklift truck has the same characteristics as the Basic model, in addition to:

  • Multi-function armrest with fingertip control
  • Seat with full suspension
  • Mast with full free double lifting cylinders

Other features of the BYD ECB70/80 model

  • Curve speed adjustment to improve stability and reduce risk of overturning
  • Brake assist when it detects that the operator is releasing the brake on a ramp or slope
  • Limitation of the front tilt angle to reduce the risk of load drop
  • When the load exceeds 10% of the set weight, the engine stops working for safety’s sake
  • Multifunction TFT display with scrolling speed, remaining battery capacity, clock with working hours and accumulated hours, and three speed modes

BYD ECB70/80 model battery charger combinations

The BYD lithium iron phosphate battery technology allows you to charge it 100% in just over 2 hours for direct use without waiting for it to cool down, as is the case with conventional batteries.

BYD electric forklift trucks have several chargers according to the needs of each user.
