A special feature of this is the uniformly strong development of the power from a standstill up to maximum speed. In addition, the RX 60’s power boost function, whereby a momentary increase in power is provided when needed, is a particularly useful characteristic when pushing pallets or starting on ramps, for example. The maintenance-free, efficiency-optimised three-phase drive guarantees a long battery operating life. Thanks to complete enclosure the whole drive is protected against the ingress of damaging dust and water spray, so that even applications in the worst conditions are no problem.
In addition to this, thanks to their electrical regenerative braking, the motors feed back up to 15% of the energy into the battery when the drive pedal is released, and thus increase the useful time from a battery charge by up to 1.5 hours. This means that interim battery charging or even changing is often not necessary. The STILL controller ensures sensitive driving with optimal utilisation of energy. It also enables the truck to be held on ramps without using the maintenance-free multi-disc brakes, for greater safety and driving comfort. The power electronics are protected within the counterweight. The heat from the controller is dissipated into the counterweight over a large area. This arrangement provides very good cooling without additional fans or filters and makes the work pleasantly quiet and reliable.
