E12-E20 EVO Series 386 Electric Forklift (3 WHEEL)

An agile powerhouse


Wide variety of models and maximum manoeuvrability

The three-wheeled trucks of the E12–E20 EVO series offer a wide range of models with different battery sizes, overall heights or aisle widths and can therefore be configured according to the requirements of each individual customer. 

The trucks also allow for precision load handling in tight spaces. Thanks to the turntable axle, the operator can turn up to 180 degrees with one movement of the steering wheel. Two AC motors integrated into the front axle, powered by 24 or 48 volt batteries, guarantee a powerful drive and offer outstanding acceleration and top speeds. 

The energy management system ensures the batteries are used to full capacity, minimising consumption. What’s more, all E12–E20 EVO forklift models can also be equipped with Li-ION batteries which allow for efficient multiple-shift operation without the need for battery replacement.


The trucks are equipped with a wide range of standard safety functions.

  • The Linde Protector Frame protects the operator with a solid closed protection zone.
  • Overhead tilt cylinders stabilise the mast and enable the use of slim, nested lift mast profiles, giving the operator the best possible view of the load and the working environment.
  • All circuits of the control system have a high level of reliability and operational safety.
  • Traction control ensures optimum power delivery even under difficult conditions.
  • Additional protection is provided by numerous optional safety systems that are available ex works and as retrofit solutions.
