E12 – E20 EVO (three-wheeled)


The three-wheeled E12 – E20 EVO trucks allow for precision load handling in even the tightest of spaces. Thanks to the central pivot axle, the driver can turn up to 180 degrees with a single steering wheel movement. Two three-phase motors integrated in the front axle guarantee a powerful drive, offering outstanding acceleration and top speeds, powered by 48 or 24 volt batteries. Linde energy management ensures the batteries are used to full capacity, minimizing consumption. What’s more, all E12 – E20 EVO forklift models can also be equipped with Lithium-Ion batteries that allow for efficient multiple-shift operation without the need to change batteries.


Product Overview

The Linde Protector Frame offers the driver all-round protection, the roof and frame forming a large, enclosed protective zone. The tilt cylinders are located overhead and allow for the use of slim, encapsulated lift mast profiles, ensuring the driver has the best possible view of the load and their surroundings. All of the control circuits are backed up by a redundancy, protecting against accidents and guaranteeing high levels of operational safety.

  • Robust overhead guard and components offering optimal visibility
  • Safety systems as Standard
  • Protection of drivers, loads and enviroment
  • numerous optional safety systems ex works and as retrofit

Forklifts in the E12 – E16 EVO range are ergonomically designed for fatigue-free, effective working processes – something they have in common with all Linde trucks. The spacious cabin offers plenty of legroom and lots of storage space, while the mast and axle are decoupled from the chassis and driver’s cab, meaning very few vibrations are felt by the driver in the cab. Where the EVO generation really shines are the wide entry step and the adjustable armrest and seat unit.

  • Optimized entry and ergonomic control layout
  • Efficient twin pedal drive
  • Sensitive control via Linde Load Control
  • Individually adjustable unit consisting of armrest and seat

Three-wheeled trucks are particularly notable for their agility: their turntable axle makes turns of up to 180 degrees possible, the truck turning on the middle of the front axle. While turning, the two front wheels roll in opposite directions which reduces wear on the tires and mitigates damage to floor surfaces. Plus, energy consumption is reduced due to the minimal steering resistance. What’s more, Linde Load Control ensures safe, millimeter-precise load handling. Lift mast functions can be effortlessly controlled using only the fingertips, and the driver can carry out lifting and tilting functions simultaneously.

  • Maximum maneuverability in even the tightest of confined spaces
  • Wheels roll in opposite directions when turning
  • Extended tire life
  • Reduced energy consumption due to minimal steering resistance
  • No damage to flooring
  • Safe load handling with Linde Load Control

E12 – E20 EVO electric forklift trucks offer particularly economical maintenance intervals: the first servicing tasks only need to be carried out after 1000 operating hours. Transmission oil change is only necessary after 3000 operating hours, and a hydraulic oil change only after 6000 hours. Servicing has been considered even in the construction of the truck, ensuring easy access to all components in the event of necessary repairs, with service panels for maintenance access, and minimized maintenance work. Key, truck parts subject to heavy loads are completely maintenance-free, including the integrated drive axle with brakes and three-phase motors, the mast and tilt cylinders, and the reduction gear. Plus, spare parts are easy to assemble.

  • Initial service after 1,000 operating hours
  • Central truck parts such as electric motors are maintenance-free
  • Hydraulic oil change after 6000 operating hours
  • Rapid part exchange due to maintenance-friendly design
  • Continuous technical optimization
