Raymond Introduces Model 8250 AC Walkie Pallet Truck Powered by Lithium-ion Battery
GREENE, N.Y., September 14, 2017 — The Raymond Corporation introduces the Raymond Model 8250 AC walkie pallet truck powered by lithium-ion technology. The Raymond-labeled lithium-ion power pack, powered by Brammo — with which Raymond announced a strategic technology alliance for developing robust lithium-ion alternative energy solutions in September 2016 — was developed specifically for Raymond and its use within the walkie pallet truck. In addition, the currently launched 24V, 78 ampere-hour Light EV Battery Pack has been certified and UL 2271-listed — leading the industry in receiving this designation for forklift applications.
“Addressing safety considerations for the forklift and light EV battery market with UL’s trusted independent third-party evaluation gives manufacturers like Raymond a way to demonstrate their compliance of their products to stringent safety standards,” said Ibrahim Jilani, business development manager for UL’s Energy Systems and e-Mobility team. “Being UL-listed is an assurance that the forklift and the battery pack have been evaluated, meeting the national standards for electric battery-powered industrial trucks and light EV batteries.”
