XL Lifts to distribute eBull

Wiggins Lift Company has selected XL Lifts to distribute its Wiggins Yard eBull – one of the first large-capacity, zero-emission forklifts manufactured exclusively in the USA.

The Wiggins Yard eBull can be delivered with a lifting capacity ranging from 30,000-70,000 lbs (13.6-31.8 tonnes). It features fast-charging lithium-ion battery technology developed by Thor Trucks.

According to Mike Marzahl, president of XL Lifts, the high-capacity electric forklift can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and sound pollution, while still meeting the heavy-duty needs of industrial companies.

The Wiggins Yard eBull was showcased for the first time at Breakbulk Americas, which took place in Houston earlier this month.
