In order to obtain maximum work from an electric forklift truck, it is necessary from the designer's point of view to maximize systems efficiency. This paper discusses vehicle hydraulic systems and parameters affecting design, realizing that the truck is powered by a battery with finite energy storage capacity. Efficiency of hardware that hydraulics control is shown to be as important as hydraulic hardware selection and design per se, and duty cycle must also share equal consideration.
