Wiggins Lift Co. is excited to unveil the first commercially available zero emission large capacity forklift. With capacities ranging from 30,000 to 70,000 lbs, the Wiggins Yard
WIGGINS YARD eBULL FEATURES
- Zero Emissions
- Motion Alerts – visual and audible
- Radar and Back Up camera
- Unique Battery Management System for extended service life and safety
- Unique battery design keeps battery packs safe
- Vibration and Shock component mounting
- Significantly lower operating and maintenance costs compared to diesel

Wiggins eBull Series is Zero Emission. Stay ahead of the approaching regulations that will eliminate diesel engines in all Off-Highway equipment. With a 10 year equipment replacement cycle, for example, the time to start electrification at your facility is now. Tier IV engines are only a temporary step on the way to Zero Emissions.
Clean and Quiet Powertrain
All energy is from unique high voltage Lithium Ion battery packs, designed and built by Thor Trucks. Safe High Voltage 720 VDC keeps power delivery strong and efficient while helping to keep weight and costs down. High Torque, direct drive, AC electric motor feeds power to our proven drive axles for high pulling power and gradability. Zero Emissions for clean operations inside buildings and ships, without fumes, soot, or noise.
Safety is Essential
Battery technology is unique with a tested cell configuration that eliminates the potential for cascade failures. Steel protects batteries to prevent damage from falling objects or side collisions. Park Brake automatically applies if there is a loss of hydraulic power. Hydraulic wet disc brakes in the main drive axle are fully capable of stopping the fully loaded machine in the distance required by the ITSDF B56.1 Safety Standard, even without the help normally provided by the electric drive motor.
- Reverse Backup Camera
- Daylight Strobes when moving
- Optional rear facingradar with audible and visual warnings to operator
- Optional noise makers include conventional backup alarm and modern White Noise Generator to alert nearby pedestrians.
Wiring, circuit protections, connectors, and overall design protect the batteries and all electrical components from damage. Certifications of compliance with UL-583 and ITSDF B56.1 safety standards are expected early 2019. Batteries are protected by steel enclosures, high capacity cooling systems for each pack, vibration and shock isolation mounting. The Battery Management System balances charging and discharging rates, controls temperatures throughout the battery packs, prolongs battery lifetime. The Vehicle Control Unit controls power and temperatures in the liquid cooled electric motors and inverters. Radiator Protection includes expanded metal screen.
The eBull has many safety features including Daylight Strobes and Reverse Backup Camera.
