THE STILL RX70 FORKLIFT TRUCK: THE MOST FUEL EFFICIENT FORKLIFT IN THE WORLD!
The RX 70 is infamous thanks to its reliability and ultra low consumption figures. Against this background the Fork Lift Truck Association (FLTA) of Great Britain awarded this standard truck the FLTA Environmental Award. In spite of the high turnover of loads, fuel consumption is just 2.5 litres per hour (RX 70 2.5 tonnes, 60 work cycles per hour in accordance with VDI 2198 new). This results in a remarkably low Total Cost of Ownership (including fuel etc) for this calibre of forklift. In a recent case study at Palletline, the RX 70 was found to be the most fuel efficient truck and offer total fuel savings of £121,200 against the next best competitor truck.

THE NEW STILL RX 70 DIESEL/ GAS FORKLIFT TRUCK WITH HYBRID DRIVE
With the new RX 70 hybrid diesel / gas forklift truck, STILL GmbH of Hamburg is consistently following the path to lower energy consumption and CO2 emissions. The design of the new truck has been based on the highly successful RX 70 forklift truck and is the first true hybrid forklift truck to make it into series production.
The new RX 70 has two energy storage systems. One is quite simply the diesel storage tank, but the other system is made up of high power double layer capacitors called ‘Super Caps’. These Super Caps are located at the rear of the truck and charged with the energy released whilst braking. When accelerating, the energy stored in Super Caps is used to provide additional power, thus the energy gained is used to power the drive.
In addition to this, the diesel engine generates current for the electric drive motor through a three-phase generator. The power electronics are used to link all systems and also control the charging and discharging of the auxiliary energy store.
