Electric Forklifts and Material Handling Equipment

H&K Equipment is leading the charge on electric material handling equipment. We are a leading supplier of electric forklifts, platform trucks, utility vehicles, electric railcar movers, loaded container handlers, and much more.

We carry dozens of electric and battery-powered vehicles and machines from industry leaders like Taylor Machine Works, UniCarriers, Big Joe, Bendi, Drexel, Landoll, and Elwell-Parker as well as UTVs and personnel carriers from Columbia, Cushman, and Motrec.

We also carry specialized equipment like Zephir’s all-electric railcar movers and Kalmar Ottawa’s T2E electric terminal tractor.

Electric Forklifts and Stackers

H&K Equipment carries a huge selection of battery-powered electric forklifts and stackers from UniCarriers, Big Joe, Bendi, Drexel, and Landoll in a wide range of capacities.

Electric forklifts feature fewer moving parts than their internal combustion counterparts, so there’s less maintenance. They produce zero emissions and are much quieter than traditional forklifts, making them better for the environment and the health of your workers. Pair these features with lower lifetime ownership costs, and you have an ideal choice for warehouses and distribution centers.

Electric Intermodal and Port Equipment

Taylor Machine Works is the leader in producing the best heavy-duty forklifts and container handling equipment, which is why you can find Taylor trucks in many of the busiest ports in the world. The ZH Series of electric forklifts and the ZLC Series of electric container handlers represent the next generation of zero-emission intermodal operations.

These rugged, high-capacity machines are fully electric and produce no carbon dioxide, making them better for the environment, better for your employees, and better for the future.

Electric Yard Trucks

We are proud to offer the Kalmar Ottawa T2E electric terminal tractor through our H&K Equipment Group partner, Yard Truck Specialists. Known throughout North America and beyond, Kalmar Ottawa is the recognized leader in trailer spotting, and this all-electric addition to the popular T2 Series is revolutionizing the industry.

Clean, green, and with more proven uptime than traditional-fuel vehicles, the T2E produces zero emissions, less noise, and can be safely used indoors and out. 

Electric Platform Trucks and Die Handlers

The Elwell-Parker brand represents 130 years of innovative electric lifting solutions. That century-plus of experience is inside every Elwell-Parker lift truck and is the reason why these machines are far and away the most rugged, efficient, and longest-lasting in their class.

H&K Equipment offers parts, service, and rebuilds for the entire history of Elwell-Parker equipment, including platform trucks, die handlers, battery-powered forklifts, coil ram tractors, and automated guided vehicles.

Electric Personnel and Utility Vehicles

H&K Equipment is your home for Columbia, Cushman, and Motrec personnel carriers, utility vehicles, and specialized warehouse equipment. These three leading brands offer a wide selection of battery-powered vehicles for indoor and outdoor applications and have a stellar track record for quality and dependability.

From powerful UTVs and personnel carriers to quick and nimble Minute Misers, these battery-powered electric vehicles can maximize productivity in your workplace, all with zero emissions and low noise. Most are available in custom builds and configurations to fit any unique work environment.
