Product Innovations for Electro Forklifts
The market leader for Driveline Technology for Electric
Counterbalance Fork lifts further optimized its products.
GP 15 – GP 25
In the engine-power class up to 2.5 tons vehicles with ZF Driveline
systems are achieving the same driving performance as forklifts
powered by combustion engine technology. For this purpose ZF
could optimize the line for 2-engine drives. These drive train
systems are today’s benchmark for efficiency, thus energy
performance and noise level. This was tested and approved by
independent technical magazines. Any forklift operator appreciates
the long service intervals.
ZF ERGOMAT GP 21 has a dual-motor drive system for
counterbalance lift trucks with integrated wet-running multi-disc
brake. This previous generation of the GP 25 is fully localized in
Hangzhou. It meets the requirements of the Asian market with the
high quality standards of the worldwide ZF production systems.
GPA 35
This drive axle with 2 integrated high performance motors and
integrated multi-disk brake is setting standards in class up to 3.5
tons lifting capacity. Vehicles with GPA 35 are on the same
handling capacity performance level than forklifts with IC
technology. Efficiency improvements once more lead to a reduced
energy consumption and enhanced battery operating distance. The
low operating noise of the GPA 35 is already well-known.
The electro-mechanical steering system is soon replacing
hydrostatic steering systems for front driven counterbalance
forklifts. Main advantages are:
Low energy consumption
New dynamic safety functions

Significantly reduced installation complexity for forklift
We are certain that the steering system EPS3 co-developed with
ZAPI will achieve the same success as other ZF product lines.
GK 26 LD
This power train for rear driven 3-wheel counter-balance lift trucks
represents the next generation of this configuration within the
product line. Noise level, efficiency and service friendliness could
again be improved. In such a way this drive system - as the
counterparts in storage technology - is operated with life time oilfilling.
The energy efficiency could be improved through:
 small shaft sealing rings
 improved and optimized pre-stressed bearings
 the proverbial ZF gearing quality
GK – line
The same advantages apply for this storage technology systems as
for GK 26 LD. With the GK line ZF offers an all-purpose driveline
construction kit for this kind of vehicles – all optimized for their
individual application demands. For all applications ZF is able to
access the optimized engines of well-known producers. ZF has the
ability to offer its customers pre-finished and tested drive-line
solutions first-hand together with brakes, steering-systems, vehicle
adaptation and vehicle integration. The ZF patent hypoid gearing
offers the customer an optimum of power (torque capacity),
durability and high gear ratio, requiring minimal installation space.
In battle for increasing handling capacity more and more
customers trust in the unique selling point of ZF.
ZF’s consistent growth exceeds average market growth rates and
evidences that more and more sophisticated customers trust in the
solutions provided by ZF. Our drives have proven themselves in all
applications and all markets.

GK 10 LD
All advantages also apply for the latest development GK 10 LD.
This product serves the global platform market for walkies and
riders. Optionally it can be equipped with 9 inch tires for European
and Asian markets and 10 inch tires for North America.
The GK 10 LD is produced in China. It fulfils all quality standards
for ZF products.
