MAFI launches electric terminal tractor T 230e

Jan. 13, 2021
Eastern Lift Truck Co. will begin distributing MAFI Transport-Systeme’s electric yard truck in the spring.

German manufacturer MAFI Transport-Systeme GmbH will release an electric version of its diesel T 230 terminal tractor, called the T 230e, in the U.S. through its distributor Eastern Lift Truck Co., Inc. The yard truck designed for seaport and industrial use, will be available in Spring 2021.

Features of the T 230e include:

  • Hydraulically operated fifth wheel
  • Spacious cabin
  • Optimal visibility
  • Low maintenance
  • Small turning radius

MAFI, founded in 1957, offers several yard trucks for seaport and container handling operations, and logistics and distribution centers.

By swapping out the diesel engine for a battery with up to 177 kwh capacity, the new T230e will provide a cleaner, more environmentally friendly option, without loss of performance.

“T 230 operators, who have become accustomed to the comfort and productivity of the T 230, will now enjoy a much quieter operation,” said MAFI Sales Director Jürgen Thorwarth. “Maintenance and cost of operation for the T 230e will be considerably less than typical internal combustion engine yard trucks, as less wear and tear is exerted on componentry.”
