Efficiency Measurements of Lift Trucks 2005-01-1494

Southern California Edison (SCE) developed a procedure for evaluating the efficiency of lift trucks and their associated systems after investigating available data and procedures in the industry. The search for information included manufacturers, utilities, and government agencies. To validate the procedure, fifteen trucks were selected for evaluation.
