Single Level Battery Extractors


An IIoT Battery Changing Solution for Up to 99 Forklift Batteries

The BHS Single Level Battery Extractor (BE-SL) incorporates two pass-through roller beds and a powerful extractor arm to substantially reduce battery change-out time. For battery rooms that are not ready to install multi-tiered system stands, the BHS BE-SL provides consistently high levels of efficiency, ergonomic gains, and operator safety.

Digital integration provides Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) features like condition-based and predictive maintanance, operator login controls, safety alerts, and usage tracking through the first-in-its-class BHS IIoT Portal.

This reliable forklift battery changer is ideal for fleets that use between 1 and 99 batteries. For higher-capacity battery handling needs, consider a Double, Triple, or Quad Stack Battery Extractor System — all of which offer the same IIoT solutions for greater uptime and service life.

BHS Operator Aboard Battery Extractors are highly customizable and can be constructed to meet any application’s unique specifications. To discuss the benefits of a Single Level Battery Extractor, speak with a member of our sales team.

Single Level Forklift Battery Changers for Tough Environments

Like the entire family of BHS Operator Aboard Battery Extractors, the BE-SL features a steel frame with extra-heavy duty construction. Industrial-grade steel components can easily support even the heaviest loads, and the BE-SL boasts a full lifting capacity of 10,000 lbs.

In addition to strength and dependability, Single Level Battery Extractors offer some of the fastest battery change-out times in the industry. Sensor arrays provide fully connected data collection and reporting through the cloud.
