Jungheinrich 2 Shifts on 1 Charge Guarantee


Jungheinrich's advanced AC technology allow select trucks in most applications to run up to 16 hours on a single battery charge.

See the potential savings when you no longer need a 2nd battery.

1) Calculate your annual labor savings:

  • Average time to change a battery: 20 minutes
  • Working days/year, 5-days/week: 254
  • Time per year changing batteries: (20 x 254) = 5,808 minutes = 85 hours
  • Multiply time by your average operator pay rate including cost of benefits: Example: $20/hour

Annual savings per operator: 85 hours x $20 = $1,700
Annual savings with ten operators = $17,000

2) Calculate your battery savings:

  • Battery cost varies by type. Example shows $7,000 as an average price for an industrial battery.
  • Multiply battery price by the number of trucks operating 2 shifts.

One-time savings on 1 truck: $7,000
One-time savings on 10 trucks: $70,000

3) Add results of step one and two together.

Total First Year Savings Example:

1 truck, 1 operator: $8,700
10 trucks, 10 operators: $87,000

More Savings:

  • Reduced battery changing equipment
  • Cost/sq foot of floor space saved by not storing extra batteries
  • Improved safety from not changing batteries.
