The Big Joe E25 electric pallet jack is the first of the brand’s new lithium based products and was released on July 15th of this year. Unique to this model is that it is the first Big Joe product to use their new "Easy Exchange" 8lb. portable lithium power pack, which is similar conceptually to power supplies on cordless hand tools. The use of a small exchangeable battery with the power density and quick recharge time of lithium cells is hoped to be a strong motivator in moving companies away from the use of manual pallet jacks and towards electric. Especially on the E25 given the revolutionary form factor and price point of this new model.
The Big Joe E25 can handle 2,500lb loads with a power head length of just 15.25" and a gross weight under 300lb. Variable travel controls, horn, electric brake, removable key fob, battery discharge indicator, powered lift and 27x45 forks are standard on the truck. Along with such features common to larger units, the E25 has a unique manual lowering handle which mimics the manual pallet jacks it hopes to replace. Not only is this feature familiar to users of manual equipment it is also purposeful as it helps deliver efficiency in both run time and use.
