6,000 & 8,000 lb. Capacity Electric Center Control Rider Pallet Trucks

With its high drive performance and ergonomically optimized operator workplace, the ECE 227/236 XL NA center control riders stand at the forefront of maximum output in the most demanding applications.

Through a combination of the latest technologies and an ergonomic design, the Jungheinrich® ECE 227/236 XL NA optimizes both the cost and speed of order picking. With its high drive performance and ergonomically optimized operator workplace, the ECE stands at the forefront with maximum output in the most demanding applications.


The Jungheinrich® 3-phase AC motor and high-output AC controller deliver powerful torque and quick acceleration.

Maximum picking performance can be achieved with the lowest amount of energy consumption.

The central control rider has one of the most powerful motors for highest throughput efficiency.

Optional forward and reverse touch control buttons allow the operator to advance the truck while enhancing order picking efficiency.

Jungheinrich Curve Control automatically reduces speed while turning corners, helping to ensure control over loads.

The electronic parking brake automatically engages on ramps and inclines, reducing the chance for rollback.

An operator presence switch is integrated into the platform, so the truck will not move without the operator aboard.

Energy Efficiency

The high-energy efficiency of this tow tractor is due to the AC drive motor.

The Jungheinrich AC drive motor and AC controller are specifically tuned in-house to maximize performance and energy efficiency for greater uptime. 

The regenerative braking feature recovers potentially lost energy, feeding it back to the battery for greater efficiency.
