A TL10 forklift with a capacity of 10 tons, requiring only 3 E cells for 3h, and 14 minutes' maintenance each day. Its ticket price of kCr42 makes it very affordable. Its competitor, the TL8 model requires 20 E cells, 1.35h of maintenance each day, and costs kCr140.

Note that a TL8 forklift purchased in a TL10 economy would cost approximately kCr35, but the maintenance savings alone would pay for the kCr7 difference quickly.
