Do you need a battery with a cover?
Standard flip top lid, available on most 12v and 24v batteries when the top of the battery would be otherwise be exposed in the forklift. Example: Most pallet jacks require a cover.
Most order picker and reach trucks do not need a cover because the battery rolls into the machine from the side.
This cover is hinged in the center. The hinge runs front to back on the forklift. This style is mainly used in 36v and 48v forklifts that do not have a hood over the battery compartment.
If you are replacing a battery with this type of cover and you have difficulty opening the cover because of the steering wheel, consider ordering the replacement battery with a Bi-Fold Cover.

The hinge runs front to back on the forklift.
This cover is hinged at the rear of the forklift and has an additional hinge in the center. It allows the operator to pull the cover back towards the rear, exposing all of the cells. Use this style when there is not enough clearance to open a split hinge cover due to the steering wheel.
