Modern is the exclusive dealer for BYD Forklifts across the Mid-Atlantic.

In short, there is simply nothing on the market which compares to lift trucks from BYD. At the core of this remarkable design is a revolutionary power source. Every BYD Forklift utilizes an iron phosphate battery, the same technology as what is powering your cell phone and laptop right now.


This is not an insert or replacement battery for your existing forklift. This technology is part of the exclusive BYD forklift package. By designing the entire unit to work as one 

The battery is housed in an enclosed case which is designed to never need to be opened or removed. It has gone through extensive abuse testing from drops, to punctures, to extreme vibrations, to being grilled on an open flame. The results are the same: no runaway thermal reaction, they do not rupture, they do not harmful gases: the units remain stable and safe for proper disposal by certified technicians.

There is no need for watering, no need for swapping, no need for venting, no fear of fumes or corrosion. When you need to charge the unit you simply plug-in to the side charging port like you would a cell phone. After just 30 minutes you will have over 90 minutes of operational charge.

By leaving outdated lead-acid batteries behind you suddenly transform almost everything about your material handling operation. From truck performance, to infrastructure, to safety and cost of ownership.
