German term or phrase: Motorkohlen
A fork lift truck has low maintence costs due to 'fehlende Motorkohlen und Fahrtrichtungs-Schuetzen'
English translation:motor brushes and reversing contactors
Explanation:
"fehlende" doesn't mean missing in this case, but that the drive design employed here uses brushless motors and does not need reversing contactors. For example variable speed AC drive falls in this category. And that could result in lower maintenance costs.

Explanation:
I absolutely agree with Beth's response. As regards, fehlende - you could render this either with "due to the absence of brushes..." or "due to the fact that ... is not equipped with..."

Good luck!
