The high lift stacker’s strong and completely welded base frame is available with a choice of four different fork widths and eight different lengths to match demanding application requirements. The bumper is a single piece of 10mm thick construction – no splits or bolted joints to reduce potential damage and service risk. The side panels of the truck are made from 5mm pressed steel and are built into the exterior of the truck to once again reduce the risk of damage.
Available with 2-stage and 3-stage masts up to 6,020mm, the Rider Stacker can work in aisle widths as small as 2.5m. The rated capacity is 1,600kg. The traction motor gives powerful acceleration and has an increased travel speed of up to 9km/h. there are two different steering modes; Standard steering and Reverse steering comes as an option. Full AC infrastructure on drive and steering motors allows for seamless changes in direction, increased cycle speeds and greater control of pallet handling operations. Adjustable steering reduction on cornering provides smooth load handling and precise directional control.
Operators can sit during long traction runs or lean when operating in back of the trailer. The operator compartment of this high lift stacker provides enhanced operator comfort and space. The low 297mm step height and market-leading width of 470mm makes entering and exiting the truck easier. The seat design with sit, lean and stand system combines a swinging seat cushion with fixed back rest, housed on side panel enabling the adjustment of the seat position between horizontal seat and vertical lean/stand at a push of a button. The operator comfort is further enhanced by a market leading floor area. A suspended floor plate and cushioned floor mat reduces shocks felt by the operator and the operator presence switch requires the operator to have both feet within the driver compartment.
There are two different steering modes: Standard steering and Reverse steering as option.
Smooth load handling and precise direction control are provided by the adjustable speed reduction on cornering feature. Mini levers for all hand controlled main hydraulic functions are within finger reach position. Left hand steering and right-hand accelerator finger/thumb operation provides operator control options, which is useful for different hand dimensions and allows the operator to change position throughout the shift, limiting fatigue. The hand grip is fixed directly to the frame and does not include any controls ensuring a strong and solid grip. The position of the display directly in front of the operator allows for easy view without impeding the operator’s visibility.
Side panels and the MDU (Master Driver Unit) are bolted to the frame enabling straight forward removal for servicing or replacements. The drive wheel can be also accessed from within the frame. A hinged floor plate, with gas strut stay enables quick access to caster wheel and hydraulic unit for inspection or top up of fluids. Regenerative braking recovers energy and increases the braking effect to help reduce maintenance costs.
The traction motor and controllers provide further efficiency and are fitted with forced air cooling as standard.
