European Handling Equipment has launched the Warrior semi electric counterbalanced stacker. As the latest addition to the Warrior range, the new stacker has been designed as a compact and versatile truck with the ability to handle safely all types and sizes of pallet.
The company's Warrior range comprises an extensive selection of materials handling equipment including hand and high lift pallet trucks, platform trucks, mobile and static scissor lifts, stackers and work positioners plus a range of rugged handling attachments.
The new Warrior semi electric stacker provides a lifting capacity of 500kg at 400mm load centre and is available in two versions offering standard lifting heights of 1600mm and 2500mm plus an optional higher lift of 3000mm. With overall dimensions of 2060mm (length) and 840mm (width), the stacker is compact to ensure excellent manoeuvrability in confined operating areas. The truck is powered by a 12 volt battery which is supported by an integral charger to ensure fast recharging for optimum performance in the most demanding applications and environments.
One of the most significant features of the new Warrior semi electric counterbalanced stacker is its multi pallet handling ability. In many applications, the types of pallets to be handled cannot be guaranteed and a company's handling equipment is required to cope with a number of different pallets. These can include not only standard open-ended Euro pallets but also types that have full perimeter bottom boards and/or lateral bearers that cause problems for trucks fitted with traditional 'wrap over' forks. The new Warrior stacker overcomes this problem with its 800mm long carriage-mounted forks that may be simply adjusted to provide a fork spread from 190mm to 800mm. General workshop handling tasks are also simplified because the new counterbalanced stacker does not rely on straddle legs to achieve its rated lifting capacity.
Performance, reliability and safety have been designed into the new Warrior semi electric stacker. A simple to operate tiller handle ensures precise control whilst an efficient braking system ensures operator confidence throughout the most demanding shifts. Also, in common with all products in the Warrior range, the new stacker is covered by a full 12 months on site parts and labour warranty.
"Our new semi electric stacker has really raised the bar in low capacity trucks," Says Andy Williams, European Handling's managing director. "The Warrior range is renowned for being rugged, safe and cost effective. This newest addition to the range maintains that pedigree and we have already begun to see high levels of interest from our nationwide network of dealers."
