Presto Lifts says its new PowerJak electric Pallet trucks feature powered lift and powered drive for effortless transport of palletized loads in a wide variety of manufacturing, warehousing and retail applications.
Two models are available with load capacities of 3,000 lbs. and 4,500 lbs. They are equipped with heavy-duty reinforced forks that have a lowered height of 3.4 in. and raised height of up to 8 in. The outside dimension of the forks is 27 in.and the load center is 24 in.
An easily visible and accessible instrument cluster includes a key switch to prevent unauthorized use, an LED battery status indicator, a digital hour meter and an emergency e-stop. And Presto Lifts says the electrical system includes a reliable, industry-recognized controller and contactors. Power is provided by two 12VDC, 75AH maintenance-free batteries. An onboard battery charger is also included.
The company says an ergonomically designed handle also puts all controls within easy reach for maximum operator comfort and convenience. Forward- and reverse-drive switches are located on both sides of the handle to accommodate left- or right-hand operation. A turtle speed setting reduces drive speed by 50 percent for more precise positioning control when working in tight quarters, the company says. Dual articulating front casters provide smooth travel on rough or uneven surfaces. An auto-reversing belly switch protects operators from potential injury when walking the unit backwards, and an automatic brake halts travel when the drive/steering handle is released.
