The PowerStak family of high performance, fully powered stackers from Presto ECOA offer performance advantages over manual stackers and cost savings versus forklift trucks, the company says.
Compact design, low overall weight and quiet operation allow them to fit into a wide variety of work environments. Because they feature both powered lift and powered drive, operation is nearly effortless for any operator, Presto ECOA says.
The company says all models feature an ergonomically designed control handle that puts all functions including lift, lower, forward and reverse within easy reach for operator comfort and convenience. Redundant design allows all controls to be accessed by the operator’s right or left hand. An instrument control panel features a key switch, emergency e-stop, battery status indicator and hour meter.
For operator safety, an auto-reversing belly switch protects operators from potential injury when walking the unit backwards, while an automatic brake halts travel when the drive/steering handle is released. A Turtle Speed switch reduces drive speed by 50 percent to give operators more precise control when working in high traffic areas, tight quarters or accessing items in racks.
Base and straddle legs fabricated from solid steel provide additional rigidity and eliminate deflection, even under maximum load. The electrical system features a reliable, industry-recognized controller and contactors. Power is delivered by two sealed, maintenance-free AGM batteries, Presto ECOA says.
PowerStak stackers are available in multiple configurations including fork-over for use with open bottom pallets, straddle for use with any style pallet including closed bottom and counterbalanced for loading and unloading trucks or for use where straddle legs would cause interference. Available capacities range from 1,000 to 3,000 lb. with lifting heights up to 150 in.
