Powered stackers

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

The PowerStak family of high-performance, fully powered stackers from Presto ECOA feature both powered lift and powered drive, making operation nearly effortless for any user regardless of size or physical strength.

All models have 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 per cent 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. Power is delivered by two sealed, maintenance-free AGM batteries.

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 use. Available capacities range from 1,000 to 3,000 pounds with lifting heights up to 150 inches.
