More walkie-stacking control
Operators of electric walkie stackers will have more control over their movements with the PWT15 and PWT18 models from Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks.
The Houston manufacturer’s new 3,000-3,500 lb. trucks (pictured) are AC-powered with an electric power steering option for more precise control at any speed. These trucks should be used for applications involving repetitive stacking where travel distances are minimal, such as storage and staging areas, skid, cart or worktables.
Powering up using a key or optional keyless access pad saves battery life while an auto shutdown conserves run time. And an advanced regenerative braking system smoothes out directional changes while reducing brake pad and component wear.
A special control function allows the operator to pinwheel with the handle in a vertical position while pressing the crawl speed button. And an emergency button stops, then reverses movement if the operator gets caught in close quarters.
