New warehouse equipment: WPio12 electric hand pallet truck and PSX16 electric stacker
CLARK continually builds on its product range in the growth market for warehouse equipment. CLARK CEO Rolf Eiten comments: “By launching the electric hand pallet truck WPio12 with lithiumion technology and the electric stacker PSX16 with a platform and side protection guards, we are not only expanding our product range in a targeted manner but also tapping into new applications and sales markets.” CLARK’s warehouse equipment range now includes more than 15 different series in the fields of electric low lift pallet trucks (1.2 – 2.0 t), electric stackers (1.0 – 2.0 t), electric reach trucks (1.4 – 2.0 t) and electricthree-wheel tow tractors (4.0 – 7.0 t).
Electric hand pallet truck WPio12
Electronic lifting and driving, a low tare weight of just 1200 kg including the battery and a usage period of up to three hours with a fully charged battery (24V 20 Ah) – the electric hand pallet truck WPio12 is not only CLARK’s first vehicle with lithium-ion technology but also represents new heights of efficiency in the conventional hand pallet truck market. The lithiumion battery can be recharged from flat in just 2.5 hours. Interim charges are also fully possible. With up to 1,000 charge cycles, the maintenance-free battery has almost double the service life of block batteries.
Convenient replaceable batteries available from the factory also make it possible to use the machines for longer. The WPio12 (1.2 t capacity) can be used instead of any classic hand pallet truck, e.g. for transporting pallets over short distances, ard guarantees optimum usage conditions both as a platform machine and a pedestrian one. The proportional hydraulics (are also) fitted as standard (and) contribute to the vehicle’s impressive productivity. Delivery of these new vehicles for heavy-duty industrial use are expected to commence from the end of 2017. in warehouses, in showrooms or for loading/unloading trucks. Excellent manoeuvrability and compact dimensions make for economic, and precise load handling. For example, the hand pallet truck can be optimally transported on a lorry. At just 1,390 mm, the turning circle has intentionally been kept small and the minimal L2 size of 390 mm (length including the back of the fork) prevents pallet location losses when transporting the machine on a lorry. Deliveries of these new little powerhouses are expected to commence from the end of 2017.
Electric stacker PS X16
Whether for loading and unloading lorries, transporting heavy materials in a warehouse or heavy-duty industrial use, the new CLARK electric stacker PSX16 with a capacity of 1.6 tonnes expediently expands the current CLARK product range: side support rails, a platform provided as standard and lifting heights of up to 5,800 mm meet customer requirements for a maximum throughput rate. The outstanding value for money is also typical of CLARK. The PSX16’s reliable, low-maintenance AC traction motor enables travel speeds of up to 8 km/h.
The electric power steering system with proportional speed reduction enhances both safety and comfort when cornering. The CLARK stacker comes with 375 Ah batteries as standard but can also be fitted with batteries up to 24 V 500 Ah. Powerful traction batteries as well as the standard lateral battery extraction enable two and three-shift operations. The folding platform fitted as standard guarantees optimum usage conditions both as a platform machine and a pedestrian one. The proportional hydraulics (are also) fitted as standard (and) contribute to the vehicle’s impressive productivity.
Delivery of these new vehicles for heavy-duty industrial use are expected to commence from the end of 2017.
