Powered Product and Material StackersNovember 1, 2019
The PowerStak family of product and materials stackers from Presto Ecoa feature powered lift and powered drive, providing for nearly effortless operation and offering significant performance advantages over manual stackers and significant cost savings versus forklift trucks, according to company officials.
The PowerStak’s compact design, low overall weight and quiet operation allows it to fit into a variety of work environments including warehouses, loading docks, manufacturing and assembly work cells, and more.
All models feature an ergonomically designed control handle that puts all functions, including lift, lower, forward and reverse within simple reach for operator comfort and convenience, with redundant design allowing all controls to be accessed by an 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 backward, 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 and tight quarters, or when 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 batteries.The stackers are available in multiple configurations including fork-over for use with open-bottom pallets, straddle for use with any style of pallet including closed-bottom, and counterbalanced for loading and unloading trucks or where straddle legs would cause interference. Capacities range from 1000 to 3000 lb. with lifting heights to 150 in.
