India, July 29 -- Blue Giant Equipment has launched the PDS40 electric straddle truck
, featuring a regenerative braking system, smooth turning ability, and advanced ergonomics, the PDS40 offers greater operating flexibility and longer run times than DC-powered models.
Its predecessor, the straddle truck
, drove into racks for such deep putaway of loads, limiting productivity.
It works in narrow aisle configurations like a straddle truck
, with the versatility of a counterbalanced truck.
The Walkie Straddle Truck
baseleg openings range from 33" up to 49" to meet your specific needs.
So equipped, a $12,000 stacker or straddle truck
becomes a $75,000 or more semi-automated forklift-AGV, Thornton says.
All are available in 24-and 36-volt single-reach, double-reach, and straddle truck
Two developments of the time that would have a profound impact on warehouse design were the lift truck sideloader l attachment and the straddle truck
. Prior to these innovations, industrial trucks required relatively wide aisles in which to maneuver while handling and stacking 48 by 48 in.
You also have the load-handling advantages of a counterbalanced truck, combined with much of the maneuverability of a straddle truck
. A walkie reach truck requires wider aisles than does a walkie straddle stacker (the reach mechanism adds to the truck's length), but generally it's faster at pallet handling.
The key to efficient pallet storage and retrieval in the narrow-aisle concept is the reach truck and the straddle truck
. In operation, both types of trucks turn 90 deg while in the aisles and face the racks.
With a 3,000-ib load capacity rating, this walkie reach truck combines the versatility of a counterbalanced truck with the narrow-aisle capabilities of a straddle truck
Straddle carriers are also referred to as straddle trucks
that are used as freight handling equipment.
