Walk-behind stackers – versatility and easy operation
Electric walk-behind stackers or ‘walkie stackers’ are a fast growing segment of the forklift market. Desirable both for their ease of use and low cost, walkie stackers are popular because of their lack of license requirements. This makes them perfect in locations where staff cannot be licensed, for temporary staffing or to reduce expenses.
Typical lift heights range from 2.1 to 3.9 metres and varied lifting capacities are available, from 500kg up to 1.5 tonnes.
New to the walkie stacker range in the last 10 years has been reach capability. Walkie stackers are characterised by their straddle legs that balance the load in front of the unit. Unfortunately these can become a liability when working with trucks or in tight racking. Reach capability allows the forks and carriage to extend outwards in front of the legs, allowing greater flexibility.
