Press release date: July 16, 2002

New Model SW22, a redesigned intermediate-duty electric straddle stacker equipped with a separately excited motor, is available from Multiton MIC Corporation, Richmond, Va. The new SW22 stacker, a low cost handler for warehouses and distribution centers, is ideally suited for light to medium duty applications. Successful applications have been found in: low volume distribution centers, warehouses in manufacturing plants, processing facilities and assembly lines, among others.

The walkie stacker's motor design provides several advantages when compared to conventional stackers, such as: controlled top speed regardless of load, controlled speed on ramps, ramp start without rollback, programmable operating speeds and no high maintenance directional contactors, among others. A fully electronic control system reclaims up to 15 percent of battery energy when the drive switch is released.

Standard items include a steering handle head with two butterfly levers for forward and reverse movement, and a separate lever that actuates lifting and lowering. The stacker is available with either a single mast for 62-inch lift, or telescopic masts for lifts up to 112 inches or 128 inches. Maximum load capacity is 2,200 pounds with a load center of 24 inches.

Stacker Details

The stacker has a high-pressure hydraulic pump with 1.8kW motor. The 64-inch long SW22 has a single, large diameter (8-inch) steering wheel for maximum maneuverability. Stacker loads are supported by a combination of two rear-mounted 5-inch diameter casters and two load wheels mounted at the end of the straddle legs. Drive and hydraulic pump motors are powered by two deep cycle, 12V-100 Ah batteries with a built-in charger. The stacker is available with standard oversized, adjustable straddle legs with inside dimensions from 35 to 49 inches. The telescopic masts have a 7-inch free lift for easy access through doors or on trailers.
