Canada



Press release date: July 1, 2012

Brampton, ON, Canada - Blue Giant Equipment Corporation has launched the PDS40 electric straddle truck, the latest in the company's successful line of Big Joe by Blue Giant AC-powered forklifts. 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.

"The PDS40 builds upon the proven performance standards of the PDS Series by incorporating state-of-the art lift truck technology," says Jeff Miller, Blue Giant's Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. "It's designed and engineered to meet and even exceed the demanding requirements of the retail store stock rooms with their higher lift height requirements and confined spaces.

The PDS40 can handle freight loads of up to 4,000 lbs. at 24" load center. The high torque AC-drive motor delivers responsive acceleration and smooth performance throughout the battery's discharge cycle. The braking system is mounted on the motor armature shaft, multiplying the braking power via the drive transmission. Travel speed remains constant relative to the throttle position regardless of load weight. The ergonomic operator handle enables easy and steady control of the travel, lifting, and lowering functions.

"In situations where heavy loads must be carried to higher lift heights, the PDS40 delivers the controlled performance and maneuverability needed for steady use in tight spaces," says Barry Miwa, sales manager for Blue Giant's industrial trucks division. "Compact dimensions, minimum steering effort, and minimal maintenance requirements make it an ideal solution for all material handling needs."
