Redesigned Stackers are More Stable, Maneuverable than Ever
Press release date: January 28, 2014
NORTON, MA -- Presto Lifts has redesigned its PowerStak™ line of compact, fully powered stackers for improved performance and ergonomics.
Several new features have been added as standard equipment on all PowerStak models. A turtle speed setting reduces drive speed by 50% for more precise positioning. Straddle legs fabricated from solid steel provide additional rigidity and eliminate deflection, even under maximum load (2,200 lbs.). The electrical system has been upgraded with a reliable, industry-recognized controller and contactors. Power is now delivered by two sealed, maintenance-free AGM batteries, and the new heavy-duty built-in charger has fuse protection and a rugged casing. Other changes include a new component arrangement for better heat dissipation and better maintenance access.
PowerStak units are built on a short yet extremely stable wheelbase to enhance maneuverability, even in tight quarters. An ergonomically designed handle puts all controls within easy reach for maximum operator comfort and convenience. Forward- and reverse-drive thumb switches are located on both sides of the handle to accommodate left- or right-hand operation. The unit's narrow mast and offset control handle ensure a clear forward view, with virtually no blind spots. An auto-reversing belly switch protects operators from potential injury when walking the unit backwards, while an automatic brake halts travel when the drive/steering handle is released.
Available in fork-over design for use with open-bottom pallets or adjustable straddle design for use with closed-bottom pallets, the new PowerStak models are more reliable than ever. Maximum lift heights range from 62" to 150".
