Raymond's Updated Reach-Fork® Trucks Lift Heavier Loads at Greater Heights

7000 Series trucks keep up with trend toward higher racking

GREENE, N.Y. - The updated 7000 Series Reach-Fork® trucks from The Raymond Corporation now perform storage and retrieval tasks at greater lift heights and with heavier load capacities. The Model 7420 lifts up to 421 in. (1,069.34 cm), and has a 4,500-lb. capacity and 3,200-lb. double deep reach capacity. The Model 7440 lifts up to 444 in. (1,128 cm), and has a 4,500-lb. capacity and 3,200-lb. double deep reach capacity.

"The enhanced mast height and load capacity, combined with Raymond's unique open view mast, are a perfect fit for warehouses with very tall racking," says John Colborn, reach truck director at The Raymond Corporation. "Warehouses and distribution centers are saving floor space by using higher vertical warehousing. These lift trucks are designed to meet those growing needs."

The 7000 Series trucks offer performance, reliability and low cost of operation with Raymond's exclusive ACR System(TM) with AC motors on both lift and drive. AC power provides quicker acceleration; smoother direction changes; and quiet, precise traction and lift. The ACR System also delivers more runtime per battery charge and experiences less reduction in truck performance as the battery discharges. Maintenance costs associated with labor and replacement parts are lower because AC motors have fewer wearable parts than DC motors.

The 7000 Series comes standard in the very popular universal (bidirectional) stance or the optional dockstance for both reach and double deep reach configurations.
