Original Press Release:
Efficient Pallet Management with the BPT-50 from Blue Giant
Brampton, ON, July 1, 2002 - Engineered with quality components, the BPT-50 Hand Pallet Truck from Blue Giant easily handles heavy-duty applications, maximizes productivity and decreases
The BPT-50 features a load capacity of 5,000 lb allowing users greater flexibility in the size and weight of loads. The heavy-duty, galvanized cast pump housing is protected from collision hazards, is corrosion resistant and provides protection from dirt and water contamination.
The pump features a controlled lowering speed valve with overload protection for safe handling of pallets. The pumping action to raise the forks is quick, efficient and back saving. The 8.5" raised fork height is quickly achieved with only 10 full pump strokes. The stroke action is set at 75% of a typical working range - thus eliminating strenuous movement and overexertion common to models requiring a full 90-degree pumping action.
The 3 position (up/down/neutral), user-friendly handle is ergonomically designed with no pinch points and features an insulated foam grip that provides comfort and protection from extreme temperature changes. The tiller handle is impact reinforced at the shaft for extra durability and longevity.
The BPT-50 frame features heavy-duty reinforced forks for maximum rigidity. The 2.9" lowered fork height provides increased efficiency for pallet management. The fork tips are rounded to avoid damage to pallets and include lead in rollers for easy pallet entry and exit. The self-lubricating wear points equal less maintenance and eliminate messy grease fittings that can contaminate cargo.
The BPT-50 Hand Pallet Truck from Blue Giant proudly boasts a two year pump and five year frame warranty - the rugged dependability you would expect from a workhorse pallet truck, guaranteed.
