Prime-Mover Introduces High-Tech, Walk-Behind Pallet Truck

MUSCATINE, IOWA, U.S.A - Prime-Mover's new SMX45 walkie, low-lift pallet truck delivers cutting-edge technology and programmed operation along with a 4,500-pound (2,000-kg) capacity and the best turning radius in the industry.

The SMX45 can be programmed for up to 10 operating modes that can be controlled by PIN entries from the keypad on its state-of-the-art control handle. The modes can be used to limit operating performance for novice operators and in congested areas, yet provide maximum speed and productivity when appropriate. The special Turtle Torque function provides a power boost to climb obstructions, and an anti-roll system prevents unintended rolling in tight spaces and on inclines. A Battery Discharge Indicator with lift interrupt and 5-function hour meter that comes standard on the handle provides for close management of truck operation and minimizes the possibility of component or battery damage due to operation at low-voltage levels. Other features include a comprehensive service display, time-out function, controller access network (CAN Bus) technology to log operating and maintenance records and diagnose problems, and an optional 110-volt Plug-N-Go battery charger.
