Electric Walkie Stacker Selling under Toyota Material Handling’s Tora-Max brand for light- to medium-duty applications, the company has introduced a 24-volt lithium-ion battery-powered walkie stacker, a walk-behind unit that carries pallet loads. Rated for light-duty use in applications including general manufacturing, the stacker has adjustable base legs for additional stability when carrying wider loads. It has a maximum load capacity of 2,600 pounds. The hand grips are ergonomically angled, with a directional thumb wheel and fingertip controls for ease of use. An LCD indicator displays current battery level, and the battery offers fast recharging times.

What’s new? The walkie stacker, which debuted in March.

 Benefits Improved operator safety and accountability. A travel speed limiting switch sets caps for the maximum speed it can travel, while a pin-code access panel and RFID card access reduce the potential for unauthorized use. The walkie stacker offers easy handling and maneuverability in trailers and narrow aisles, or other spaces where counterbalanced forklifts may not be ideal. It can maximize productivity for operations facing a shortage of workers, including experienced forklift operators.
