The new 8000 Series pallet trucks from Raymond are built to take a pounding, while reducing the cost of ownership for warehouses and DCs. The 8000 Series trucks feature extra steel in the platform; thick steel pull rods, castings, forks and skid bars; and a reinforced battery box. The trucks feature Raymond's ACR System that employs a low-maintenance AC motor to deliver and maintain a high level of performance, even as loads increase and the batteries discharge. The system also provides fast acceleration, high torque and smooth direction changes that allow workers to move more pallets per shift. The AC system has fewer moving parts than DC systems to minimize downtime and save on parts storage. The trucks are also designed with ergonomics in mind. The control handle and grab rail are angled to fit the natural position of the hand. All operating functions are placed within easy reach. Thumb wheels and conveniently located one-step triggers for jogging the truck simplify operation. Convenient lean points and a cushioned platform with 525 square inches of foot space let operators ride in comfort.
