The Raymond Corp.'s new Model 8900 pallet truck, available in 6,000- and 8,000-pound capacities, is ideal for dock operations, loading and unloading trailers, and transporting pallets horizontally.
The truck's fork carriage features new long-wearing components, which reduce downtime and maintenance costs. The pallet truck is also available with an optional operator-compartment sensor system. This system uses multiple light beam sensors embedded in rear operator-compartment housings. These sensors span the entry to the compartment so that when the sensors are blocked or the beams are not seen or emitted, a tone sounds, a message scrolls on the operator display, and the truck will decelerate to a stop if traveling. If the truck is stationary, it will not allow travel until the object blocking the sensors is removed or the beam is seen or emitted.
This pallet truck features Raymond's ACR System, which provides quick acceleration, smooth operation, and greater energy efficiency. The truck's AC motors deliver more run time per battery charge and experience less reduction in truck performance as the battery discharges, even with a fully loaded pallet. AC technology also minimizes downtime and reduces cost of ownership because it has fewer wearable parts and requires less maintenance than DC systems.
