Big Joe announces 2 new additions to JOEY family of access vehicles
Big Joe Forklifts (Lombard, IL) is proud to introduce two new additions to their tremendously successful Joey family; the Joey Zero Electric Access Vehicle and the Joey eStep Semi-Electric Access Vehicle.
The Joey Zero Electric Access Vehicle, model J0-118 - is a compact and flexible solution for those looking to replace ladders and improve productivity in warehouse, retail and other industrial and commercial operations. The Zero can help workers do a wide range of elevated tasks more safely including those found in order picking, shelf stocking, inventory management, maintenance, and assembly. With a maximum operator platform height of 118" and a total vehicle capacity of 750lbs (200lbs front load tray, 250lbs front load deck, 300lbs operator's compartment), the Zero packs a great deal of capability into a modest 57" x 29.5" vehicle footprint. Ergonomic and logically orientated controls provide for intuitive and accurate operation, while a permanent magnet drive motor and on-board AGM batteries deliver up to 4 hours of continuous operation on a single charge. Standard features include a powered front load tray, electronic power steering, forward projecting blue light and integral 110v smart charger.
The Joey eStep Semi- Electric Access Vehicle is a manually propelled unit with powered lift that provides companies with a safe alternative to low level ladders in the workplace. The DC lift motor and twin post hydraulic elevating system on the eStep are capable of lifting an operator up to 42" while remaining in a fully enclosed compartment. When elevating the operator compartment on the eStep, an automatic floor lock deploys improving stability. Locking rear swivel casters are additionally provided for elevated use on smooth surfaces. Simple and intuitive controls include fingertip lift/lower buttons and an emergency power disconnect. Manual movement and positioning is easy even when loaded, thanks to the four large polyurethane caster wheels and high mounted rear push bars. Two large steel load trays on the front of the eStep allow the operator to access multiple items without having to raise and lower repeatedly, and a load platform on the chassis can carry additional materials from location to location. Standard equipment includes a cup holder, a key switch to limit access to approved personnel, and an integral lithium battery & integral 110v smart charger.
