Presto Lifts Inc. has introduced a line of fully powered stackers with a lifting height of 62 in. and a 1,500-lb. capacity. The new Power Stak™ Lite line is a group of light-duty stackers with a narrow mast design and offset control handle to provide operators with clear views and almost no blind spots.
The handle puts all controls within reach of the operator. Forward and reverse thumb switches are located on both sides of the handle to accommodate left- or right-hand operation. An auto-reversing belly switch protects operators from potential injury when walking the unit backward, while an automatic brake immediately halts travel when reversed.
The Power Stacker is built on a stable yet short wheel base for maneuverability in tight quarters. Power is achieved via two 12-V, maintenance-free batteries. A 110-V, built-in charger also is a standard feature. Units are available in fork-over design for use with open-bottom pallets or adjustable-straddle design for use with closed-bottom pallets.
