CLARK expands its warehouse equipment range: electric hand pallet trucks and electric stackers
Higher, faster, further
Duisburg, March 2017. CLARK continually builds on its product range in the growth market of warehouse equipment. Following on from the launch of the CLARK Compact Range for low lift pallet trucks and stackers with a load capacity of 1.0 – 2.0 tonnes, CLARK is once again expanding its warehouse equipment range. CLARK CEO Rolf Eiten comments: “By launching the electric hand pallet truck WPio12 with lithium-ion technology and the electric stacker PSX16 with a platform and side protection guards, we are not only expanding our product range in a targeted manner but also tapping into new applications and sales markets.” CLARK’s warehouse equipment range now includes more than 15 different series in the fields of electric low lift pallet trucks (1.2 – 2.0 t), electric stackers (1.0 – 2.0 t), electric reach trucks (1.4 – 2.0 t) and electric three-wheel tow tractors (4.0 – 7.0 t).
Electric hand pallet truck WPio12
Electronic lifting and driving, a low tare weight of just 120 kg including the battery and a usage period of up to three hours with a fully charged battery (24V 20 AH) – the electric hand pallet truck WPio12 is not only CLARK’s first vehicle with lithium-ion technology but also represents new heights of efficiency in the conventional hand pallet truck market. The lithium-ion battery can be recharged from flat in just 2.5 hours. Interim charges are also fully possible. With up to 1,000 charge cycles, the maintenance-free battery has almost double the service life of block batteries. Convenient replaceable batteries available from the factory also make it possible to use the machines for longer. The WPio12 (1.2 t capacity) can be used in place of any classic hand pallet truck, e.g. for transporting pallets over short distances, in warehouses, in showrooms or for loading/unloading lorries. Excellent manoeuvrability and compact dimensions make for economical and precise load handling. For example, the hand pallet truck can be optimally transported on a lorry. At just 1,390 mm, the turning circle has intentionally been kept small and the minimal L2 size of 390 mm (length including the back of the fork) prevents pallet location losses when transporting the machine on a lorry. Deliveries of the new little powerhouses are expected to commence from the end of the 2nd quarter of 2017.
Electric stacker PSX16
Whether for loading and unloading lorries, transporting heavy materials in a warehouse or heavy-duty industrial use, the new CLARK electric stacker PSX16 with a capacity of 1.6 tonnes expediently expands the current CLARK product range: side support rails, a platform provided as standard and lifting heights of up to 5,800 mm meet customer requirements for a maximum throughput rate. The outstanding value for money is also typical of CLARK. The PSX16’s reliable and low-maintenance AC motor enables travel speeds of up to 8/8 km/h. The electric power steering system with proportional speed reduction when cornering enhances both safety and comfort. The CLARK stacker comes as standard with 375 Ah batteries but can also be fitted with batteries up to 24V 500 Ah. Powerful traction batteries as well as the standard lateral battery extraction enable two and three-shift operations. The folding platform fitted as standard guarantees optimum usage conditions both as a platform machine and a pedestrian one. The proportional hydraulics are also fitted as standard and contribute to the vehicle’s impressive productivity. Deliveries of these new vehicles for heavy-duty industrial use are expected to commence from the end of the 2nd quarter of 2017.
