Powered pallet and stacker trucks

28 November 2016

Toyota Material Handling UK has launched the BT Levio LWE130 powered pallet truck and the BT Staxio HWE100 stacker truck.

The BT Levio LWE130 and the BT Staxio HWE100 are powered warehouse trucks that are productive in a wide variety of lower-intensity applications. The LWE130 powered pallet truck can transport loads of up to 1.3 tonnes over short to medium distances with a travel speed of up to 5.5 km/h; while the HWE100 truck can stack up to 1 tonne to heights of up to 2 metres.

The compact size and lightweight design make them suitable for working in confined spaces such as shops, supermarkets or in the back of delivery vehicles. Their low noise levels would make them suitable for environments such as hospitals or for making out-of-hours deliveries in residential areas.

Both models are equipped with a low-maintenance AC motor that offers durability and strength, as well as low energy consumption. They also come with a built-in mains charger for fast and easy charging. The LWE130 pallet truck offers the option of an in-vehicle charging system which is great for the transport industry as it allows for opportunity charging when travelling on delivery vehicles. In-vehicle charging features intelligent control so it only operates when the vehicle transporting the truck is running.

For improved operator comfort, these trucks are designed to be user-friendly with programmable driver parameters. To ensure safe and efficient use, they are both designed to be compatible with the I_Site truck management system that controls operator access through the use of a PIN code, monitors truck utilisation and detects possible impacts in real time.
