GREENE, N.Y. The Raymond Corporation has introduced a 24-volt model to its family of Reach-Fork trucks equipped with the ACR System
Raymond’s exclusive, ACR System uses AC technology to deliver more truck uptime, fewer battery changes and lower maintenance costs, while enabling users to move more product faster, the company claims.
The 24-volt truck has a 14-inch battery compartment, and uses an AC drive motor to deliver more runtime per battery charge, and maintain full performance longer. It uses fewer amps per cycle, so users will save on batteries, chargers and downtime. By eliminating the requirement for drive motor brushes, AC technology also reduces service requirements and parts costs.
The company adds that the truck’s ergonomic features include a Universal Stance design to improve operator performance and productivity; logical, intuitive controls laid out in a comfortable configuration; a roomy compartment to accommodate multiple working positions; contoured padding for weight relief and comfort; a low step height to avoid unnecessary climbing; and a spring suspension and patented inertial dampener to reduce shocks and sways in the operator’s compartment.
The 24-Volt Reach-Fork truck is available in lift heights up to 270 inches, with capacities of 2,500 lbs., 3,000 lbs, 3,500 lbs., and 4,000 lbs. The truck is available in both reach and Deep-Reach configurations. A Dockstance version is available for side stance operation.
