Pallet stackersMaster Maneuverers
Up to two tons, up to six meters high, and mostly in narrow aisles with little space for maneuvering where time is of the essence – the perfect job for the pallet stackers from Linde Material Handling. When transporting, loading, unloading, and storing goods, Linde pallet stackers effortlessly stack heavy loads on top of each other, on shelves, or in truck loading areas. This makes them indispensable in small warehouses and outdoor operations, as well as in large warehouses for transporting heavy and bulky goods, depending on the version used. Linde has the ideal truck for every transport route, load capacity, and lifting height.
The ergonomic tiller head gives the operator easy access to all control elements and supports intuitive and efficient operation of the truck. Thanks to the low articulated tiller on the pedestrian trucks, the driver always moves at a safe distance from the truck. The Linde Load Management assistance system provides an additional layer of Warehouse Safety: It indicates when the load capacity is approaching the limit, optimizes the travel speed according to the work situation, and displays the maximum storage height.
Pallet stackers fall into three categories: manual, semi-manual, and fully electric. Manual – also known as hydraulic pallet stackers – use lifting hydraulic systems, which means that the physical effort required to operate them is very high. Semi-electric pallet stackers have a lift motor, but transport is manual. Electric pallet stackers have both a lift motor and a drive motor. Linde Material Handling pallet stackers are all fully electric, with no exceptions.
Pedestrian and Platform: Pallet Stackers from Linde
Pedestrian Pallet Stackers
Pedestrian pallet stackers, where the operator controls the truck with the tiller while walking behind or alongside, are an economical solution for transporting loads over short distances. Thanks to the electric motor, goods can be lifted safely and precisely to the required height. In operations where excellent maneuverability and a small turning radius are required, pedestrian trucks really come into their own. Whether in workshops, refrigerated warehouses, greenhouses, garden centers, or supermarkets, transporting goods is one of the specialties of the pedestrian pallet stacker.
Pallet Stackers with Folding Platform
Pallet stackers that can be used either as a pedestrian or ride-on truck are ideal for storing and retrieving medium-weight loads over short to medium distances. The trucks with a folding stand-on platform are particularly efficient in areas such as external warehouses, delivery areas, and indoor warehouses where long distances are not covered but medium-heavy loads have to be transported. Depending on the required lifting height, load capacity, and door clearance, Linde has the ideal model in its portfolio.
Platform Pallet Stackers
Platform pallet stackers make light work of ground-level transport over longer distances, as well as the lifting and lowering of loads. Lithium-ion batteries are available as an option and can be charged easily and quickly at any socket. Thanks to their endurance and the ergonomic standing or seated workplace, platform pallet stackers are particularly suitable for transporting high loads over longer distances, for example in external warehouses and delivery areas, as well as for loading and unloading trucks, and on production lines. Depending on the required lifting height, load capacity, and local conditions, the pallet stackers can be equipped with a double or triplex mast.
Linde pallet stackers are suitable for a wide range of applications, from goods handling in warehouses with narrow aisles to storing bulky goods and stacking boxes in racking systems. Linde offers pallet stackers with different lifting heights for every application. Linde pallet stackers are available in two versions to suit the required application: classic pedestrian trucks with a tiller and ride-on models with a standing or seated platform.
Pallet stackers have to move quickly from A to B, maneuver around narrow aisles, and transport heavy loads – and the safety of the operator is always the top priority when doing so. The long, low-mounted tiller on the pedestrian trucks ensures sufficient safety clearance between the truck and the operator at all times. The end-of-stroke resistance prevents the tiller from jerking back when released. The design of the tiller handle protects the operator’s hands, while the low-lying chassis prevents potential foot injuries. The optimized mast view ensures safe maneuvering. The Linde Safety Speed safety system automatically adapts the travel speed in relation to the tiller angle. The speed is automatically reduced when cornering and the truck brakes automatically when the drive switch is released.
Ergonomics play a particularly important role in pedestrian pallet stackers. These trucks are often used for demanding jobs over short to medium distances. In order for operators to be able to steer the pallet stacker with as little physical exertion as possible, Linde uses servo-assisted electric steering in many models. This increases the maneuverability of the trucks, making load handling easier. A high-torque motor on the pallet stacker ensures rapid acceleration, which can be increased with a booster effect if required. This enables the trucks to perform safely and reliably even in highly demanding driving situations, such as on steep ramps.
Compact and versatile: the most accurate way to describe Linde pallet stackers. The trucks are built for narrow aisles and tight storage areas. This is all thanks to their space-saving dimensions and maneuverable tiller. The tailor-made technical equipment provides additional support: With the creep speed function, the pallet stacker can be maneuvered at 1.5 km/h with the tiller upright – ideal for very tight spaces. The Soft Landing function prevents wear and tear on the fork and protects the load when lowering. On top of this, Linde has also equipped the pallet stackers with an optional initial lift. This makes it easier to manage loading ramps, inclines, and uneven ground.
Linde pallet stackers combine maximum availability with minimal maintenance costs. The trucks boast an exceptionally stable construction with all electrical parts securely installed. The robust chassis and the maintenance-free AC motor also increase the service life. Depending on the type of use, the truck only needs to be serviced once a year. Thanks to the sophisticated truck design and technology, service technicians can carry out maintenance quickly and easily. All relevant truck components are easily accessible behind the motor cover. All service data can be quickly viewed on a laptop via the CAN bus system. This data can be used to set the performance parameters to suit the type of operation of the truck.
The fleet management system Linde connect provides access to all the information. A digital multi-function display keeps the operator informed of the current truck status at all times. The battery charge status, operating hours, and maintenance status can be viewed at a glance on the display. A warning light indicates when maintenance is required. connect thus makes fleet management more cost-effective and increases the availability of each individual truck.
