The SPE120XR, SPE120XRD and SWE120XR have joined the BT Staxio P- and W-series from Toyota Material Handling Europe. Equipped with retractable masts, a compact chassis and the ability to handle different types of pallets, the Japanese giant says these models are designed to save space and increase efficiency.

This unique range combines the compactness of a stacker with the flexibility of a reach truck. This results in a versatile solution that can handle any pallet type up to a height of 4.8 metres. The range consists of a pedestrian stacker (SWE120XR), a platform stacker (SPE120XR) and a double pallet handler (SPE120XRD). The short turning radius and the retractable mast make this solution ideal for working in narrow aisles, tight spaces and adaptable to a wide variety of environments, including cold store. The models can also be optionally fitted with a side-shift or fork positioner to increase productivity.

With all driver functions integrated in the handle (driving, lifting, lowering, reaching, tilting, side-shifting and fork positioning) the new models are very easy to operate. Optimised Truck Performance adjusts speed when cornering and the Totalview concept allows for excellent visibility through the mast to the fork tips at any height, offering safe driving conditions. The platform SPE-version with ‘one-touch’ foldable gates and in-height adjustable steering arm further improves driver ergonomics and productivity.

The new stacker range is also highly energy-efficient and available with Lithium-ion battery as an option. This battery technology is ideal for intensive operations thanks to a reduced energy consumption of up to 30%. Furthermore, Lithium-ion provides an exceptional battery life and the option for quick charging at any time – eliminating the need for battery change in multi-shift applications.

“Especially in narrow areas you will benefit from the flexibility, energy efficiency, user-friendliness and high vertical and horizontal performance of the new BT Staxio W- and P- models. These stacker trucks with retractable mast will help you save storage space and increase efficiency”, says Martin Mimer, Product Management Warehouse Trucks at Toyota Material Handling Europe.

The new BT Staxio SPE120XR(D) and SWE120XR will be one of the many products, solutions and technologies that Toyota Material Handling will be presenting during CeMAT 2016 (May 30th to June 3rd). Come and see us in Hanover at Pavilion 32.

Working in the sub-zero world of the cold store demands the highest standards of visibility, reliability and comfort. Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks has now developed a brand-new range of cold cabins for its SENSiA reach trucks, which the company says are tailored to work productively and reliably – even in temperatures as low as -35 degrees.

Like every product in the Mitsubishi cold store line-up, SENSiA cold store models have been specified with cold-resistant cabling and waterproofed electrics: protecting against damage from cold and moisture. While SENSiA’s thermostatically controlled heaters protect critical components, its hydraulics have been optimised to perform in the coldest of conditions.

Recognising a reach truck is only as productive as its operator, designers at Mitsubishi looked for ways to do more than keep operators warm in their cabins.

Developed for energy efficiency, each cabin is generously insulated and features a 1700 W heater to ensure the optimum working environment for each operator throughout the longest shifts.

Available on standard chassis reach trucks, cabins are spacious by design. Every element of the operator compartment has been specified to keep it uncluttered: from its intelligent fingertip controls to its folding steering wheel console.

Controls are kept within easy, avoiding unnecessary movement to reduce the risk of operator fatigue. For added control, every cold store model benefits from SENSiA’s intelligent SDS (Sensitive Drive System). Fitted as standard, SDS automatically tailors the truck’s performance to the specific needs of driver and load. As a result, it delivers smooth start and stop movements and agile, stable performance.

Visibility is paramount in any lifting operation. Like every SENSiA reach truck, cold store cabin models offer 360-degree visibility. The cabin’s heated side windows protect against frost, misting and condensation, ensuring exceptional visibility and safe, productive performance.

A clear-view, crash-proof polycarbonate roof – fitted as standard – means operators benefit from maximum upwards views, while being shielded from falling debris of any shape or size.

The cabin’s robust steel frame, which features a reinforced collision guard, offers added protection to operator, bodywork and door when working in tight spaces.

SENSiA is the latest addition to the Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks range of lift trucks dedicated to cold store applications. Other products in the range include VELiA, its low level order picker; electric counterbalance trucks, including the popular EDiA EM and its family of pallet trucks, PREMiA.
