Four way forklift manufacturer Combilift has added a new product to its wide portfolio with its new Combi-WR Walkie Reach – the first pedestrian truck that the company has launched. Incorporating the benefits of AC technology in its traction, pump and steering motors, the Combi-WR has a lift height of 4.2m and a load capacity of 1,450kg. With electronic power steering, pantograph and side shift functions it is the only pedestrian reach stacker which can work in an aisle-width of 2m pallet to pallet.
“Following the success of our Aisle-Master range in the DIY sector and back of store retail operations, the Combi-WR answers the need for a cost effective narrow aisle pedestrian machine for low level storage for operation in areas where the general public may be present,” says Combilift MD Martin McVicar.
The multi-position tiller (patent pending) incorporates push button rotation of the rear wheel parallel to the chassis for placing and picking in the aisle. This enables the operator to remain at the side of the truck rather than at the rear, improving forward visibility. The risk of incidents in narrow aisles is reduced as the operator is not positioned between the racking and the truck. To rotate the rear wheel parallel to the tiller the operator merely needs to push the button again. Safer travelling around corners is also ensured as the Combi-WR reduces speed when cornering.
2-speed operation is controlled by a rabbit/turtle switch, and speeds can also be adjusted according to the operator’s level of experience. Dual side by side front wheels allow easier execution of a 90° turn with no tyre scrub.
