Compact, Fully Powered Stackers

Presto Lifts, Norton, Mass., redesigned its PowerStak line of compact, fully powered stackers for improved performance and ergonomics. Presto Lift PowerStak

New features include a turtle speed setting that is said to reduce drive speed by 50% for more precise positioning. Straddle legs fabricated from solid steel provide additional rigidity and eliminate deflection, even under maximum load of 2,200 pounds. The electrical system was upgraded with a reliable, industry-recognized controller and contactors. Power is now delivered by two sealed, maintenance-free AGM batteries, and the new heavy-duty built-in charger has fuse protection and a rugged casing.

Other improvements include a new component arrangement for better heat dissipation and better maintenance access. PowerStak units are built on a short yet extremely stable wheelbase to enhance maneuverability, even in tight quarters. An ergonomically designed handle puts all controls within easy reach for maximum operator comfort and convenience.

Forward- and reverse-drive thumb switches are located on both sides of the handle to accommodate left- or right-hand operation. The unit’s narrow mast and offset control handle ensure a clear forward view with virtually no blind spots. An auto-reversing belly switch protects operators from potential injury when walking the unit backwards, while an automatic brake halts travel when the drive/steering handle is released.

Available in fork-over design for use with open-bottom pallets or adjustable straddle design for use with closed-bottom pallets, the new PowerStak offers maximum lift heights that range from 62-150 inches.
