New Stack-n-Go™ fully powered compact stackers from Southworth Products Corp offer many ergonomic features. Built on short but stable wheelbases, they provide maximum maneuverability, even in tight quarters.
Ideal for use in light manufacturing, warehousing, assembly, and retail facilities, these versatile, multi-purpose machines are designed for transporting loads on pallets and stacking loads up to 7½ feet high. They can also serve as adjustable workstations for loading and unloading. Stack-n-Go™ powered stackers have narrow, 62-inch-high masts and offset control handles to give the operator a clear view of what’s up ahead, with virtually no blind spots.
The ergonomically designed handle puts all controls within easy reach, for maximum comfort and convenience. Forward- and reverse-drive “thumb” switches are located on both sides of the handle to accommodate left- or right-hand operation. An auto-reversing “belly switch” protects the user from potential injury when walking the unit backwards, while an automatic brake immediately halts travel when the handle is released. Power is achieved via two 12-volt batteries, and a 110-volt built-in charger is standard. Stack-n-Go™ stackers are available in fork-over design for use with open-bottom pallets and in straddle design for use with closed-bottom pallets. Fork-over models have fixed forks that are 21 inches or 27 inches apart (outside dimension). Straddle models have an adjustable fork carriage for easy fork adjustment, from 12½ inches to 27 inches apart (outside dimension). Straddle legs are adjustable from 40 to 50 inches apart (inside dimension). One Stack-n-Go™ straddle model features a 2-stage extendable mast that enables the unit to lift loads of up to 2,500 pounds 7½ feet high (90 inches). All other models have a lifting height of more than 3½ feet (43 inches) and a lift capacity of 3,000 pounds.
