Still´s Ergonomic long-distance runners increase goods throughput

After the successful market launch of the new SXH 20 and SXD 20 series of stand-on low lift and stand-on high lift pallet trucks last year, STILL now presents the corresponding sit-on machines for medium and long-distance transport.

The new model series comprises the FXH 20/25 N sit-on low lift pallet truck, the FXV 14/16 N sit-on high lift pallet truck and the FXD 20 N double deck pallet truck. These trucks have ergonomically designed driver’s workplaces with a comfortable seat and adjustable footplate to give the driver maximum convenience so he or she can work without becoming fatigued. The trucks show their talents in heavy-duty industrial service, where high battery capacities and lithium ion technology ensure high availability.

The benefits of these agile trucks are in the details: the trucks are provided with a powerful, reliable 3-kW three-phase 24-volt drive motor. This low-maintenance motor ensures not only high performance but also lower energy consumption. The operator benefits from high goods handling performance at low operating costs. With battery capacities of up to 500 Ah, the trucks have sufficient energy for multi-shift operations. Sideways battery change via a roller track is available to the user as standard for a quick battery change. The trucks are also available with Li-Ion battery options with capacities of 205 Ah to 410 Ah. The trucks’ easily accessible service points also allow easy maintenance with short downtimes.

The new series of trucks have an extremely robust chassis consisting of a torsion-resistant steel frame that predestines the machines for arduous service. A four-wheel drive system ensures optimum traction at all times, and guarantees safe, stable standing. Rounded fork ends allow quick insertion into the pallet, which contributes to high goods throughput and safe, secure load handling.

Another special highlight is the trucks’ high level of driving comfort: STILL trucks are fitted as standard with an individually adjustable footplate and ergonomic driver’s seat that highly absorbs vibrations on the human body. This makes sure that working through the whole shift is easy on the back. Moreover, the STILL Joystick 4 Plus allows particularly sensitive, intuitive hydraulic control. This permits wrist-friendly lifting and lowering operations and driving functions to be carried out without any grip changing. STILL trucks display their performance strengths in the most confined spaces and narrowest aisles. This is ensured by the electrical steering, with which the truck can be operated easily and precisely. The number of steering wheel turns for 180° can be chosen individually.

As usual, STILL has set the bar high in relation to safety: proven safety features such as Curve Speed Control, which automatically adjusts speed to the steering angle to allow safe cornering, and a lift height dependent speed limit, increase safety when storing and retrieving goods and protect the operator and load from injury or damage. The STILL FleetManager 4.x option allows individually customised access control and protects the truck from unauthorised use. Operating data and impact events can also be recorded if required.
