This new range of electric pedestrian trucks is ideal for retailers, printing shops, workshops or garden centres, or even small to medium-sized businesses that routinely need to move heavy individual items.
The range includes EJE M13 (1300kg) and EJE M15 (1500kg) electric pedestrian pallet trucks. The AC drive motor provides fast and efficient transport of pallets over short distances. An intelligent automatic shutoff system turns the truck off automatically after 30 minutes of non-use, conserving not just energy, but also the battery and other components as well.
All of these trucks are fitted with a maintenance-free three-phase AC motor and a maintenance-free gel battery with integrated charger as well as an ergonomic Jungheinrich tiller, offering fast, efficient and safe throughput.
National Jungheinrich product manager Greg McNamara said: “The new series of vehicles produced by Jungheinrich provide the operator with a large number of ergonomic and performance-related advantages in comparison with hand pallet trucks. Moving loads in these applications can be difficult if the operator only has a conventional hand pallet truck. The initial effort required to get the load moving, and then stopping, can be a possible OH&S risk or if not, sometimes impossible with a manual pallet truck.”
The Jungheinrich EJE M13 and EJE M15 electric pallet trucks are now available from NTP Forklifts Australia.
