Safety First with the Combi-WR Pedestrian Reach Stacker

For the handling of lighter loads, many operations increasingly favor pedestrian trucks which are considered to be safer than ride-on forklifts, particularly in busy areas of production plants or warehouses. Combilift launched the Combi-WR Walkie Reach stacker in response to customer feedback indicating a demand for this compact and cost effective unit, and applications are by no means limited to pallet handling. Longer loads such as packs of timber or boards can be easily picked and placed in narrow aisles thanks to its innovative design.

Safety was also high on the agenda in the development stages and the design incorporates a number of features to ensure utmost safety not only for the operators but also for other personnel, as well as members of the public who may also be in the vicinity.

The Combi-WR is the first purpose built pedestrian reach stacker with the ability to operate in a VNA aisle of just 2.1m. With a lift capacity of 1,450kg, its excellent ergonomics make it easy and stress free to operate. The unique patented multi-position tiller enables push button rotation of the rear wheel parallel to the chassis and back, allowing operator to remain in the safest possible position when placing and picking in narrow aisles, namely at the side of the unit rather than between the truck and the racking. This improves forward visibility and greatly reduces the risk of incidents in tight confines.

2-speed operation is controlled by a rabbit/turtle switch, and speeds can also be adjusted or customised to suit the level of the operator’s experience. Dual side by side front wheels allow easier execution of a 90° turn with no tyre scrub, which typically occurs with the traditional configuration of one wheel behind another. Safer travelling around corners is also ensured as the Combi-WR reduces speed when cornering.
