Semi-electric lift truck

Oct. 31, 2011
The unit is designed to operate in narrow spaces.

The ESET33 electric-battery powered pallet truck handles loads up to 3,300 lb at up to 2.8 mph. The unit can travel 3 mph when unloaded and brakes automatically when the throttle is released. The on-board 24-V battery pack operates over 8 hr and charges overnight through a 110-V outlet.

Fork options include 48-in. length with 20.5-in. or 27-in. widths. The five manual-pump cycles raise the load to full height. The 180° steering allows use in confined areas.
