A top UK importer of high quality materials handling equipment is taking the next steps towards facilitating a safe and efficient future for UK warehouses with the introduction of an innovative new order picker. Pallet Trucks UK, a West Midlands-based leader in manual handling tools and accessories, has announced that the 4.5 metre fully electric order picker known as the EOP3-4.5, is now available to UK customers through its online store.
The 300kg capacity equipment provides a working height of up to approximately 6.5 meters, and has been designed and manufactured as a space-saving alternative to portable manual steps used within many warehousing environments. Featuring an integrated telescopic mast, the low profile solution aims to boost production and efficiency while addressing some of the biggest challenges facing warehouses post-Brexit.
Pallet Trucks UK Managing Director Phil Chesworth said, “As a direct result of Brexit, we’ve seen many warehouses stockpiling goods from the European Union and narrowing their aisles to optimise capacity. The introduction of this new fully electric order picker model provides an accessible and affordable solution to the obstacles that are rising as a result of work area limitations, helping operators to sustainably increase pick rate in challenging conditions, achieving faster and more accurate picks without compromising on safety.”
In addition to facilitating a more efficient future, Pallet Trucks UK is also making it easier for warehouses to increase safety within the workplace by selecting a product with extensive integrated safety features. The EOP3-4.5 boasts a spacious 650x690mm platform size for optimal operator stability during picking, and automatically reduces the maximum driving speed from 4 km/h when lowered to a slower 1.5 km/h while raised. The equipment also includes a drop valve, which enables the operator to override the system and manually lower the platform should an emergency situation arise.
While the EOP3-4.5 has been imported by Pallet Trucks UK from Europe, charging the order picker is simple with a standard UK plug and single phase 240v supply. All orders include an EC Declaration of Conformity which demonstrates that the equipment meets all relevant product safety directives, and a LOLER certificate which confirms that the EOP3-4.5 adheres to strict Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations and criteria.
The 4.5 metre fully electric order picker is available now direct from the Pallet Trucks UK website, with delivery to England, Wales, Scotland, and the Scottish Highlands. Customers can also choose to collect the EOP3-4.5 from the Pallet Trucks UK warehouse, located at the Pensnett Trading Estate in Kingswinford, West Midlands.
