ImageFor narrow-aisle applications, The Raymond Corporation says its 9000 series Swing-Reach lift trucks now offer features that save energy, such as AC technology for longer battery run times, regenerative lowering that automatically recharges the battery and LED compartment lights. Raymond also says the exclusive ACR System, which combines AC drive motor and AC lift motor, provides quicker acceleration, smoother direction changes and quiet, precise traction and lift. The ACR System delivers more run time per battery charge and experiences less reduction in truck performance as the battery discharges for greater reliability, according to the company. The lift trucks can be used for both pallet handling and case picking for flexibility in changing warehouse environments and narrow aisles.
