The 7000 Series Reach-Fork® trucks feature productivity-enhancing lift and lower speeds. The product includes regenerative lowering, which produces energy when the forks are lowered to increase battery shift life and reduce the need for downtime. The machine delivers 9% more productivity and 21% more energy efficiency than competitive models. An intuitive control handle decreases training time for new operators. An A-frame suspension with steel springs provides a solid connection between the wheels and frame. The steered idler wheel eliminates caster snap and offers full-time traction and steering. An external encoder, see-through reservoir and fewer moving parts simplify maintenance and reduce downtime.
