News Item: Lifter by Pramac Launches New Electric Pallet Truck

Lifter by Pramac, has launched a new motorised pallet truck for use in retail and warehouse environments.

The new Agile pallet truck is one of the fastest on the market, reaching a maximum of 5km/h with 100% battery operation to provide a safe and accurate materials handling solution delivering improved productivity, health and wellbeing for operators.

After undertaking several hours of testing in live warehouse environments and product development scenarios, the Agile will step change the materials handling sector for pallet trucks as it combines electric and manual functionality into one unit, offering convenient, safe and efficient use.

Using Lithium-Ion technology, Agile, offers faster charge times in just two hours for a full charge. Replacement batteries can also be changed easily enabling the operator to continue working without interruption.

Its lightweight and compact shape make it ideal for use in confined warehouse spaces and the quick lift option enables operatives to lift loads in just two strokes with a weight capacity up to 1.2 tonnes.

A key feature is also the two-wheel drive and electronic traction control which provides the operator with high stability and smooth operation on slopes and level floors.

Paul Jones, National Handling Manager from Pramac said: “In this era of robotization, manual and semi-electric pallet trucks still have an important role to play in helping goods to be loaded and moved across sites. We are delighted with the response to the Agile.  It is already in trial across several sites in the UK who are looking for versatile and robust manual pallet truck solutions that help teams work safely, and in an efficient manner.”

Incorporating digital controls, the Agile’s onboard computer provides diagnostic settings, on board trip to manage distances and a maximum speed setting, while the digital display makes it easy to control and operate the truck when in use.  

The Agile is available in the UK with two variants featuring the Agile and the Agile Plus which offers an IP54 rating for use outdoors and even higher power capability.
