Stacker systems.

Stackers from the company allow workers to lift, transport and position up to 3,000 pounds at a time. Available with a manual or electric drive, the stackers feature a battery-powered electric lift with lifting heights of up to 80". Designed to handle any type of pallet or skid, they are available in two basic configurations. The fork over design works with any type of open-bottom pallet or skid, and the straddle style accommodates any pallet or skid, even those with closed bottoms. Standard fork lengths are 45" for fork-over models and 42" for straddle units, but forks are available in other lengths. The space between straddle forks is adjustable, as is the space between straddle legs. The stackers are said to be highly maneuverable and feature an ergonomically contoured pallet-truck-style handle, a high-visibility mast and dual wheel casters with toe guards for easy, safe positioning, according to the company. Controls are located on the handle. (Southworth Products)
