The new product range featuring the ECV 10 basic vehicle has been expanded to include the highly compact C variants ECV 10 C and ECV 10i C with an initial lift. The high-lift pallet trucks from STILL have been specially developed for light duty use and can fit into tight spaces and narrow passages. Under exceptional warehouse and flooring conditions, operators benefit from a usage period of up to two hours a day for an average maximum weight of 500 kg. "This makes our new high-lift pallet truck ideal for light duties, particularly in retail, and the perfect entry-level product in warehouse technology," says Florian Meyke, Product Manager for Class III warehouse trucks at STILL.
While the ECV 10 can carry up to 1,000 kg, the ECV 10i C is able to transport well up to 1,200 kg on its initial lift. Electrical driving, lifting and lowering are designed to significantly enhance goods handling performance. Lift heights of up to 3,277 mm ensure storage space is perfectly utilized. What’s more, the four-wheel chassis offers exceptional stability, enabling operators to effortlessly transport the maximum load at the relevant maximum lift height.
The trucks come with fully encapsulated, integrated batteries that - depending on the vehicle - can produce up to 120 Ah and are designed to release zero battery gases. Thanks to a built-in charger, the batteries can be recharged almost anywhere at any time using standard sockets, making the trucks highly flexible to use. A battery status indicator comes as standard and displays the operating hours worked, thereby avoiding any unpleasant surprises.
Thanks to special lift masts - a telescopic lift mast in the ECV 10 and a mono-lift mast in the C variants - the fork arms are perfectly in view, as the left-mounted tiller ensures operators can look past the side of the mast to see the load. The design of the mast on the standard lifting gear allows operators to see down the middle of the mast, too. "Both mast types therefore ensure operators can always see the load and can pick it up and lower it down safely and quickly," Meyke concludes.
