20. March 2013 | Comments (1)
The unit is a cross between a set of podium steps with a two metre high platform, and a stock picker with powered lift shelf. It is pushed around by hand but a box or load weighing up to 60kg can be lifted or lowered at the push of a button to a height of three metres manual versions, using a hand crank, can lift up to almost five metres.
The machine allows the whole stock picking process to be safely handled by one person removing the need for a second person to pass items up or down, or the need to climb down the steps while carrying anything. The unit is 875mm wide and just over two metres long.
The LT 07E three metre electric unit retails in Australia for around $9,000 (7,000/£6,000) The manufacturer says that it is designed to be a simpler competitor to the Crown Wave platform, but costing around 35 to 50 percent less.
The platform guardrails can be set up to various configurations to provide improved ergonomics and easy access for stock picking, and while a gate prevents anyone accidentally stepping back off the platform.
The unit is manufactured at the companys Queanbeyan, New South Wales facility and built to Australian and European standards and directives.
