Raymond introduces new pallet truck series

With the launch of its new 8000 Series pallet trucks, The Raymond Corporation delivers best-in-class durability and the most efficient, productive pallet trucks on the market today. The 8000 Series trucks are material handling workhorses that stand up to tough applications while also maximizing productivity and contributing to more sustainable operations. In fact, third-party testing by the United States Auto Club verified that Raymond® pallet trucks are up to 33 percent more energy efficient and 6 percent more productive than those offered by competitive manufacturers.*

“The Raymond 8000 Series was built with one thing in mind: the customer,” says Sue Rice, pallet trucks and stackers product manager for Raymond. “This line of pallet trucks was intelligently designed to exceed the performance expectations of our customers — from durability and productivity to ease of maintenance and low cost of ownership. At Raymond, we call this Eco-Performance: a commitment to continuously improve to help customers maximize productivity and efficiency, minimize cost of ownership, and operate more sustainably.”

The new 8000 Series pallet trucks offer optimized features to move more product in less time. The differences begin with advanced engineering, which helps achieve peak efficiencies through the use of industry-leading materials and components, and fine-tuned designs, which maximize performance. Because Raymond lift trucks are built using top-of-the-line fabrication, assembly and quality-control processes, the end result is a stronger, more efficient and more productive pallet truck.

Created with durability in mind, the 8000 Series pallet trucks feature significant increases in material strength that enable them to meet heavy-duty application needs. Components are reinforced for reduced wear, delivering more uptime and lower costs. Additionally, all components used in the 8000 Series are backed by an industry-leading undercarriage warranty — Raymond Asset Protection™ — and Raymond’s five-year structural and Standard+ warranty with three-year or 6,000 hour coverage of undercarriage components.

The pallet trucks in the 8000 Series boast a number of user-friendly features, such as roomy operator compartments with padding and multiple lean points, accessory bars with lights and fans, large storage totes, and additional caster options. The trucks

also offer PowerSteer, which helps operators reduce steering efforts by up to 90 percent and provides speed-sensitive steering for optimized productivity and precise, smooth control at all speeds.

Enhancements to the 8000 Series will be announced at ProMat 2015, held March 23 to 26 in Chicago. Raymond will exhibit at booth No. 3219.
