UniCarriers offers new walkie stacker series

UniCarriers Americas Corporation (UCA) offers two powerful stacker models, the Platinum WSX, walkie straddle stacker and the Platinum WCX, walkie counterbalance stacker. Both models are built for high performance and easy maintenance, and have capacities of 3,000 and 4,000 pounds, with lift heights up to 18 feet.

The WSX is a versatile, hard-working straddle stacker that easily operates in tight aisles with heavy loads. WSX models work efficiently in narrow aisle areas, or any application that demands a maneuverable machine.

The WCX counterbalance stacker is built to handle heavy loads and reach higher heights, to do the job of larger and more expensive sit-down rider models. WCX is ideal for manufacturing and other demanding applications.

“The WSX and WCX are created for efficiency and built for years of service with reliable components tested on thousands of our forklifts across various working environments,” said Mark Porwit, director, marketing and product management, UniCarriers Americas. “Both models have an AC, brushless drive motor that uses fewer components and requires less maintenance. We designed these stackers with advanced technology and economical pricing in mind.”

Features of the UniCarriers WSX and WCX models include:

· 5.2-horsepower, AC-drive motor and controller system

· Heavy-duty hydraulic pump motor

· Digital CAN network, with communications through only four wires in the control handle

· Onboard diagnostics through optional multi-function LCD display

· Hall-effect speed and acceleration control

· Smart electric brake (engages when handle is raised)

“We listened to our customers and designed the WSX and WCX with fewer moving parts, easier access to key service points and built to exacting standards for the ultimate in quality, durability and uptime performance,” said Porwit.
