Doosan launches low level order picker

Doosan has expanded its product range with the LEKF 20 low level order picker.

The picker is designed and built at Doosan’s site in Germany. Wolfgang Dittmer, managing director of Doosan Logistics Europe, said: “The key to order picking is the ease of operation along with the comfort and safety of the operator, and the LEKF 20 really delivers.”

The truck has a compact chassis design for easy manoeuvrability and better access. New pedestrian buttons on the side of the truck allow the truck to travel forwards and backwards without assistance.

An presence sensing footplate senses when a person is stood on the order picker. It prevents the inadvertent operation of the tiller arm unless there is an operator on the truck.

“Up to 90 per cent of our equipment components are manufactured on our site, so when the UK market called for a specific product feature we were able to redesign the specification in the model to provide a bespoke product for their specialist applications,” said Dittmar.
