Nissan launches order picker range

Nissan has launched a new range of low level order pickers with a modular format that enables users to specify an order picker tailored exactly to the requirements of their application – from fixed operator position and low lift forks to rising operator platform and high lift forks.

The range has been designed to cater for the growing variety of order picking operations in modern distribution and manufacturing warehouses, where the need is increasing for highly intensive and often 24-hour a day working. Features available for optimum productivity include an advanced steering system and the option of increased stability to override hazardous manoeuvres automatically.

High travel speeds (12km/h unladen, 11km/h laden), rapid acceleration and fast fork lift and lower are provided via a 2.2kW AC motor coupled to a 600Ah battery.

For smooth running and maximum traction, a “friction force” suspension system ensures that the drive wheel maintains constant optimum pressure on the ground, while the compact nature of the truck makes it suitable for negotiating tight picking aisles. Load handling is up to 2,500kgs. For extended work cycles, a power steering system developed for order picking features an adjustable, telescopic column with motorbike-style handlebars.
