Compact stackers a perfect fit for retailers

Big Joe S22 straddle stackers with two-stage masts are now available.  Capable of working a six foot aisle, the new models can lift 2,200lbs. as high as either 96" or 116". With the new lift heights, the S22 is a perfect fit for retail operations where a basic compact vehicle for pallet stacking is required.

The Big Joe S22 features a brushless permanent magnet DC drive motor and maintenance free AGM dry sealed batteries. Managers will appreciate the performance that these components deliver - a duty cycle of over 3.5 hours per charge, and fast opportunity charging capabilities via the on-board 120v smart charger.  The features of the Big Joe S22 combine to provide a highly capable vehicle that is easy to deploy and inexpensive to maintain.  Qualities highly sought in a retail environment and users looking for a basic general material handling solution.

Control Features

The S22 includes an unique off-set control tiller with a steering arc in excess of 180 degrees. This design greatly enhances maneuverability while also allowing the operator to walk adjacent to the truck during travel.  Drive, lift, and lower functions are located in the handle for convenience, and angle grips are designed for easy ergonomic operation with either hand. The unit’s tiller is mounted low for minimum steering effort making the S22 an easy truck to operate for most any individual.

Mast & Chassis Features

The new S22 two-stage masts offer the operator a wide field of vision between the mast channels and include a plexiglas mast guard, dual lifting chains, adjustable mast rollers, and a chrome plated lift cylinder for smooth lift/lower operation.  The chassis of the S22 is very durable featuring a unitized steel frame and rigid bolt-on adjustable straddle legs which can be set from 38" to 50" ID in 4" increments. The pin style carriage allows the 42" forks a wide range of adjustment from 8" ID to 27.5" OD while a one piece power head cover allows for easy maintenance.

Big Joe S22 two-stage models are now available through dealers across North America and the Caribbean with prices starting under $7,500.00 complete.
