UniCarriers has unveiled new pallet trucks.
UniCarriers has introduced a new pedestrian pallet truck series with a central tiller arm for the first time.

The new MDW and MDE trucks provide safe handling of goods on steep or uneven surfaces and are suitable for use both indoors and outdoors.

Compact pedestrian pallet trucks offer an exceptional versatility and an extensive variety of uses - from replenishing supplies in production areas to order picking and internal transport over short distances.

The MDW and MDE are included in the portfolio to offer two compact models with a central tiller arm alongside the existing ones with tiller arms off centre. These new models feature ergonomically shaped hand grips to ensure slip-free steering of the truck. The key operating controls are positioned within immediate reach of the handle.

The MDW is launched as a regular pallet truck with a maximum speed of 6 km/h and load capacities of 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 T and a lift height of 220 mm.

The MDE is able to handle 2.0 T on the straddles and features a lift height of 735 mm with a capacity of 700 kg. This allows users to adopt an ergonomic posture during order picking jobs. Both truck variants feature two different performance modes, which can be activated with the key switch.

Additional equipment includes a load backrest, LED working lights and cold store equipment for safe working practices down to temperatures of -35 deg. C. An equipment bar is available to attach accessories such as a bottle holder, document holder and computer holder.
