Yale Europe Materials Handling has released the MS20XD Platform Double Stacker, capable of loading two pallets at once, which can result in time and cost savings for the customer. 

“The MS20XD is not only beneficial for unloading and loading goods, but it is also an ideal candidate for crossdocking and ergonomic lifting applications,” says Monica Radavelli, product manager - warehouse at Yale.

The double stacker can be used in a range of warehouse applications, particularly in the food, beverage, retail and logistics industries. 

The ability to move two pallets at the same time with short forks makes the new model exemplary in congested areas.

“The multifunctional capability of the truck enables it to transport goods directly from trailer to the first levels of racking. For mixed applications, the low lift function helps the operator to stack shelves or feed production lines without excessive bending – keeping items moving and encouraging productivity thanks to this attention to ergonomic requirements,” she adds.

Customers can choose to power their solution with a lithium-ion or lead acid battery.

The MS20XD features beginner, average and expert driving mode selection. There are four additional customisable modes, where parameters such as traction speed, acceleration and deceleration can be programmed. 

If the truck makes contact with an obstacle when moving with the forks trailing, the anti-trapping function stops the truck immediately. The system then moves the truck a certain distance in the opposite direction at a slow speed to reduce the risk of operators becoming trapped in the platform.

“There are a range of additional options available with the MS20XD that enable us to tailor it to the specific needs of our customers,” says Radavelli. “We’re confident this versatile truck will be an efficient addition to warehousing environments across EMEA.” 

Meanwhile, Hyster has released a seemingly identical new model under the S2.0SD name.

The new Hyster stacker truck, which can also handle loads up to 2 T, enables double stacking and handling of open-sided pallet loads, as well as the transportation and loading or unloading of pallets stacked two-high in a trailer. It is particularly suited to logistics operations, retail, food distribution, and dock loading applications, where productivity in the transport and storage of palletised loads is necessary. 

For operator protection and comfort, the Hyster S2.0SD platform double stacker features a large platform with rubber floormat to provide excellent grip, and side/rear operator compartment panels. The truck provides an ergonomic lifting option for shelf replenishment operations with a two-stage NFL mast with lift heights of 1,660 mm, 2,020 mm and 2,980 mm. Applications with tight spaces can also benefit, thanks to the flexibility of a fold-up platform. Models with a fixed platform are also available.

Like the Yale model, the S2.0SD is also available with a lithium ion battery. 

The S2.0SD replaces the current Hyster P2.0SD model.
