SUMMERVILLE, SC – Linde Material Handling has released a new walkie pallet truck to its class III line, the Linde MT18 electric pallet truck. As many industries continue to see growth, there is an increased need for electric pallet trucks to move products from suppliers to shelves. The Linde MT18 electric pallet truck offers a lightweight, easy-to-use lithium-ion option to help operations run more efficiently, longer, and increase productivity.
This true hand pallet substitute offers a load capacity of 4,000 lbs. and is tailored for light to medium-duty operations at a weight of only 374 lbs. The compact and lightweight design provides easy operation in tight spaces, including mezzanines, making it an excellent tool for almost any application. Designed with the operator in mind, Linde Material Handling’s ergonomic control handle minimizes operator fatigue and keeps the operator confident throughout the day. And the long, low-mounted tiller head with a vertical tiller arm, including twin grip steering, improves maneuverability in confined spaces and ensures precise and comfortable handling. As a result, operators encounter less strain from unnatural movements with easy-to-reach control buttons and a wrap-around handle that permits fingertip operation for utmost comfort and efficiency.
“Customers in the fulfillment industries have been asking for a walkie designed to meet their hassle-free needs. This includes highly maneuverable equipment, involving worry-free charging, and backed by a brand and service network that they can trust,” said Mick McCormick, director of product and project engineering. “Linde Material Handling listened closely and has delivered the answer to their needs. With an attractive price, quick delivery, and no worries charging, the Linde MT18 electric pallet truck delivers what distribution companies need.”
The Linde MT18 electric pallet truck is powered by a 48V / 30Ah lithium-ion battery that accelerates productivity and efficiency with a run time of up to three hours and quick charging. In contrast to a lead-acid battery, the lithium-ion battery does not experience watering or charging issues. Therefore, it eliminates health and safety obstacles associated with battery charging rooms and required ventilation. In addition, the Linde MT18 electric pallet truck keeps busy operations moving with charge times of only 2.5 hours and lightweight batteries that are easily replaced with a separate charger, keeping downtime at a minimum. Operators can also manage their time more effectively with the Linde MT18 electric pallet truck’s multifunction display, giving operators up to the minute information on the truck’s status. And with the Linde MT18 electric pallet truck’s DC motor, standard torque and maintenance intervals are already extended to keep the truck on an operation’s floor.
“The compact design and extraordinary maneuverability make the Linde MT18 electric pallet truck an excellent fit
for loading & unloading OTR trailers,” said Mick McCormick, director of product and project engineering. “Combined with the hassle-free lithium-ion battery and ease of either charging or changing out the battery quickly, this powered hand truck solves the dock and delivery challenges the distribution industry has faced.”
Keeping the operator secure, confident, and productive is the strategic design of the Linde MT18 electric pallet truck while also focusing on features that mitigate unnecessary injuries. This specific focus is evident with the low chassis design to help avoid potential tripping hazards, and during stops, the truck sits securely in place during loading and unloading. These features keep the operator steady and secure, even while transporting loads up to 4,000 lbs.
