JLG launches stockpicker family
Purposely designed for the piece picking and maintenance industry
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, launched the first of three all new drivable stock picker (DSP) machines.
Designed by JLG’s engineers in Tonneins, France, the DSP family will be available in three picking heights; small (4.13m/13.55ft), medium (5.64m/18.5ft) and large (7.18m/23.55ft).
The DSP-M allows the operator to piece pick comfortably at a height of 16.4ft picking height. “This revolutionary range of stockpickers with help of our material handling partners,” says Jan-Willem van Wier, sr. product marketing manager for EMEAIR at JLG. “The market for material handling and stock picking is growing rapidly. There is a need for specialised access equipment; with features similar to forklifts such as the controls, mast design and operator ergonomics and the proven reliability and working height of an AWP.”
Design details for the product family include a patented, virtually maintenance-free new mast structure without cables or chains for extra rigidity. Patented intuitive controls will allow the operator to feel secure while allowing for a comfortable stance and rested posture improving operator efficiency. The series are powered by a single low maintenance AC drive motor supported by two caster wheels for optimal machine stability and operator confidence.
Adding to operator comfort and efficiency the DSP series have a low step-in height of just 20cm and an unobstructed access to the picking tray. The series can be equipped with various tray configurations like a standard manual or optional electric, tire or extendable tray, suited for different industry applications, adding to the products versatility. The DSP-M will be ready for shipment in July after which the other heights will follow later on in the year.
