Often known as scissor-lift pallet trucks, the powerful high-lift units are designed to bring pallets to heights which make them easier for operators to work with. They improve ergonomic conditions for operators, and help to reduce repetitive strain injuries in employees who would need to use manual labour without these trucks. In the case of the HS-0809 model, the basic truck was primarily created to help load pallets into small vans. The other truck, which has an in-built tilting mechanism, can be used to position loads or components at an angle which makes them easier to be worked on whilst they are loaded on the truck, or to tip a container so that contents cascade towards a certain side of the container ready for operators to unload or arrange.
Both of the new trucks can lift up to 800kg, and due to their efficient design, can also be used as basic pallet trucks. As well as being multifunctional, the units were also designed with safety and stability in mind; the fixed fork stabilisers offer great solidity and strength, while features such as a slower descending speed when loaded with heavy pallets ensure that cargo is kept safe, and that the employees unloading the pallets are protected.
