Big Joe Forklifts (Wisconsin Dells, WI) has officially introduced the new CB30 and CB35 Walkie Counterbalance Stackers as a productive and safe alternative to traditional rider forklifts. Available in 3,000 lb. (CB30) and 3,500 lb. (CB35) capacities, these new walkie stackers are ideal for smaller facilities as a one truck solution or as a supplemental piece of equipment in larger facilities. The CB30/CB35 vehicles are an excellent choice when high speed travel is not required or where the use of rider forklifts may pose a threat to pedestrians. Specifically:
- The Big Joe CB30/CB35 stackers offer advanced load handling capabilities and maneuverability due to their updated controls and compact chassis design, which features a cast counterweight.
- With 4.6 inches of maximum ground clearance, these machines can easily traverse dock transitions, streamlining the process for unloading or loading trailers.
- New users will find the CB30/CB35 to be extremely nimble and able to make tight turns easily via standard electric power steering and a 180-degree steer arc.
- These compact machines are an asset in any general material handling applications, including warehouse, manufacturing and retail deliveries from ground level when a dock or lift gate is unavailable.
Big Joe’s well-known, easy-to-use designs carry into the new CB30/CB35 stackers with its intuitive and simple operation handle controls for forward and reverse travel. Additional features include proportional lift and lower levers for find load control, mass tilt, horn and a reversing switch for optimal safety. Standard features include a battery discharge indicator, key switch, hour meter and non-marking tires to protect facility floors.
