Drawing Number: AD-971-2016-02


Fork Truck Battery Change Device – PU 1250 x 650 Dual Height

As part of an ongoing relationship with Hoppecke Batterien, Acres regularly produce a number of bespoke fork truck battery changer units to suit customer requirements. Our product has improved incrementally over the years giving our designers and fabricators a wealth of experience to tackle almost any request.

The Acres PU battery change device is fixed to a PPT (Powered Pallet Truck) providing a fast and efficient mobile battery changing solution for around the clock warehouse operations.  The PU is powered by a hydraulic power pack which, in partnership with a pair of powerful magnets exchanges batteries between fork trucks and battery charging racks.

Acres are currently exporting custom machines to Germany, France, Belgium, Spain, Poland, Holland, Slovakia, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, South Africa and China as well as serving the UK.

This bespoke design features a dual height 1250mm x 650mm bed. This design also features a laser guide to assist the operator with levelling the bed and speed up the exchange process.
