Trak® Xchange Battery Changing Machine – PU 1250 x 650


Fork-truck Battery Changing Machine  – PU 1250 X 650: 

As part of an ongoing relationship with Hoppecke Batterien, Acres produce a number of bespoke fork-truck battery changing 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 machine is fixed to a PPT (Powered Pallet Truck) providing a fast and efficient mobile battery changing solution for 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.
