Drawing Number: AD-722-2015-06


Fork-truck Battery Changing Solution  – 90 Degree PU 1250 X 1000 Special: 

As part of an ongoing relationship with Hoppecke Batterien, Acres produce a number of bespoke fork-truck battery changing solutions 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.

For more information about the Hoppecke battery changing solution see: The trak® Xchange PU.

Design Scope:
This bespoke battery changing solution is fixed at 90 degrees to a modified PPT (Powered Pallet Truck) providing a solution for warehouse operations with space restrictions. A 1250mm X 1000mm bed size has been created to accommodate very large batteries. The pendant controller enables full control from the side of the unit. A hydraulic assisted braked roller secures the battery during transit.
