Drawing Number: AD-1082-2016-05


Fork-truck Battery Changing Machine  – PU 1250 x 1000: Dual Height

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 powered battery changing unit is fixed to a PPT (Powered Pallet Truck) providing a fast and efficient mobile battery changing solution for 24 hour 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.

The Dual Height design provides increased lift range enabling one unit to work effectively where multiple battery sizes and multiple fork lift trucks are used.
