PU 1250 x 1000 Dual Height Special

Drawing Number: AD-1338-2017-09


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 PU 1250 x 1000 Dual Height Special 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.

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.
