How Much is an Electric Stacker Truck?
An electric stacker truck is a key piece of machinery in any transportation or storage environment. They essentially transport pallets quickly and safely from point A to point B and can also lift loads up to raised platforms. Sometimes referred to as an electric pedestrian stacker or ‘walkie’ stacker, this type of machinery utilises motors and hydraulics to help lift loads with ease and boost workplace efficiency.
When choosing the right electric stacker truck, it can be difficult to understand just what you are searching for due to the many scenarios these machines can be utilised in. With so many options available, finding the right stacker at the right price is essential. With this in mind, we are going to discuss two factors that determine their price and how much you can expect to pay for an electric stacker truck.
Two Factors That Determine Price:
One major factor which determines the price of this machine refers to the different stack heights.
The single-stage mast is used in applications where overhead clearance is not a concern and low lift heights are common. Ideal for outdoor environments.
Two-stage mast provides free lift and the inner channel can extend for greater lift heights when required to. Ideal for stacking and double stacking indoor jobs where overhead clearance is limited.
The three-stage is the most common mast type in forklifts. The higher lift capabilities of the three-stage forklift makes it well suited for a wide array of warehouse jobs and can lift up to almost 16 feet. Ideal for forklifts that need to reach above-average heights.
Finally, the four-stage mast has sets of rails and a second set of chains to provide the highest reach among forklifts. Ideal for high stacking in specialised warehousing operations. It can also lift to heights up to 20 feet but requires extra caution due to their higher lifting ability.
Another major factor which determines the price of an electric stacker truck is the manufacturer. For example, when searching for a two stage mast from Jungheinrich, you can expect to pay from £3,670 for the lowest range and £15,000+ for the premium range. For those perhaps on a tight budget, it’s definitely worth finding a cheaper option that will still perform the job without relinquishing quality and longevity.
