The new models feature a shorter head length, dual steer tires, and ComfortStance suspension to maximize operator comfort. The lift trucks are available in load capacities from 3,000 pounds to 5,000 pounds.
To provide a smoother ride, the ComfortStance suspension and cushioned floor mat isolate operators from impact and vibration. The Raymond Corp. says the suspension, standard on Model 4250 and optional on Model 4150, adapts automatically to each operator’s weight and features nine parts for simple maintenance. Operator comfort is further enhanced by a low step height into the ergonomically designed operator compartment, which includes a durable cover with contoured padding, a three-tiered scalloped armrest, a multifunction control handle and an optional extended operator backrest.
The three-wheel trucks can perform right-angle stacking maneuvers in less total area. The dual-steer-wheel design allows one wheel to counter-rotate during turns, resulting in a shorter turn radius and reducing tire loading and steering friction. The 3,000 and 3,500-pound capacity models offer a short battery compartment to reduce head length and optimize maneuverability in crowded docks and smaller places. The angled front cover allows operators to see the forks engage loads on the floor for more accurate handling and stacking. Models 4150 and Model 4250 are both powered by Raymond’s ACR System.
