GREENE, N.Y. — The Raymond Corporation now offers more versatility and higher productivity in a sit/stand reach truck. The new Raymond® Model 7600 Reach-Fork® truck allows the operator to sit or stand, depending on the material handling task being performed. The seated position enhances the range of operating positions, increasing operator comfort and lessening fatigue. The operator may choose the seated position for longer runs. This newest addition completes the Raymond 7000 Series of Reach-Fork trucks.
Raymond invented the Reach-Fork truck more than 50 years ago, revolutionizing the world of warehousing and distribution. The 7000 Series has become the industry’s benchmark, allowing customers to choose the Raymond Reach-Fork truck that is right for them. Raymond offers the industry-leading universal stance, which offers excellent maneuverability for high stacking and tall loads and is a more productive solution for high-throughput applications. Also offered is the dockstance, which is best-suited for short travel and for operators who are accustomed to sidestance operation. Raymond offers a range of high-performance, customizable trucks to match every customer’s exact specifications.
The new Raymond Model 7600 truck features an ergonomic seat that flips up and out of the way to allow the operator to use the lift truck in a standing position. For seated operators, a cushioned and suspended seat is provided. Two separate deadman pedals also are featured: one solely for seated use, and the other specifically for standing operation.
“This truck was designed to accommodate the ranges in operator size that we see in material handling today,” says Susan Comfort, product manager, Class II products, for The Raymond Corporation. “An ergonomic operator compartment, and adjustable seat and steering column provide flexibility for different lift truck operators.”
The open view mast has no center cylinder for unprecedented operator visibility; and faster, more efficient operations in rack interface work applications.
The Model 7600 Reach-Fork lift truck is available in 4,500-lb. capacity. Raymond Deep-Reach® configurations offer an industry-leading 3,200-lb. capacity with deep reach capability. The Model 7600 lifts up to 37 feet and offers 18.25-inch and 21.25-inch battery compartments to meet the runtime needs for specific applications.
The entire 7000 Series of lift trucks offers performance, reliability and low cost of operation with Raymond’s exclusive ACR System™, which provides AC motors on both lift and drive. AC power provides smooth, precise load handling; quiet lift; and longer battery run time with less reduction in truck performance as the battery discharges.
