Big Joe Makes Big Impact With AC-Powered Forklifts

March 24, 2015
With so much changing in distribution, Big Joe has been busy developing a new breed of lean equipment to meet material handling needs.

Big Joe rolled out its new line of electric forklifts and showed off its well-known J1 Joe or the "Joey" at a unique test track display at the ProMat show in Chicago. 

Big Joe Strategic Products Manager Jeff Mull says the "Joey" has an interchangeable battery and is best used for order picking, small boxes and parts. The steering and lift mechanisms are designed to be intuitive. There's also an emergency disconnect. 

Check out the video below where MH&L's Lauren Watters tries to overcome a fear of heights as she gives the Joey a test drive.
