Combilift has launched the Aisle Master-OP (AME-OP), a stand-on electric powered model that combines the features of a narrow aisle articulated forklift and an order picker for versatile operation in warehousing applications.
The main feature of this unit is the step-through operator compartment. The low floor height of just 11” enables convenient, single step access from both sides of the truck which speeds up order picking compared to the operator having to get on and off from a seated position.
The AME-OP truck has all the key features of the conventional Aisle Master—indoor/outdoor, for loading/offloading and for stock replenishment at other times during shifts when order picking is complete. The Aisle Master-OP is available in a number of variants, with lift capacities up to 3,300-6,000 lbs, lift heights up to 39 ft and can operate in aisles as narrow as 72”.
It features a patented chain steering system, which allows the truck to articulate more than 205°, with an inline drive motor and front drive axle assembly, all of which enable narrower aisle operation. The multifunctional programmable joy stick control lever in the operator compartment, which includes controls for the hydraulics and traction, is adjustable to enable comfortable and ergonomic working conditions for operators of all sizes. The Operator Presence Detection floor pad engages the parking brake automatically when the operator steps off the truck to carry out Order Picking. “
