The WP 3000 Series Walkie Pallet Truck
The WP 3000 Series Walkie Pallet Truck is built to be the most durable electric pallet jack in the industry. It provides exceptional maneuverability and control that is vital for demanding applications where pallet trucks must maneuver in tight spaces, withstand impacts, deliver power on demand and give operators controlled performance. The WP 3000 incorporates technology such as AC traction and e-GEN braking. The brushless AC motor technology is designed to provide responsive acceleration, smooth direction changes and consistent performance throughout the battery discharge cycle. The e-GEN braking system utilizes full-motor braking to provide operators with smooth, consistent braking; and, because braking occurs in the motor, energy is returned to the battery for further efficiency gains. Both systems improve uptime by reducing routine maintenance and adjustments associated with motor brushes and friction brakes, leading to greater reliability and lower service costs.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
