Available with manual or electric drive, they feature battery-powered electric lift and are capable of lifting heights up to 80 inches. Designed to handle most types of pallets, the stackers are available in two basic configurations: fork-over and the straddle style. Standard fork lengths are 45 inches for fork-over models and 42 inches for straddle units; forks are available in other lengths. The space between straddle forks is adjustable, as is the space between straddle legs.
