PowerSteer option for Raymond's 8000 Series rider pallet trucks increases maneuverability and productivity

The Raymond Corporation now offers a PowerSteer option on its 8000 Series rider pallet trucks to reduce the effort required to maneuver a pallet truck, resulting in increased operator comfort over the course of a shift. The PowerSteer feature is available on the Raymond Model 8400 end rider, Model 8500 center rider and Model 8600 tugger trucks to improve productivity in dock, horizontal transport and low-level order picking applications.

The Raymond PowerSteer option provides consistent, responsive steering among multiple pallet trucks regardless of fleet size because of its AC-powered motor and controls. The Raymond ACR System reduces maintenance with no wearable parts or brushes, delivers more run-time per battery charge and provides enhanced response to operator commands.

Raymond center rider and tugger trucks with the PowerSteer option also feature an adjustable-height handle to accommodate a range of operator heights and preferred operating positions. Additionally, center rider and tugger trucks with the PowerSteer option automatically slow down when turning corners to provide smooth, controlled operation.
