Warehouses and distribution centers alike are constantly on tight deadlines for receiving and shipping goods. The supply chain never rests, and according to an article in supplychain247, Mondays are the busiest day of the week for fulfillment centers operating five days a week. With weekend shoppers filling their carts and placing their orders for the week to come, this constant consumer demand makes it virtually impossible to slow down. That is why every aspect and function of a logistical network must always seek the latest advancements in technology and equipment to expand their advantage on productivity and efficiency. Those requirements make the new Linde MH MT18 an absolute necessity for any operation, focusing on confidence, ergonomics, handling, and service. Find out how your operation can work better, smarter, and more efficiently with the all-new Linde MH MT18.
Powered by a Lithium-ion battery, your productivity and efficiency are accelerated. With lead-acid batteries, operations have constant concerns with keeping up on consistent watering and charging schedules. How often have you had your delivery truck down due to lead-acid battery issues? There’s no watering, spills, fumes, acid, equalizing, or cleaning with the Lithium-ion battery. And a full charge only requires 2.5 hours, providing you with up to 3 hours of operation. The lightweight batteries are easily replaced with a separate charger enabling quick and convenient charging for optimum run time. Like today’s electronics, batteries can be charged whenever convenient to your operation instead of managing your operation around charging your batteries. A busy warehouse or distribution center thrives on movement, and with the Linde MH MT18, products get to where they need to go on time.
The movement of products keeps the world moving. Arming an operation with the latest technological advances gives companies a cutting edge on increasing productivity while also keeping the operator confident. Hand trucks and manual power jacks, although in the past useful, have taken a toll on the manufacturing worker. Lost time incidents for injuries that occurred while operating the device have taken operators off the factory floor and cost companies dearly in operations downtime. The Linde MH MT18 Electric Power Truck is the complete hand pallet substitute, designed with the operator in mind, preventing unnecessary injuries. The low chassis helps keep the driver’s feet from getting under the truck and helps avoid potential tripping hazards. And your operator can feel confident during loading and unloading as the truck sits securely in place during stops, keeping the operator steady and secure, even while transporting loads up to 4,000 lbs.
Ergonomic Design and Handling
At 394 lbs., the lightweight design of the Linde MH MT18 minimizes operator physical input and fatigue, creating a highly productive and stress-free environment. With the easy-to-reach control buttons allowing fingertip operation, and wrap-around handle, preventing operators from moving their hands and arms unnaturally – there’s no wonder there are 20,000+ Linde MH-designed control handles in the field! Operators can depend on secure operation with the ergonomic long, low mounted tiller head with vertical tiller arm improves maneuverability in confined spaces and ensures precise and comfortable handling. The Linde MH MT18 provides easy operation in tight areas because of its small footprint, making pinwheeling become much easier in a truck for local deliveries and maneuvering in a full tractor-trailer. The compact frame also enables use in mezzanines.
Periodic maintenance is a must for any truck to ensure optimal functionality and maintain continuous operation. But servicing a truck doesn’t have to mean lost time in production. The Linde MH MT18’s multifunction display gives the operator up-to-the-minute information on truck status, allowing the operator ample time to plan any upcoming maintenance. And with the Linde MH MT18’s DC maintenance-free motor, regular torque and maintenance intervals are already extended to keep the truck on an operation’s floor.
