In the material handling industry, there is always new equipment coming to the marketplace. But how do you know if this new equipment is valuable to you and your business? It is important to stay informed and be aware of what benefits the equipment holds for you. We are proud to offer not only forklifts, but also industrial vehicles of many brands, including Big Joe and Mariotti. Recently, both of these brands revealed new models that are sure to benefit your workplace.
Big Joe recently announced a new Task Support vehicle suitably named the J1 “Joey” Task Support Vehicle. Designed for simplicity, this vehicle is compact and makes working at an elevated height safe, easy and productive. The Joey is electric and runs over 4.5 hours on a single battery charge. Since it is electric, there are fewer moving parts, resulting in less maintenance upkeep for you. In addition, the Joey can carry a capacity to 1000 lbs. and has a 16ft working height, giving you improved productivity thanks to the elimination of stock ladders. The Joey has great steering, and can complete a full turn in a 72” aisle.
Mariotti is known for producing the most compact electric rider forklifts on the market and their newest model of AC forklifts are no exception. Mariotti’s new line of AC sit-down forklifts are able to work in tight, compact spaces where no other forklift can normally operate, each possessing capacities of lifting between 750lbs to 2,300lbs. This allows you to complete your work in different environments. These forklifts can drive through aisles as narrow as 31 inches, and heights as low as 75 inches. In addition, they can also maneuver through elevators and doorways and successfully distribute a heavy load. The Mariotti AC forklift has mast heights from 113” to 224,” with side shift and power steering. As with the aforementioned Big Joe, the Mariotti AC lift also has fewer moving parts and less maintenance needs. For added operator safety, the Mariotti comes complete with a strobe light and back-up alarm as standard equipment.
Both of these models are designed to operate in tight, confined spaces. They are ideal for hospitals, universities and smaller warehouses in metropolitan areas. If your business is planning on expanding its fleet this year, contact us to learn more about the benefits of these unique lifts!
