All About Stacker Truck Models

Summary
– Stacker models
– The manual stacker
– The electric stacker
– The platform stacker

The stacker is the simplest handling tool capable of lifting loads to stack them (stacking).
The stacker is maneuverable and space-saving and is also capable of transporting heavy loads over short distances.

Stacker models

The stacker is a manual or electric handling and lifting device for palletized packages.
It allows an important lifting of the load thanks to a hydraulic cylinder or a manual winch.
Depending on the frequency of handling to be carried out and the distance to be covered, three models of stacker are available:
– the manual stacker,
– the electric stacker,
– the platform stacker.
