Summary

All walkie stackers work with a walkie drive which is normally situated at the front of the truck, this consists of two treadles on either side which you walk on to lift and move. They are really nice to stand on as they have a neat bounce effect due to them being pneumatically sprung, making it easy for anyone to walk about on them.

The best walkie stackers should also have a full pneumatic tire setup because a tricycle-type tire can make life very difficult when maneuvering in tight spaces or going over kerbstones etc.

What is a walkie stacker forklift?

A walkie stacker forklift is a powered industrial truck that utilizes a walking mechanism to move horizontally. It can be transitional but also come with a platform. The first and original walker stacker industrial truck was invented by Big Joe and has been in production since 1951.

Uses of Walkie stacker forklifts

Walkie stacker forklifts are used for lifting and transporting goods that may not have been safe to lift on a traditional forklift. With the walkie stacker, it is possible to lift items such as steel beams and other heavy materials that would be impossible to lift with a forklift.

It can also be used to move through tight spaces because the walkie stacker forklift walks and steers like a person rather than having front wheels or rear wheels. For instance, if you needed to get your forklift down an aisle that was too narrow for your truck's body, you could drive the unit in one direction and then reverse back, allowing you access. Some other advantages of owning a walkie stacker forklift include:

Advantages over Normal Forklifts

  • Walkie stacker forklifts are more stable than standard forklifts.

  • They can walk and reach much higher places than traditional forklifts.
  • It can walk over any terrain such as gravel, mud, grass, tarmac, etc. This eliminates the need for additional attachments, which are often needed with standard forklift trucks.

  • They can also be used on rough ground because they are very flexible (can turn at sharp angles) due to their walking mechanism.
