When it comes to working indoors, walkie stackers and other electric forklifts are definitely safer. Petrol and diesel forklifts emit endless toxic fumes which can impact worker health if there isn’t sufficient airflow or automated extraction to remove them quickly.
Electric forklifts run solely on battery power and are therefore much better for the environment and worker wellbeing.
Prices vary as much as walkie stacker options. At the most basic end, $3,000 will be more than enough. At the top end, expect to pay around $16,000. A perfectly decent and versatile mid-range walkie stacker will cost less than $6,000.
Most walkie stacker maintenance should be undertaken by a trained technician during scheduled service checks. These services will check lights, wiring, brakes, acceleration, steering, lubrication, battery, terminals, hydraulics, hoses and fittings, as well as overall structural soundness.
