Raymond fine-tunes lift truck line

Raymond’s new Model 4100 and 4200 stand-up counterbalanced lift trucks can manipulate a 48-in (1220-mm) load in aisles as narrow as 66 in (1680 mm).

Dock and dock-to-stock applications will benefit from Raymond’s newly introduced stand-up counterbalanced lift trucks. Model 4200 is designed for use in warehouse systems and other high-productivity applications, with load capacities from 3000 to 5000 lb (1360 to 2270 kg). Model 4100 is designed for use in dock applications and features a load capacity of 3000 or 3500 lb (1400 or 1590 kg). 

Both models feature a three-wheel design that provides a small turning radius—as little as 55.5 in (1410 mm) for the 4100 and 57.8 in (1470 mm) for the 4200. They are capable of right-angle stacking within a small space and can manipulate a 48-in (1220-mm) load in aisles as narrow as 66 in (1680 mm).

Raymond’s ACR (accelerated side reach) system, which incorporates two ac drive motors, is included on both models. According to the company, the ACR system provides faster, smoother operation, more run time per battery charge, and lower maintenance costs compared with dc motors. Model 4200 also has an ac lift motor.

Quick-disconnect couplings provide for quicker switching between attachments. The couplings use anti-drip, no-leak valves that help to avoid hydraulic fluid spills.

A single-axis multifunction control handle includes Raymond’s four-way switch for sideshifting the forks and tilting the mast. The switch and featherable attachment control buttons allow the operator to fine-tune the movement of all hydraulic functions for smooth load handling and precise control of attachments.

Ergonomic features include an intuitive control handle designed to reduce hand and arm stress, a spacious operator compartment with a padded backrest, and an open-view mast. A heated floor cushion, padded and heated control handle, and thermostatic controls are available for cold operating environments.
