The Vestil EPT-2048-45-RP Steel Pallet Jack has an easy and quick operation. The unit raises and lowers loads with a push of a button. It can maneuver loads in warehouses and trailers. The reinforced welded forks have adjustable tie-rods that provide long service. The high-torque DC drive and lift motors handle heavy-duty jobs. Unit includes integral battery charger, battery level gauge, and emergency battery disconnect. The truck rolls smoothly on poly-on-steel, steer and load wheels. Ergonomic handle features easy to operate throttle with infinite adjustment of forward and reverse speeds, lift/lower controls, proprietary safety-enhancing emergency reverse function, and horn. When the Proprietary Safety-enhancing Emergency Reverse function is actuated, the emergency reverse belly switch instantly reverses direction and moves the unit forward (away from the operator) until the switch is released or after 1.5 seconds have elapsed. The built-in safety circuit will automatically disable the entire unit if the emergency reverse belly switch is activated for more than 1.5 seconds after which the unit must be re-set to return to normal operating conditions. This state-of-the-art safety device provides a high degree of operator protection. Includes an electromagnetic disc brake with automatic dead-man feature that activates when the user releases the handle. Also includes a stand-on platform, which flips up when not in use.
