Slim Console

The slim designed console and narrow base support for the pivot arm, reduce the overall vehicle length. More importantly they enhance the operators reach & pick capability by minimizing the reach distance to the load.

  • Slim Line Console
  • Minimum Reach to Pallet
  • Moveable Console

Split Controls

In some cases long or wide loads may make it impossible to reach cases from inside the operators compartment. While safety is a prime concern, we incorporate a gated solution which only grants access to the load when the vehicle is completely stopped. Electronically interlocked gates lock out travel and all hydraulic functions when open.

  • split console controls
  • interlocking gates


  • Split Control Option
  • Robust Construction

Compartment Size

the EK Series vehicles are designed around the load and aisle environment. Cab sizes generally reflect the overall load insertion length:

  • Pictured the EK 20 built to handle a 90" deep load insertion
  • The Narrow frame EK demonstrates the built to suit concept.
  • Deep operator compartments for special purposes.

Chassis and cabin widths are determined for the best possible space and operational utilization.

  • Wide Construction
  • Narrow Construction
  • Robust Construction

Enclosed Cab

Freezer or harsh environment vehicles are available with fully enclosed cabins the designs are suited to the application:

  • Heated or AC controlled cabs are available for controlled operator environments
  • Freezer Options include heated windows to prevent moisture & condensation buildup when travelling in and out of cold store environments.

Cabin Options

The operators' work environment should not be overlooked :
