Due to their rising cab, these multidirectional order picking trucks are suited for the order picking of individual aluminum profiles and pipes directly from the racking. In the 1-man version, the standup cab is positioned centrally in front of the mast, while in the 2-man version the cabs are configured next to the lift mast.


Picking platform in aluminum handling
