About the Winch Stacker Trucks WS Series


The WS series winch stacker trucks use a manual winch to lift the forks and load rather than hydraulics. The winch operates by rotating the handle clockwise which will wind the wire rope to raise the forks. Lowering the forks works the opposite way, rotate the lever in the opposite direction ( to let out the wire rope and lower the forks.

The adjustable width forks are a big benefit to this pallet stacker as they can be adjusted to suit a range of pallet sizes, although they can only be used with open bottom type pallets.


WS25 and WS50 Winch Pallet Stacker Specifics


There are 2 models in the WS series of stacker trucks. Both are the same overall physical size and have a maximum fork height of 1560mm giving a lifting height of around 1.5 metres.

The forks can be adjusted between 160mm and 690mm giving you great adjustability and make them useable for many different sized loads.

The length of the forks differs between the two models. The WS25 has 800mm forks whilst the WS50 has 1000mm forks. The lifting height per stroke or winch turn also differs with the former being 40mm per stroke and the latter 22mm per stroke. The maximum lifting capacities are 250kg and 500kg respectively.


The WS winch pallet stacker trucks are made from heavy duty steel with a 'C' section steel mast with large vertical handles to pull and steer the truck. The lower legs incorporate 4 wheels, two smaller guide wheels to the front and two larger swivel castors to the rear for steering, these are lockable for secure parking.


Other Pallet Handling Equipment


Handling pallets requires specific equipment in order to lift and move them around. Forklift trucks often spring to mind as a solution but these are costly and take up lots of space. At Lifting Gear Direct we have a number of more affordable solutions to choose from. On our website you will find a good range of traditional pallet trucks which are great for everyday transportation of loads on pallets. We also have a range of pallet trucks with scales so you can determine the weight of the load at the same time. These, however can only lift the pallet just shy of the ground which is sometimes not as high as you need. A pallet stacker is a variation of a pallet truck but with a tall mast in order to lift the forks much higher making them ideal for vehicle loading and warehouse tasks.
