Versatility is a key aim of the EXU-H low lift truck. It is designed to transport goods horizontally over short and medium distances and to load or unload lorries. It can also be used as a mobile working platform for loads up to 800kg, with the addition of order picking lift. Still sees the truck as ideal, for example, to replenish racks in supermarkets or when changing the tools of industrial machines.
The manufacturer has also prized ergonomics in the design with the truck supporting the operator and working against backache.
The EXU-H also features an auto lift function, which makes sure the load is always at a comfortable and ergonomic lift height. A sensor measures the height of the load. The fork is automatically lifted or lowered depending on the height of the load on the pallet. The operator does not need to bend far down to pick up load or lift loads unnecessarily. In addition, this feature increases the turnover performance, because the lift height does not need to be adjusted manually.
All storage compartments can be adapted to the requirements of the operator. There is a bottle holder or a holder for a mobile phone. A pen holder and a paper clip are also integrated. An additional bar to mount accessories and a fleet manager access control can also be ordered.
In terms of maneuverability, Still has worked on the tiller to increase effectiveness. The tiller of the EXU-H is equipped with Optispeed functions. This means the travelling speed of the truck is automatically adjusted to the angle of the tiller. This allows slow driving in narrow spaces with the tiller nearly upright to make manoeuvring very easy and fast.
If the operator pulls the tiller towards himself, the travelling speed increases proportionally up to 6 km/h. If the tiller is horizontal or vertical the EXU-H stops immediately in order not to endanger the operator. To cover longer distances the EXU-H is also available with a stand-on platform. The low height of the forks - 85 mm (before 91 mm) makes it easy to enter pallets crosswise.
Two features of the EXU-H ensure a large floor clearance. The initial lift has been increased by 34mm to 159mm but now it also lifts the battery tray. The mast was integrated in the chassis moving the weight further backwards. This increases the pressure on the drive wheel which in turn improves the ability of the truck to climb up ramps. By standard the EXU-H is equipped with an automatic ramp stop.
The truck uses a 1.2kW drive motor with AC technology and two driving modes - Eco or Boost, with the maintenance interval doubled from 500 to 1000 hours of operation. An optional version for operation in cold stores is also available.
