JLG upgrades stock picker
By Lindsey Anderson09 November 2017
JLG Industries, Inc., has launched its upgraded 10MSP mobile stock picker.
With an increase in the maximum stowed drive speed from 3.5 to 5 miles per hour and new simultaneous drive and lift capabilities, the 10MSP enables operators to navigate facilities quickly, driving greater efficiency over the course of the work day.
“Quicker drive speed and multi-function operation are necessities in today’s competitive material handling and industrial warehouse environments,” said Aaron Haynes, product marketing manager for vertical and low-level access products at JLG Industries, Inc. “Add the machine’s ability to work in environments with ambient air temperatures ranging from 0°F (-18°C) to 104°F (40°C), and the versatile 10MSP becomes an industry-leading stock picker choice for use in cold storage, as well as warmer weather environments.”
The simultaneous lift and drive feature requires both hands to be on the controls to create greater operator efficiency, and allows for closer positioning to work areas, which should reduce risk and operator strain, while improving productivity.
The 10MSP further enhances productivity through its higher platform height and up to 850 pounds of total vehicle capacity, allowing users to move more material in fewer trips. Uptime is increased thanks to standard maintenance-free 210 Amp-Hr AGM batteries and a lubrication-free mast and mast guide system.
Improved operator safety results from the unit’s self-closing saloon gates with operational interlocks that prevent operation when the gates are open. A standard lanyard attachment point allows operators to tie off at height, while a rigid mast reduces sway at height. In addition, an optional rubber floor mat offers foot and back relief for operator comfort during long shifts.
Other options, like an electrically powered material tray, object sensing pad, remote manual descent, aisle guide rollers, rug and bicycle carriers, scanner pocket, and cargo strap, are also available.
The 10MSP includes these additional features: Counter-rotational steering, delivering a tight turning radius to help operators navigate the unit in confined spaces; Standard frame-mounted bumpers to protect the operator from the surrounding area; Standard frame-mounted LED beacons in the front and rear to alert nearby workers of the machine’s presence; and intuitive and easy-to-access ground controls.
“All of the features on the newly enhanced 10MSP allow operators to do more—carry more, reach higher, move faster and work longer,” said Haynes. “The results are improved performance, reduced downtime, and increased productivity.”
