The ETV Q series reach truck has five available travel programs that include 360° steering, minimum turning radius and rapid direction change. With intuitive handling and ergonomically-arranged displays, the moving mast reach truck provides ideal working conditions for high performance and ease of operation.
The second nominee, the EKS 208, a mid- to high-level order picker, offers industry-leading order picking performance in elevated-rack and narrow aisle warehouse applications. The EKS models have set new standards in flexibility, energy efficiency and ergonomics. The spacious operator compartment provides ideal working conditions for high-performance and ease of operation, including a two-piece console for the operator that features a large, informative display.
Product of the Year nominees will be featured in the November issue of Plant Engineering, and readers will then vote for their top product selection in each category. Based on the results, products receiving a gold, silver or bronze medal will be honored at a special ceremony in Chicago in March 2012.
