In contrast to the straddle stackers profiled above, the counterbalanced stacker forgoes stabilizing straddle legs in favor of a heavy counterweight. This design eliminates the need for wider shelving and uniform pallet sizes, but also eliminates the need for a crossbar setup beneath the shelving to accommodate the straddles while picking up loads. Similar to the forkover design, the counterbalanced stacker is widely used in warehousing applications where loads are stacked side-by-side to increase storage density.
Stärke LiftMaxx 24v-AC Electric Counterbalanced Walkie Stacker is designed to provide the versatility of a traditional counterbalanced forklift with the design benefits of a walkie straddle stacker. Here, a counterbalanced weight replaces the stabilizing straddles found on a traditional pallet stacker to eliminate the need for wider shelving or crossbars in narrow aisle applications, thus increasing potential storage capacity.
