BUY VERTICAL ORDER PICKERS / WORK ASSIST VEHICLE
With the growing need of work assist vehicles and vertical order picker the question can be raised: What is the difference?
Work assist vehicles have their application in occasional order picking, maintenance work, inventory work and the usage in shops.
In retail stores, cash&carry as well as DIY markets, shelves need to be replenished regularly to ensure the best shopping experience for the customer. In the past this job was done with either ladders, a dangerous and ineffective solution, or with reach trucks with goods on pallets and blocked aisles. Similar truck requirements are seen for maintenance & inventory work, where a man-up truck with small turning cycle and simple handling is needed. EP developed the JX0 entry level order picker to match these requirements.
Buying vertical order pickers comes in handy when the main job is order picking at increased requirements for productivity. In the past most order picking jobs were carried out on ground level to increase the productivity, while stock was replenished to the bottom layer with reach & fork trucks. In recent years, driven by the E-Commerce industries picks per order get smaller and the need to collect different products from different levels has increased. To maximise flexibility for the driver and increase productivity, EP has developed the JX1, a professional order picker with a 20% higher pickrate per hour and a picking height of up to 6.5m.
WHY BUY VERTICAL ORDER PICKERS FROM EP?
Now, eCommerce can function at a sky-high level. Where once a storeroom was measured by its square footage, it can now be measured by its height. Warehouses and shop storerooms can operate with more complexity than ever before, and with our collection of fine order pickers for sale, the sky is quite literally the limit.
If you happen to be well-versed in order picker varieties, then we guarantee you will find something amongst our lucrative catalogue of machines. However, if you are new to the world of order pickers, then let us guide you through the various order pickers we have available for sale.
We will begin with the JX2. Designed for medium lifts, the JX2 would make a reliable and safe addition to any warehouse, maintenance centre or shop floor. With a total lift height of 3620mm, this model is ideal to maximise order picking output without jeopardising the safety of the worker.
Our next model, the JX1, has a stable mast for easy stability as well as a higher elevation of 4880mm. With this higher reach, storage space can be safely maximised. The key difference with the JX1, as opposed to the JX2, is the additional option of a Gel (AGM) battery to replace the JX2’s Lead-acid battery. This change requires less maintenance, shorter charge times and higher efficiency for the busy storeroom.
Finally, the JX0 is our latest generation machine. New in 2017, this order picker is a response to new storage room layouts, being ideal for navigating far narrower alleys in tighter warehouses. This model is primarily used for smaller order pick-ups in collection centres but has multiple safety sensors built into its interface for maximum protection in all inventory work. Like our other models, the JX0 features easy to use hydraulic controls and ergonomic power steering from its AC drive motor. With the option of the Gel (AGM) battery or the advanced Li-Ion battery, the JXO is an efficient new model.
