AC powered Big Joe PDS-20 and PDS-25 lift trucks feature heavy duty I-beam mast construction and enhanced ergonomics. A creep-speed function allows for precise handling and enables the walk-behind trucks to navigate well in tight areas. Powered by either four maintenance-free, 6-volt gel batteries or an industrial 12-85-7 battery, the trucks offer a 40% longer duty cycle than the supplier’s previous model. The trucks lift loads up to 130 inches high. Big Lift, 630-916-2600, www.bigjoeforklifts.com.
