The BHS Automatic Transfer Carriage (ATC) is a powered forklift battery transfer cart designed to be mounted on an existing pallet truck. The ATC is available in a variety of models with many flexible options to satisfy all unique battery handling requirements.
Simply mount the ATC onto a spare pallet truck and connect the battery (12 volt and 24 volt DC power available). The ATC’s extractor arm is operated entirely by the pallet truck battery, removing the need for an auxiliary power source. Position the ATC against the forklift battery compartment; rubber bumpers allow close contact without damaging the lift truck’s finish.
Operators use easy-access, center-mounted controls to extend the extraction arm. Once it connects to the forklift battery (via magnetic, vacuum, or hook-and-chain attachment), the hydraulic-powered extraction arm gently pulls the battery over the ATC’s 10 compartment rollers. A steel battery containment bar keeps the battery in place during transit.
ATC Battery Transfer Carts for Electric Forklift Fleets of Any Size
The ATC battery transfer cart is ideal for operations with very few forklifts, park & charge users, and as a back-up option for Operator Aboard Battery Extractor Systems. In fact, any operation that runs electric forklifts will benefit from the quick, ergonomic change-outs powered by an ATC.
If a battery fails in the aisles, for instance, users can replace that battery where the truck is stalled. This is safer and quicker than towing a lift truck back to the battery room for change-out. Users can also change forklift batteries in cold storage aisles to avoid subjecting trucks to the stress of frequent temperature changes.
A wide range of features and options allow users to customize ATC transfer carts for their unique applications. Click the Features & Benefits tab to view these options.
