Walkie Transfer Carriages
The BHS Walkie Transfer Carriage (WTC) is a non-powered battery changer designed for smaller battery fleets. The WTC mounts to the user’s existing pallet truck to change batteries in side-extraction applications.
The WTC comes in three models and offers a dependable and versatile battery changing system at an affordable cost. Its simple design makes maintenance easy, and its heavy-duty construction provides rugged durability in harsh warehouse conditions.
The Walkie Transfer Carriage uses hook-and-chain extraction and comes standard with a hand wheel for positive control of the extractor arm. The large, poly-sleeved and spark-proof rollers on the WTC-24 reduce corrosive build-up and increase product life.
With over a dozen optional features, warehouse managers can customize the Walkie Transfer Carriage to fit perfectly with their lift truck fleet. Drop-in rollers, three-way fork pockets, and permanent mounting are just a few of the many available add-ons.
Boost productivity by customizing a Walkie Transfer Carriage and reducing your change-out times. Contact our sales team at 1.800.BHS.9500 to find out more about Battery Carts and Carriages or to find a local dealer.
