Models Affected: All BE-SL, DS & TS machines
All current Operator Aboard Battery Extractor (BE) models utilize an inward swinging operator gate as opposed to the previous drop gate style. The updated swing gate utilizes a roller switch in lieu of the push button switch to prevent machine operation without the gate being in the closed position. The swing gate also features a spring hinge and self-engaging latch, which ensures the gate closes once the operator has boarded the machine, and remains closed during travel and extractor operation.
BHS offers a retro fit kit to update older BE units to a swinging gate. The kit replaces the existing drop gate, though the existing push button switch remains utilized.
