Key product features

Fully compliant lift system

Panel on the ATEX stacker truck allows operators to lift and tilt the forks.

Fully compliant lift system

To operate the unit simply plug in an airline to enable the powered functions; the buttons on the rear panel are used to lift, lower and tilt the load. The unit makes use of mandatory safety features such as an emergency stop button and hydraulic blocking valves that add extra security to the lift system. If the airline is disconnected for any reason, the forks will remain locked in place and the load will remain safe and secure.

ATEX-certified for gas and dust zones 1, 2, 21 and 22

ATEX Tilting Stacker Truck suitable for zoned areas holds a vessel.

ATEX-certified for gas and dust zones 1, 2, 21 and 22

This pneumatic-hydraulic stacker is ATEX certified for use in Zone 1, 2, 21 and 22 environments. Each of our ATEX stacker trucks is designed to ensure electrical continuity, a path to ground is always present. With each ATEX model, we supply a manufacturer’s EU Declaration of Conformity which states compliance with the ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU.

Tilting stainless steel clad forks

Tilting stainless steel clad forks

This product was developed due to demand from manufacturers who needed to fully empty their process vessels to avoid wastage and as well as dangerous manual handling practices. When a vessel is 90% empty, the 10% remaining inside is very difficult to remove. Using this machine, the final 10% of the material can be removed through the drain port saving both time and money. 


To reduce the risk of spark generation we fit our ATEX stacker trucks with stainless steel clad forks; should the forks contact the ground the chance of a spark is drastically reduced. Manufactured in the UK, the stainless cladding is of an extremely high standard and is very strong and robust.

Hot-rolled lifting channels

Hot-rolled lifting channels

To keep operators safe and the unit stable, we use hot-rolled steel channels in the manufacture of our stacker trucks. These channels provide a sturdy basis for your pallet lifting operations and ensure minimal deflection of the chassis when loaded.


Ackermann-style rear-wheel steering provides maximum directional control when tipping drums into your process. Wheels are made of heavy-duty nylon which is very hard, reducing rolling resistance considerably. Park brakes are fitted to all models for static positioning and safety. We can provide you with custom leg configurations should you need them including wider legs or narrower legs.

Optional features

Electric-hydraulic lift

For non-ATEX applications we adapt an STP07 (pneumatic unit) into an STE07 (electric unit). On-board batteries then power the hydraulic lift function.

Power-drive system

When moving goods over long distances we suggest adding power drive. Our power-drive tiller steering offers effortless control, with battery and pneumatic options.

Load cell weighing system

We can provide these units with an ATEX weigh scale system. Measure accurately the weight of vessels and IBCs using this model.

Variable leg dimensions

When machinery integration is critical we will modify leg dimensions to suit your facility.

Sale or return

In the UK we can supply certain equipment on a sale-or-return basis, meaning you can use a unit on-site for seven days with no obligation to buy it once the trial period is up. Find out more here.
