MTC Walk-A-Puller: Battery Changer

The MTC Walk-A-Puller (WBP) is a portable battery changer that is ideal for small fleets that require 20 to 40 battery changes per day. Walk-A-Puller accommodates fleets with a variety of compartment sizes up to 27 inches. Examples include low profile AGV batteries to high capacity turret trucks and counter balance trucks.

The Walk-A-Puller combines its own power and drive unit, carriage assembly and attachment system to give you a portable, but complete, heavy-duty battery handler. The unit's ease of operation allows qualified forklift operators to safely and easily change their own forklift batteries.

The adjustable extraction arm allows easy access to batteries over wide outriggers. The retracted reach of the extraction arm is 6.75" and it is adjustable in 1" increments up to a maximum reach of 11.75".

Forklifts that require conversion to allow for side extraction, slide strips and roller systems are available from SBS. We also offer a magnetic extraction option.
