The Raymond Corporation, with the launch of its new 8000 Series pallet trucks, delivers best-in-class durability and efficient, productive pallet trucks.

Material-handling workhorses, the 8000 Series trucks stand up to tough applications while maximizing productivity and contributing to more sustainable operations. In fact, third-party testing by the United States Auto Club verified that Raymond pallet trucks are up to 33% more energy-efficient and 6% more productive than those offered by competitors.

“The Raymond 8000 Series was built with one thing in mind: the customer,” said Sue Rice, pallet trucks and stackers product manager for Raymond. “This line of pallet trucks was intelligently designed to exceed the performance expectations of our customers—from durability and productivity to ease of maintenance and low cost of ownership. At Raymond, we call this Eco-Performance: a commitment to continuously improve to help customers maximize productivity and efficiency, minimize cost of ownership, and operate more sustainably.”

These new pallet trucks offer features to move more product in less time. The differences begin with advanced engineering, which helps achieve peak efficiencies through use of industry-leading materials and components, and fine-tuned designs that maximize performance. Because Raymond lift trucks are built using superior fabrication, assembly, and quality-control processes, the end result is a stronger, more efficient, and more productive pallet truck.

Created with durability in mind, the 8000 Series pallet trucks feature increases in material strength that enable them to meet heavy-duty applications. Components are reinforced for reduced wear, delivering more uptime and lower costs. Additionally, all components used in the 8000 Series are backed by an undercarriage warranty—Raymond Asset Protection—and the firm’s five-year structural and Standard+ warranty with three-year or 6,000-hour coverage of undercarriage components.

Pallet trucks in the 8000 Series provide user-friendly features such as roomy operator compartments with padding and multiple lean points, accessory bars with lights and fans, large storage totes, and additional caster options. The trucks also offer PowerSteer, which helps operators reduce steering efforts by up to 90% and provides speed-sensitive steering for optimized productivity and smooth control at all speeds.
