Accelerate Pallet Handling


UniCarriers has added a new feature to the reach trucks in its ergonomic U-TERGO series with Mast Tilt Control (MTC). This control system for stabilizing the mast now forms part of the standard equipment for all high lifting models featuring mast tilt. The function is optionally available for reach trucks with lower lift heights and can also be retrofitted in existing vehicles. With MTC, the mast stabilizes 80% faster, thus allowing stocking and retrieving at higher speeds when reach trucks work at great heights. Users achieve shorter cycle times and greater convenience for goods handling. 


A reach truck mast is exposed to significant forces while stacking and retrieving pallets. Even if the mast design is strong and robust, extended greatly, it will inevitably sway. This means drivers need to wait when stocking or retrieving pallets since the mast needs to stabilize first. UniCarriers now minimizes waiting times with its new Mast Tilt Control (MTC) system, ensuring faster pallet handling. The automatic damping function absorbs unwanted mast movements and ensures 80 percent faster mast stabilization. The completely maintenance-free MTC system is not only efficient but also highly ergonomic. Thanks to reduced vibrations, the driver has more control and greater safety when operating stocking and retrieval processes at great lift heights.


The MTC brings maximum benefit when combined with the S3 – Soft Motion System, which is featured as standard in all models in the UniCarriers TERGO line since 2017. S3 automatically optimizes the speed of the hydraulic functions such as mast reach and mast tilt as well as side shift function in relation to the actual lift height and mast configuration. The system also contains an optimized reach damping function and precise speed control for very low speeds, ensuring it is very pleasant and easy to control. As a result, the combined use of MTC and S3 reduces pallet placement in storage and retrieval time by 12%.
