With constant innovation for platform lifts and forklifts, one of the most reliable names in the business is offering their latest. Big Joe unveiled their J1 "JOEY" earlier this year much to the excitement of the forklift community. Combining the abilities of a platform lift with the power of some forklifts, the J1 "JOEY" is sure to make an impact for those businesses needing power and efficiency in one machine.

By creating an electric platform lift that runs off of battery charges, the steps towards environmental conservation are taken. By increasing efficiency and decreasing ongoing costs of your forklift such as maintenance and gas, it leaves the door open to more profit and lower overhead.

J1 "JOEY" Task Support Vehicle combines attributes of elevating work platforms, order pickers and tuggers in a compact and capable vehicle design.

Developed as an alternative to rolling ladders or other larger equipment, the Joey can support tasks from general overhead maintenance to order picking.

The Joey can elevate an operator up to 126” from the floor, turn around in as little as 72", and can be driven at height to move from task to task.  Travel is provided by a high efficiency AC drive motor that can be programmed through the onboard LCD dash, while power comes from a 224AH AGM maintenance free battery pack that supports opportunity charging from standard 120v outlets.
