In complex heavy lifting environments organisations adhere to best practice by insisting on their operations being safe as well as efficient. SANY makes no compromises, which is why the specification of its reachstackers includes a host of topline safety features as standard.
For maximum visibility at all times, here are some of the key safety features on SANY reachstackers:
- A rear-view camera, which is automatically activated when the operator engages reverse gear. The display in the control panel provides an unrestricted view ensuring safe driving in all directions – a top priority in busy environments and especially for applications where space is at a premium. Rear parking sensors can also be specified.
- A lighting system that promotes visibility. As well as brake/indicators and reversing lights plus a rotating amber beacon, SANY reachstackers feature 18 LED lights designed to ensure clear visibility whatever the environment, both day and night.
- A camera system installed around the perimeter of the reachstacker to further enhance precision and safety. From an additional control panel display, the operator has a clear, 360 degree view of the surrounding environment.
- Optional piggyback cameras. Located on each side of the piggyback, these extra cameras provide an unparalleled view of this most important function supporting both equipment productivity and safety.
Redundant anti-tipping facility
When the operating load moment of weight and distance reaches 100%, the electrical system on SANY reachstackers will lock the boom and spreader and trigger audible and visual alarms. Meanwhile, a hook located below the counterweight will lock the axle adding extra weight to stabilise the machine. Travel speed is also restricted, helping to minimise the risk of tipping due to excessive speed.
Automatic parking brake
SANY has developed a parking brake system that is automatically activated if the operator stands up while the reachstacker is in motion. An auxiliary manual pump releases the brake for maintenance purposes.
SANY reachstackers are equipped with a fully redundant CAN BUS system for failsafe control. The joystick is incorporated within the system, which is supplied with two control units to ensure the equipment can be operated in the event of a system failure.
A 2-litre fire extinguisher is supplied as standard with all SANY reachstackers. An automatic fire suppression system for the engine compartment is also available.
