Press Release October 3rd 2012 Uplifting new design from OMG
Aiming to reinforce its place as an innovative market leader in warehouse handling equipment, OMG has released a reimagining of its classic pedestrian-controlled pallet stackers. The all-new 716 K ac and 720 K ac have now been injected with several shots of new technology, having been adapted and re-launched to suit the constantly evolving industry.

The brand new mast design has improved visibility, faster lift and lower speeds, while a brand new mono bloc chassis has been developed to offer outstanding stability. Meanwhile, the face of the forks itself has shrunk in length to improve manoeuvrability and permit use even in narrow spaces. Simultaneously compact (the unit is only 87cm wide) and extremely strong, the OMG 716 K AC and 720 K AC are perfect for use in more confined environments.
Size and strength aside, the operation of this machine is incredibly precise and intricate considering the loads it is required to manage. A mini-joystick and proportional push-buttons located on the tiller arm permit precise and sensitive load lifting and lowering and the ergonomics have been brought right up to date.
Chris Bunn, National Sales Manager for OMG importer Ambassador Lift Trucks says: ‘The usability and design of these machines is second to none, OMG have really pulled out all the stops to incorporate both improved performance and lower maintenance; it’s a great piece of warehousing equipment.’
