Such vehicles are very versatile and are used for a wide range of industrial purposes.
Operators stay inside the vehicle whilst using the hook to pick up or drop off items, so steadiness is called for during operation. Additionally, depending on the item being moved the driver’s rear visibility, via mirrors, can be compromised more than usual.
The MAX-SAFE Reverse Watch Hook-Lift Option overcomes unwarranted brake applications whilst reversing for loading or unloading purposes.
HOW THE MAX-SAFE REVERSE WATCH HOOK-LIFT OPTION WORKS
With the Hook-Lift in the HOME/STOWED position and the vehicle in reverse, the MAX-SAFE Reverse Watch functions as designed, triggering a brake application if an obstacle is detected in the Danger Zone.
However, when the Hook-Lift is engaged and moved from the HOME/STOWED position, the braking function of the MAX-SAFE Reverse Watch is disabled, allowing the driver to reverse without the brakes being automatically applied.
The radar and in-cab display remain ACTIVE, providing audible and visual warnings of obstacles in the Detection Zone at the rear of the vehicle, helping to maintain a high level of personnel and property protection.
The MAX-SAFE Reverse Watch Hook-Lift Option can be installed across your entire vehicle fleet, or retro-fitted to an individual vehicle.
