NSR12-20N2(I)(S) stand-in stackers – the smart alternative for stacking up to 7.0 metres, horizontal transport over long and short distances, and order picking.

Cat® stand-in stackers offer a different approach which will save in many ways on your total cost of operation (TCO) compared to platform pallet stacker trucks. First, they are more compact, so they manoeuvre and travel more quickly through narrow aisles and other tight spaces. There is no stopping to fold a ride-on platform up and down, or to fold down protective sidebars before lifting.

Next, they make much more efficient use of your valuable warehouse space. Aisles can be made narrower, and with lift heights of up to 7.0 metres your racking can go higher. What’s more, you can stack heavier weights at each height – especially if you choose the foldable side stabiliser option for extra residual capacity. The result is a far greater stock density than before.

A compact footprint is not the only thing that makes these stand-in stacker trucks faster than other electric pallet stackers. Their advanced drive, lifting, lowering, steering and stability systems make every task quicker and smoother. Operators have a better all-round view and feel confident about travelling, manoeuvring and handling more quickly, thanks to their enclosed and protected operator space and the truck’s automated speed and stability aids. Productivity is boosted.

Operator performance is also enhanced by comfortable and ergonomic design which gives better job satisfaction. Positionally adjustable controls minimise stress, strain and fatigue, while maximising precision and speeding up each process. There is a fully adjustable steering wheel allowing different driving positions depending on travel direction. The armrest, which is adjustable in height, includes a hand grip for relaxed driving, and controls for simultaneous drive and hydraulic functions. Further enhancing comfort and safety, the optical presence sensor allows fully flexible foot and work positioning for relaxed operation. A strong overhead guard with excellent visibility, especially when fitted with the optional transparent roof, protects operators from falling goods. The high-comfort operator compartment is vibration-free, quiet and very easy to enter and exit.

With all these advantages, your operators will be able to do their work in less time – so you will need less labour and fewer trucks to meet your targets. You can also use the multiple-role versatility of these stand-in stackers to reduce your fleet needs. For example, they offer similar lifting capabilities to many reach trucks but at a lower cost and in tighter spaces. They can also do the job of an order picker. >

There are many reasons why the stand-in stacker approach makes sense, but to gain maximum benefit from it you should choose trucks developed by the world-leading designers in this specialised field.

For that, look no further than the Cat NSR12-20N2(I)(S) stand-in stacker truck range.

  • Broad range of models, variants and specialised options gives class-leading adaptability to different applications, for optimum productivity, ergonomics and safety.
  • Advanced AC motor and control technology enables fast, smooth and precise driving, lifting and lowering.
  • Integrated functionality saves time by allowing simultaneous control of drive speed, mast/fork movements and side stabiliser deployment.
  • Side stabilisers (optional) increase residual capacity for high lifting.
  • Progressive electric power steering automatically adjusts sensitivity according to speed, for high precision in tight manoeuvres and high stability when travelling fast and straight.
  • Automatic cornering control reduces maximum travel speed according to steering angle, to ensure quick but safe, stable and confident turns.
  • Creep speed feature increases load capacity for lifts above 1.7 m by automatically limiting travel to 5 km/h when forks reach that height. (Speed-cut height varies in wide straddle models.
  • With Li-ion battery, performance is enhanced and fast opportunity charging is possible, via easily accessible connector, for continuous operation without battery changes.
  • High ground clearance avoids sticking on ramps and uneven floors.
  • Initial lift (I) models give additional ground clearance and may be used for double pallet handling – with one load on the support legs and one on the forks.
  • Wide straddle (S) models allow lowering of forks to the floor, between widely spaced support legs, for handling of closed-base pallets and other carriers without open fork spaces or pockets.
  • Wide straddle structure simplifies fitting and use of specialised attachments such as roll clamps, spikes and rotators, giving even greater application flexibility.
  • Wide straddle variant specifications include choice of standard (855 or 1055 mm) or customised straddle widths, and smaller or larger chassis/capacity, for optimum matching with applications.
  • Wide straddle legs have tandem wheels and a low-profile design, slightly angled downward toward their end point, for improved drive-in and ground clearance and better performance on gradients.
  • Fork shape is tapered on the underside as well as pointed at the tip, to avoid sticking, for easier and faster pallet entry and exit even while turning at the same time. (On wide straddle models, fork tips are slightly pointed and tapered.)
  • Extensive mast choice includes duplex and triplex versions with a range of standard and custom lift heights, to match applications perfectly.
  • Powerful and quiet hydraulic motor is smoothly governed by stepless, speed-regulated lifting and lowering control, for quick but safe and accurate fork positioning and movement.
  • Level assistance system option provides a quick and simple way for operators to choose between stopping at each pre-set height or bypassing it. (Not on 1.6 tonne wide straddle model.)
  • Laser fork height indicator option aids accuracy in placing forks at correct level. (Not on wide straddle models.)
  • Ergo forks trailing control option allows speed adjustment from a more convenient position - as well as clearer vision - for operators standing in the direction of travel with forks trailing.
  • 360-degree steering option allows truck to turn and move in opposite direction, without stopping, in one smooth manoeuvre – for substantial time gains, especially in complex layouts and highly repetitive handling cycles.

  • Enclosed operator position ensures all-round protection by heavy-duty chassis, integrated bumper, overhead guard pillars and roof.
  • Comfortable operator compartment minimises strain and tiredness with low step-in height, fully floating floor, outstanding levels of vibration damping, cushioned backrest, and plenty of space.
