WTC
Manual industrial forklift battery changer with one forklift battery compartment and is mounted to your pallet truck.

The BHS Walkie Transfer Carriage (WTC) is a non-powered battery changer designed for smaller battery fleets. The WTC mounts to the user’s existing pallet truck to change batteries in side-extraction applications. The WTC comes in three models and offers a dependable and versatile battery changing system at an affordable cost. The BHS Walkie Transfer Carriage's heavy duty frame construction is built to handle today's demanding environments. Large 2.4" diameter rollers are standard on a WTC, as well as its hand wheel for positive control of the push/pull extractor arm. The WTC has poly-coated rollers to reduce corrosive build-up and extend product life.
