The Speedy Picker is an efficient and ergonomic lifting tool for warehouses and distribution centers. It consists of a crane arm and a lifting tool that is connected to a compressor. These are installed onto the forklift truck that is driven by operator during the workday. This way, the lifting tool is always at hand. As the operator no longer needs to manually lift the loads, the risk of injury from lifting is minimized. With the Speedy Picker, work can be carried out faster, easier, and safer.

”If you lift with your body, you really don’t have much energy left after working. You go home, shower and fall asleep. But if you work with the Speedy Picker, you have energy afterwards to go to the gym, to go for a run and to have fun with your family,”

Adnan, Order Picker at a warehouse in Stockholm.

Ergonomic crane arm for forklift trucks that streamline warehouse work

Warehouse work and order picking is a repetitive job that needs to be fast-paced and streamlined. Often, it leads to awkward working positions and bad postures, which is a major risk factor for wear-and-tear injuries and general fatigue that may result in lower productivity. The Speedy Picker lifting solution can manage up to 120 lifts per hour, which allows you to maintain a productive and efficient operation, with fewer injuries and improved ergonomics. As the vacuum level in the lifting tool is continuous, it is always ready to lift.

The Speedy Picker maintains its stability even when the crane arm is open. So, you don’t need to waste time folding out support legs while using it. Continuous and efficient usage without time-consuming stops.

Speedy Picker’s standard lifting tool for boxes

Lifting tools for warehouses and distribution centers

The Speedy Picker can be equipped with a variety of lifting tools for lifting goods, and for loading and unloading forklift trucks. Read about the different models here:

  • Customized lifting tools

Depending on the loads (e.g., bags, sacks, buckets, or containers) the Speedy Picker can be equipped with a bespoke lifting accessory, such as a customized hook, or mechanical gripper with clamps, or a vacuum gripper for gripping odd angles. The possibilities are endless. Just contact our competent sales engineers and ask for a lifting solution customized for your needs.

  • Multi-gripper

If you need to have several different lifting tools for the various materials in your warehouse, we offer a tool with a twist-and-lock system that makes it possible to switch between different vacuum applications and even a hook. By having a multi-gripper connected to your crane, you can easily lift the different objects in different ways, but all with the same machine.

  • Standard lifting tool

The standard lifting tool for boxes starts automatically when placed firmly on the box. The operator can then lift and maneuver the box effortlessly. This lifting tool has been ergonomically designed for both left and right-handed operators, and has a one-button control panel. This button is used to release the load when it has been placed down. The tool’s unique tilting function allows the operator the versatility of choosing between picking up loads from the top or from the side. This makes it easy to pick up products from the top of a high stack, or to work in confined spaces and in low-built areas.

Flexible forklift crane arm

The agile and flexible crane arm is logically placed in the middle of the forklift on the truck. This means quicker pick-ups from both sides and behind the forklift truck. The crane is low-built for work in low spaces, which is common in warehouse aisles. When work is done, the operator simply places the lifting tool into one of the docking stations, folds the crane arm into “parking mode”, and drives safely to the next spot.

Forklift crane arm with different mountings

The Speedy Picker is available for permanent installation on a forklift, or as a separate unit consisting of a crane arm, a compressor and a lifting tool that is coupled to an existing truck. The separate unit (Speedy Picker Add-On) can be used with different models of forklift trucks. It can easily be coupled or decoupled form the forklift, freeing it for other tasks. This version of the Speedy Picker is an independent, mobile unit offering you the flexibility to scale your workflow up or down depending on seasonality and the daily needs of your workplace.

The different methods of mounting enable the Speedy Picker to be coupled onto most Class A forklifts, regardless of brand. We work in collaboration with you and your forklift supplier to develop a solution that best suits your specific type of forklift truck.

Resilient, powerful, and safe

The Speedy Picker is a cost-effective alternative that can work several shifts in an operation.

  • It is charged by the forklift’s own battery, so the operator does not have to spend time recharging yet another tool.
  • It only consumes energy when lifting (3-5 seconds), making it a resilient and energy effective lifting solution.
  • It is available with three different effects 1.3, 2.6 and 3.9Kw.
  • It only weighs 300 kilo, allowing for a higher payload before the truck´s maximum capacity is exceeded.

Prevent wear and tear injuries

A warehouse worker often lifts about 120 packages per hour. In total, this one person lifts approximately 15-16 tonnes of weight on average in an 8-hour workday. According to the Swedish Work Environment Authority’s binding regulations, an employer must provide suitable adjustments to the workplace to reduce or eliminate the risk of overloading employees (SWEA). This also includes providing tools and technical aids. Instead of overloading and physically wearing down employees with heavy lifting, the Speedy Picker can carry the load while the worker maintains speed and precision.

What is an order picker?

Lifts All’s order picker, Speedy Picker, is a lifting solution for mobile material handling at warehouses or distribution centers. It is a piece of warehouse equipment that is used for picking products, often from shelves to pallets. The Speedy Picker consists of a compressor and a crane arm connected to a lifting tool that goes on to your forklift. After the Speedy Picker is connected to the forklift, you can drive wherever you need to and still have the lifting equipment with you. Loading pallets and filing orders has never been easier!

What does a Speedy Picker order picker do?

The order picker is often utilized in distribution centers for picking boxes from pallets and storage shelves to trucks. Thanks to pneumatic technology, picking is almost weightless. Just grab the lifting tool, grip the goods, lift and load it onto your truck. When the truck is loaded, simply lock the crane arm and drive to the next pallet. When you are finished loading the pallet, you can just as easily use the Speedy Picker to unload it.

How to connect the Speedy Picker Add-On

The Speedy Picker Add-On is an attachment for forklifts and does not need to be installed. This means that you can use it within minutes after you receive it. Connecting the Speedy Picker Add-On is easy:

  • Drive the forks of your forklift truck into the Speedy Picker.
  • Connect the electric cable.
  • Push the Activate-button to lock the Add-On to the forklift. The green light confirms that the Add-On is locked.
  • Drive away and pick up your products.
  • To disconnect the forklift, repeat the same procedure in reverse order.
Bespoke lifting solution for warehouse trucks

Lifts All’s expertise lies in customizing lifting solutions. The Speedy Picker order picker is also made to measure. This means that it is compatible with almost any type of forklift truck and suits most warehouse environments. Depending on what industry you are in, and what you need to lift, we will create a bespoke lifting solution customized to your needs. We can also customize it for different handling requirements, so that you can pick more efficiently at your warehouse. Just contact our experienced sales engineers and they will find the best solution based on your operating conditions.

Speedy Picker features

The Speedy Picker solution consists of three parts, a compressor, a crane arm and a lifting tool. With a 2000 mm long crane arm, and a reach of 4000 mm in diameter, the Speedy Picker has the ability to access most shelf spaces. The height of the crane is adapted to fit under the shelves in your warehouse shelf system, to reach the packages that are the furthest away. When you no longer need the crane arm, simply fold it in, lock it into place and drive away. The crane arm takes up no space while driving the forklifts in the narrow aisles of the warehouse.

Speedy Picker is also equipped with a lifting tool that is customized for your product and workflow requirements. The tool can be used at different heights depending on how high or low you want to lift. It can be adjusted into a horizontal or vertical position to grip boxes or packages either from the side or the top. The lifting tool´s standard load capacity is 65 kilos, but can be tailored to your needs.

Quick order picking

Evolving industry with increased e-commerce has resulted in an increased demand for many warehouses. Operating the Speedy Picker is quick and requires little effort. The lifting tool is intuitively designed and easy to learn. It utilizes vacuum technology that automatically attaches the tool when it hits the load. Then, you can weightlessly lift and place the load within the reach of the crane arm. Operation is simple as the tool only has two buttons, both to release the load. The picking process only takes seconds, so that you can easily keep up the speed and precision.

Ergonomic warehouse equipment for increased productivity

The speed and quality of warehouse handling often depends on the truck operator´s working conditions. If the truck operator can work without strain, the handling is quicker, which increases work rate and order filing. Ergonomic instruments of production are a key factor in minimizing wear and tear injuries and thereby increasing productivity, in both manufacturing industries and distribution centers. Lifts All´ lifting tools utilize pneumatic technology to make the load almost weightless. When the order picking process is less tiring, the job goes quicker, which saves both time and money.

Safety should never be compromised while filing customer´s orders. Our lifting equipment and order picker attachments follow machine safety policies. In addition, the lifting tools are ergonomically designed to suit both left- and right-handed persons, and to lift both vertically and horizontally. With Speedy Picker you can fill orders both safely and efficiently, while caring for the operator´s ergonomics.

Safe operating

The Speedy Picker is designed with both functionality and safety in mind. It is equipped with safety sensors to ensure that the crane arm does not sway when you are driving the truck. When you park the lifting tool in its’ parking box, the automatic locking pin that keeps the crane arm folded is activated. To lock the crane arms, you simply fold them into position. Only when the crane arms are locked, and the lifting tool is parked correctly, is it possible to drive the truck on to the next working station.
