Compact Pedestrian Stacker Truck

Versatile and compact

The SPL and SPD compact pedestrian pallet stacker truck allows the operator to walk with the vehicles. The SPL is a single pedestrian stacker truck, enabling the operator to lift and move one pallet, whilst the SPD is a double pedestrian stacker truck, able to lift two pallets at the same time. 

Both the SPL and SPD have the same features – a maximum capacity of 1,250 KG, a maximum lift height of 2,090 MM, a load centre of 600 MM, and a width of 660 MM. However, the SPD has a lift capacity of up to 1,600 KG when utilising both sets of forks (a maximum of 800 KG on each fork) and offers an initial lift of 120 MM.

Frequently Asked Questions

Stacker truck FAQs

What is a stacker truck?

A stacker truck is a vehicle that can lift pallets to heights up to 6 metres. The primary goal of stacker trucks is to safely and efficiently place or move pallets or goods on/from a rack shelf or lorry. The lifting can be carried out manually or, as with an electric-powered stacker, via an electric hydraulic pump or with the aid of an electric motor.

Why is it called a stacker truck?

Stacker trucks are similar to powered pallet trucks, except that they have a mast which allows them to move pallets and goods vertically, up to heights of seven metres. As well as moving pallets and goods, stacker trucks are able to stack them at great heights.

Do you need a licence to drive a stacker truck?

Whilst you don’t necessarily need a licence to drive a forklift truck, it’s recommended that you receive adequate training. Many guidance officials, like the HSC Approved Code of Practice and Guidance, note that people aged 16 or over can start driving a forklift truck. However, this is at the discretion of the employer and may differ depending on where you operate around the world. You will also need to meet the standard fitness requirements for driving any forklift truck. At TCM, we work with a trusted dealer network that offers exceptional driver training.

Where can I buy a stacker truck?

At TCM, we offer a range of different buying options for our extensive stacker truck range. Our leases are tailored to you – from hire purchase to contract hire to an operating lease. Get in touch with us here if you’re interested in investing with us, or click here to get in touch with your local TCM dealer.

Where can I get spare parts for a stacker truck?

The commonality of parts across our electric forklift truck ranges makes servicing and maintenance a breeze, with replacement parts readily available and easy to obtain through our dealer network, you can ensure maximum uptime and enhanced productivity.

What power source should I use to power my stacker truck?

You can use lead-acid batteries or lithium-ion batteries. These electric power sources not only help the wider environment, but they are significantly more efficient, healthier for your operators to work with, and work to reduce your TCO.

The stacker truck incorporates a 4-point concept (or system) truck chassis, featuring twin load wheels in each straddle leg (wheel arm). The drive unit/wheel is positioned off-centre to one corner, while a fixed castor wheel is situated in the opposite corner of the machine house/chassis. This design choice ensures exceptional durability, reliability, and a track record of success. It offers the ideal combination of stability and traction needed for demanding high-speed stacking tasks.

Efficiency in material handling operations relies heavily on speed, as it enables operators to maintain optimal productivity while upholding safety standards. With the SRD range, you benefit from a rocker switch located on the ergonomic tiller head, empowering you to control speed effortlessly. Additionally, the SRD range incorporates a regulated lift motor and a proportional valve, synergistically combining these elements to deliver seamless, secure, and accurate lifting, lowering, and handling operations.


At TCM, safety is key. We understand the importance of maximising productivity and reducing TCO, but it’s not possible to achieve these two material handling musts whilst compromising the safety of your operators or your goods. That’s why we’ve fitted these stacker trucks with rear stability caster wheels that are equipped with integrated shock absorption and variable damping that will automatically adjust depending on driving conditions, maximising truck stability.


In this article, we discuss the key features and benefits of the range of SRD ride-on double pallet stacker trucks. Read here to learn about even more safety features, enhanced operator comfort, and unparalleled efficiency.


Stand-In Stacker Truck

It’s common knowledge that operator vision and responsiveness are key elements of warehouse operations. Powered by efficient Li-Ion battery technology, the SRO allows for precise control when manoeuvring at low speed, excellent stability, and enables the operator to clearly see the forks through the mast and carriage which enables quicker handling speed.

Safety-related features of the SRO

Overhead guard pillars of two optional heights: 150 mm or 160 mm

A panoramic high-visibility roof 

A 360-degree ball camera in the inner mast

Red or blue floor spotlights mounted

on the overhead guard

An optical presence sensor for foot/operator protection

An adjustable floating steering wheel: customise the height and rotation angle

Low step-in height

Floor vibration-damping

Foot protection feature


The Li-Ion battery technology used to operate the SRO allows for opportunity charging, which increases productivity and reduces downtime. You can, however, equip the SRO with lead-acid batteries if that is your preferred source of power.


Stacker truck warehouse


Further to this, the SRO stand-in stacker has a multi-function display fitted, which offers three different driver settings that the forklift operator can choose from, depending on the task at hand. Pro, ECO and Easy are the three available driving modes, and each comes with its own specific benefits.

Sit-On Stacker Truck

With the SSO, maintenance and regular checkups can be carried out easily as both the battery compartment and machine house cover (which is hinged and removable) provide excellent access even in narrow spaces. That being said, the SSO’s connectors and sensors are sealed, which allows for long service intervals, reducing maintenance and improving uptime.

sso warehouse


The SSO can be powered by lead-acid batteries – the first choice for those looking for a cost-effective solution that’s also easily recyclable, or Li-Ion, which allows for opportunity charging and is arguably the most sustainable form of power on the market.

Unmissable features of the SSO

An energy-efficient AC drive motor to provide more torque 

A combi-controller lift system

Simultaneous hydraulic functions, forks and stabilisers

Highly responsive power steering

Overhead protection from guard pillars with the option of two different heights – 150mm or 160mm

An optional multi-function display which includes up to 100 operator IDs with PIN code access


SSO takes advantage of these highly sustainable battery options, as well as a simple, fail-safe battery lock, which can only be unlocked when the battery plug is disconnected, and locked if the battery plug is reconnected. This ensures that operators can change their batteries in good time, and with confidence.

As we’ve touched on previously, comfort is key. This sit-on stacker boasts adjustable steering controls which refine height and rotation, to reduce fatigue. The ergonomic armrest is fitted with quick-release handles and conveniently positioned buttons to reduce strain and maximise control.

In terms of visibility, the SSO provides the operator with protection via the overhead guard without compromising on the visuals. The overhead guard is designed with spaces on the mast to counteract the risk of blind spots, ensuring the operator can see both the forks and their pathway at all times. This reduces the risk of accidents caused by collisions with other operators or warehouse products.

Download the full brochure today to discover how the versatile SSO 1.2 - 2.0 tonne sit-on stacker can support your business and make your operations more sustainable.

To maintain an error-free, productive environment that decreases TCO and improves uptime, operator safety, comfort, and efficiency are essential. TCM's stacker truck series is a sustainable investment, both environmentally and in terms of lifetime value, thanks to its ergonomic design and intuitive features.
