Man Up Order Pickers



The man up order industrial truck is commonly used inside warehouse for picking loose cases or loose items from pallets at high levels.

It is suited to handling medium to low volumes and weights of up to 1,200 KG. 

The man up picking truck provided picking at levels up to 12m.


Course overview


This course complies with the recommendations of the Health & Safety Commission “Approved Code Of Practice and Supplementary Guidance for Rider Operated Lift Truck Operator Training” (L117).

On successful completion of this theoretical and practical training course trainees should be able to operate the machine safely and skilfully. They will have practiced manoeuvring the machine both unladen and laden in confined areas, stacked and de-stacked at various levels and will have been instructed in daily and pre-shift inspection and refuelling procedures.

All trainees will also have undergone the appropriate theoretical and practical tests of ‘basic operating skills and knowledge’ as endorsed by the appropriate accrediting bodies.

Successful candidates will be certificated and their employers will receive a written assessment and a certificate of attendance.

Pick orders efficiently at any height


The vertical order pickers from offer the operator an ergonomic working area and intuitive operation. 

In addition, the cushioned cabs, low entry height, and low railing aim to prevent fatigue and make picking easier.

The high lifting and travel speeds can be adjusts to the customer’s individual picking tasks on the basis of a modular system. 

The vertical order pickers reach picking heights of up to twelve metres. Depending on the model, they boast a lifting capacity of up to 1,200 kilograms.




The truck can only be moved if the operator is touching the sensors on the control unit with both hands and activating the dead man’s switch in the foot well. This reduces the risk of both operating errors and injury. The electrically monitored side barriers must be closed for platform heights of 1.2 metres and above in order to ensure the operator is safe. Optional scanners on the front and rear monitor the route and stop the truck if there are people or obstacles in the way. The service technician can define general travel, lift, and lowering end stops in the truck system in order to make collisions with ceilings or walls impossible. The specially designed mast allows for particularly good visibility, therefore contributing to safe operation.


  • Three point operation
  • Electrically monitored barriers
  • Pre-adjustable travel, lift, and lowering end stops.
  • Very good visibility through the mast


The vertical order pickers have an ergonomically shaped control panel and generous cab. 

The ground of the spring-mounted platform is covered with a soft mat, which absorbs vibrations during movement or lifting and therefore prevents fatigue. Instead of the mat, the edge of the cab floor has a fixed base so that the operator can stand safely during order picking. In addition, a low railing makes the picking process easier. 

The side barriers can optionally tilt outwards so that it is easier to access the racking.




High lifting and travel speeds, as well as low energy consumption, are characteristic of the various three-phase motors used in the vertical order pickers. The trucks therefore quickly reach lift heights of up to twelve metres, ultimately ensuring improved handling performance. At the same time, they also have a high residual load capacity at these heights. The precise electrical steering unit, with which the truck can be manoeuvred easily and quickly, also ensures effective picking processes.


  • High lifting and travel speeds
  • High residual load capacity
  • Precise steering movements for quick manoeuvring
  • Low energy consumption
