Another industry first: the Wiggins Agricultural electric forklift!

Tier IV engines are only a temporary step on the way to Zero Emissions. Forthcoming regulations will ban diesel engines in all off-highway equipment. The Wiggins Agricultural eBull is a groundbreaking solution. With a 10 year equipment replacement cycle, for example, the time to start electrification at your facility is now.

Utilizing the latest battery technology, the Wiggins eBull derives all its energy from high voltage Lithium Ion battery packs, designed and built by Thor Trucks. Safe High Voltage 720 VDC keeps power delivery strong and efficient while helping to keep weight and costs down. High Torque, direct drive, AC electric motor feeds power to our proven drive axles for high pulling power and gradability. Zero Emissions for clean operations inside buildings and ships, without fumes, soot, or noise.

Wiring, circuit protections, connectors, and overall design protect the batteries and all electrical components from damage. Certifications of compliance with UL-583 and ITSDF B56.1 safety standards are expected early 2019. Batteries are protected by steel enclosures, high capacity cooling systems for each pack, vibration and shock isolation mounting. The Battery Management System balances charging and discharging rates, controls temperatures throughout the battery packs, prolongs battery lifetime. The Vehicle Control Unit controls power and temperatures in the liquid cooled electric motors and inverters. Radiator Protection includes expanded metal screen.

The Produce Handler can unload a truck in a single pick. Handling up to fourteen pallets at once, it saves time, getting produce into the cooler faster. This truck was designed from the ground up for high load and long load center applications. Fully electric, it also features fork positioning and slope piling.

No engine oil or filter changes, no DEF, no diesel fuel spills, no transmission oil or filter changes. Electricity has higher energy efficiency than diesel and costs less per shift to operate. Check with your utility for further cost reductions through programmed Time-Of-Use charging.

The Wiggins Marina FLX — A revolutionary new approach to marina lifts

The Wiggins Marina FLX — A revolutionary new approach to marina lifts

The Marina FLX is a revolutionary new approach to marina lifts. With it’s all wheel steering it can maneuver in spaces never before possible. With all-wheel steering this lift can maneuver like nothing else! The boat sits inside the lift’s body so your aisles just got much narrower. Narrow aisles means more boats and more boats means more customers. This revolutionary lift will change the way you think about your marina.

4-Wheel Steering. Sometimes known as “coordinated steering” or “radius steering,” the front and rear tires can turn at the same angle but in opposite directions. This allows for sharp turns around tight corners without clipping your racks.

Side Step Turns. With all four wheels able to turn 90 degrees, the operator can move the FLX sideways down an aisle with little effort. Traditional lifts would require several back-and-forth turns just to re-orient the lift to move down an aisle. Why change the direction of the lift when you can merely change the direction of the tires?

Crab steering. Racking a boat requires precision. It is not uncommon for an operator to turn too soon or too late. Now, when minor adjustments are needed, corrections can be made without backing out and repeating turns that waste time.

Pivot Turning. The Marina FLX allows the operator to line up the wheels alongside a rack and execute a sharp pivot turn where the inside tires remains stationary and the boat slips easily into its storage bay for quick placement.

An industry first: the Wiggins Yard eBull

An industry first: the Wiggins Yard eBull

Wiggins Lift Co. has introduced the first commercially available zero emission large capacity forklift. Fully electronic and manufactured in the US, it has capacities ranging from 30,000 to 70,000 lbs.

This lift will enable you to stay ahead of the approaching regulations that will eliminate diesel engines in all off-highway equipment. With a 10-year equipment replacement cycle, for example, the time to start electrification at your facility is now. (Tier IV engines are only a temporary step on the way to Zero Emissions.)

All power comes from unique high voltage Lithium Ion battery packs, designed and built by Thor Trucks. Safe High Voltage 720 VDC keeps power delivery strong and efficient while helping to keep weight and costs down. High Torque, direct drive, AC electric motor feeds power to our proven drive axles for high pulling power and gradability. Zero Emissions for clean operations inside buildings and ships, without fumes, soot, or noise.

Maintenance is minimal and cost-saving. Change the air filters on the battery cooling system once a year. Optional Automatic Greasing is available for mast and steer axle. Hydraulic axle brakes can last the life of the machine. On-Board Diagnostics assist with maintenance and repairs. No engine oil or filter changes, no DEF, no diesel fuel spills, no transmission oil or filter changes. Electricity has higher energy efficiency than diesel and costs less per shift to operate.

Wiggins is always about safety. Unique battery technology eliminates potential for cascade failures. Other features are reverse backup camera, daylight strobes when moving, optional rear facing radar with audible and visual warnings, and optional noise makers include conventional backup alarm and modern White Noise Generator to alert nearby pedestrians.

Designed and built for long life and strong like a bull. Many Wiggins forklifts delivered in the last 60 years are still working for their owners or are commanding high resale value. We know, because we provide parts and repair support for units that started service decades ago. Join our customer family with confidence of a fair and comprehensive warranty coupled with on-going support.

Wiggins Lift and the US Military

For decades, Wiggins has worked with various branches of military organizations. We have a proven record for completing complex projects on time, on budget, and of the highest quality. Below are a few examples.

Tunnel Truck (US Army)

How do you carry a 12-foot tall panel down an 8 foot high tunnel and then set it upright in a large gallery? Wiggins does so by engineering a 90-degree tilt back, 90-degree rotation, and places the operator out of the way, but where everything can be seen clearly.

Littoral Combat Ship (US Navy)

A fast, stealthy ship that can operate in heavy seas needs a forklift to safely handle mission packages belowdecks. The Wiggins LCS does just that with three computers, a dozen sensors, safety control programming, and a locking stability steer axle. The operator gets the job done safely and quickly—even while the deck is pitching and rolling! UL rated and U.S. Navy-approved, with shock-load analysis and certified for use in heat, cold, rain, salt, and fog.

Boat Handler (Singapore Navy)

For the Singapore Navy, Wiggins designed and manufactured this marina lift with custom forks designed to lift navy boats from trailers. It also sports a custom lift height and fail-safe components. After three days of performance testing specifically required by the Singapore Navy, this lift passed with flying colors.

Wiggins Lift—custom engineering and manufacturing to meet your unique material-handling needs

Wiggins Lift—custom engineering and manufacturing to meet your unique material-handling needs

At our manufacturing facility in California, we use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques both for engineering and manufacturing. This enables us to be creative as we partner with our clients to produce custom solutions. Wiggins Lift is known for our custom engineering, unlike other manufacturers who produce assembly-line forklifts.

This includes custom attachments for material handling of tires, rebar, large spools, and more; low-profile lifts for small spaces; ordnance handling forklifts for use aboard ships, and more. But we also design and build more unusual solutions. Here are just three examples:

Trash Cylinders

Residential trash trucks deal with a pretty dirty environment. Wiggins was asked to design and manufacture a cylinder that could not only perform well, but weigh less than previous solutions. A lighter truck means a more trash can be transported at once, saving time and money. The addition of a rod scraper consistently removes debris from the cylinder, protecting the seals and increasing reliability.

Drill Rig Modifications and Load Stands

Drilling rigs are fraught with complex regulations and requirements. Wiggins designed and manufactured a self-erecting stand with a BOP (Blow-Out Preventer) to keep the drillers safe as they work above the well head. Because it was self-erecting, it removed the need and expense of a standard crane installation. Tested to 150 tons, the need for safety and precision was paramount. Wiggins delivered.

Stationary Mask and Lift Cylinders

Because Wiggins designs and manufactures its own lift cylinders, we can provide solutions for stationary lift applications. For example, the need to lift a heavy-duty entertainment lighting and laser array from an underground position to 70 feet above ground. The cylinders had to sustain high cycles and have a long life. Another example of Wiggins’ ability to engineer solutions to unique situations.
