Hybrid forklift AGVs with STILL, Linde, and Baoli fork trucks

Hybrid Forklift AGVs are able to automatically pick up and deliver pallets, rolls, carts, containers, and many other transportable loads in the exact way that pure-AGVs can. Hybrid AGVs with forks are the most common type of AGVs because they are so versatile. The vehicle can also be manually driven off the Guidepath to pick up a load and then placed back on the Guidepath for automatic travel and delivery. Pick up and delivery can be performed at floor level or to stands, racks, and conveyors. By choosing a hybrid Manual lift truck / AGV unit, you’re free to use the truck as a standard truck and drive while riding aboard the vehicle exactly as you would if you were driving a non-automated fork truck!
