All Counterbalanced Walkie models are supplied with a key switch, battery discharge indicator and hour meter. The key switch must be activated to operate any function of the machine. The battery discharge indicator (BDI) is a bar graph type which lets the operator know when the machine requires recharging. All models include a large 700 lb. 24-volt wet acid industrial battery which can operate the machine for 16 hours continuously. This type of BDI is extremely helpful in determining charging requirements depending on usages especially during 3 shift operations. BDI’s are factory preset to read wet acid batteries or optional maintenance free Gel-Cell batteries which can be used for convenience charging. The BDI also has warning lights to alert operators of low battery conditions. Battery chargers are optional for each machine purchased as they are external chargers and not built-in to the machine. The hour meter is used in conjunction with scheduled maintenance requirements outlined in each operation manual. The hour meter also serves as a display for trouble shooting and changing maximum speed parameters.
