RICO expands EX program with new models

adminEx, News & Articles

RICO understands how important EX-rated lift trucks are to our customers’ operations. RICO is excited to announce the second expansion our Explosion Proof rental program – featuring new models for more applications and increased availability.   

Supply chain disruptions can be catastrophic to manufacturers, especially when it comes to hazardous areas where urgency is critical to maintain safety and compliance. 

This spring, RICO introduced new designs of our sit down counterbalanced and walk behind pallet trucks further expanding the application range of our Explosion Proof program.  The HSD-EX-AC-40 sit down counterbalanced handles up to 4,000 pound loads and has the best maneuverability in the industry in its class.  The HPWH-EX-80 walk behind pallet truck features exceptional maneuverability and offers increased load capacities up to 8,000 pounds.  We will be featuring these designs in the coming weeks, so be sure to stay tuned for more information. 

We have also increased our in-stock inventory of two (2) of our most popular and versatile EX 6,000 lb capacity sit down counterbalanced lift trucks – the DSD-EX-AC-60 and the HSD-EX-AC-60 – to ensure our partners are able to source the truck they need when they need it. 

Whether it’s with a custom build, or something more short term, RICO is your partner in EX trucks that handle specialized industries and applications.

  • Adhesive

When investing in a lift truck, exploring customization options that can better your vehicle’s productivity and safety is a critical part of the buying process.
