RICO designed the Pegasus series counterbalance truck to meet the most demanding industries: Steel and Automotive.
The Pegasus counterbalance truck series is showcased as a workhorse for the automotive stamping and manufacturing facilities across the globe. This design offers a solution with a hydraulic clamp feature integrated into the carriage of the mast to safely secure stacked sheet steel and automotive chassis frames. The clamp mechanism offers non-marking nylon strips and pressure regulated hydraulics to ensure limited load movement and damage free operation.
