Order Picker Attachment

Manufacturing facilities and warehouses are constantly looking for unique avenues to reduce waste, increase efficiencies, and do more with less. Jtec specializes in exactly that. In this article, we explore how Jtec’s Order Picker Attachment increases ergonomics, decreases waste, and reduces maintenance costs on carts in vertical picking applications. 


Jtec’s Order Picker Attachment (OPA) offers a wide range of benefits for businesses in vertical picking applications. With the OPA, operators gain an additional foot of standing room, boosting comfort and ergonomics while handling parts at height. The attachment ensures a secure connection between the order picker truck and carts, minimizing wasted time and providing peace of mind. By protecting cart casters from damage caused by drops, the OPA reduces maintenance costs and extends cart lifespan, resulting in long-term cost savings. 

1) Additional Work Space

The picker truck provides a foot of additional standing room for the operator. When compared to most picker trucks, that equates to around a 35% increase in standing room. The increase is substantial for operator comfort and ergonomics when picking parts above the ground. 

2) Secure Connection

Next, the OPA allows for a quick and secure connection of the carts. When picking and dropping off carts, little time is wasted by the operator. With both primary and secondary latching mechanisms, operators can rest assured, knowing the carts will remain safely attached to the OPA. 

3) Cuts Down Cost and Maintenance

The final primary benefit of the attachment is that it helps keep your cart fleets running more efficiently and for longer periods of time. The attachment takes away the abuse of dropping your cart on its casters. Over time, this causes damage to the casters, which can be expensive and is one of the most important components of your cart.
