Built to Perform
Comfortable CompartmentThe roomy compartment features a comfortable padded backrest and convenient walk-through access to either side of the aisle for more efficient access to carts.
Control HandleThe ergonomically designed handle features intuitive controls and allows for a neutral, natural hand position and convenient operation. The height adjustment feature accommodates a wide range of operator sizes.
Low Step HeightA low step height and wide step through allows convenient access to either side of the aisle for order picking applications and minimizes operator fatigue over the course of a shift.
ACR SystemRaymond’s exclusive ACR System™ provides longer battery life, more precise speed control, less downtime and a lower cost of ownership.
Less Energy UsageThe Raymond 8610 tow tractor requires fewer battery changes, so you move more per shift. That adds up to less batteries and lower energy costs overall.
Quick AccelerationACR also helps your operators get from pick to pick faster with quick acceleration speeds and smooth speed control.
Drive Tire AccessThe 8610 tow tractor drive tire is cantilever mounted on the drive unit, and can be removed with 5 bolts to change out in just minutes.
Electric BrakeUses reverse plugging to slow before applying the parking brake to minimize wear, and never requires adjustment.
Handle ComponentsHall-effect sensors in the handle replace potentiometers, and do not contact, which minimizes wear. CAN bus technology eliminates 40% of wiring, minimizing time needed for wiring and troubleshooting.
PowerSteerStandard PowerSteer reduces steer effort up to 90%, enabling your operators to move more product faster.
Fully ProgrammableOperators and managers alike appreciate programmable travel speeds and quicker acceleration. Fully programmable travel parameters help to accommodate different operator skills and experience levels as well as specific application needs.
Speed-Sensitive SteeringPowerSteer provides speed-sensitive steering for smooth, controlled operation at all speeds. It also automatically slows the truck when cornering, to maintain operator control.
Steel-Reinforced FrameReinforced steel gussets guard against impact to protect critical components, and tough casters add strength.
Bumper GuardAn optional heavy duty front bumper guard adds another level of protection to the cover and drive unit.
Pin and Clevis Tow Hitch
This heavy-duty hitch option is designed to interface with tow carts using eye-hitch types.
Automatic Coupler Tow Hitch
Save time connecting or disconnecting carts or trailers with this spring-loaded jaw hitch. It automatically closes when the ring on the trailer is pulled into the hitch.
Heavy-Duty Bumper Guard
The optional heavy-duty bumper guard adds another level of protection to the already durable front-end.
Interfaces with RAM-mounted accessories to put additional operator tools at their fingertips; available with optional work light and fan.
Smoothy tires hold a tighter tolerance for "roundness" – providing a more comfortable ride for operators and less vibration. Smoothy tires are also beneficial in applications where heat buildup or tire flat-spotting may be a concern.
The optional large storage tray helps to keep work tools organized and at your operators fingertips for added convenience and productivity throughout the shift.
Applications should not burden a truck with extensive capability to only transport horizontally. In batch picking and cart towing applications, Raymond tow tractors are a cost effective method for horizontal transport where stacking is not required. Tow tractors offer order picking functionality, and are available with various tow hitch configurations to maximize productivity, and offer a wide variety of operating positions to enhance operator comfort and minimize fatigue.
Low Level Order Picking
Boost throughput and pick rates with reliable, high performance Raymond tow tractors. We can customize our vast selection of lift trucks to enhance efficiency in order picking applications.
Cold Storage Environments
Refrigerated warehouses, blast freezers, and other cold storage applications require robust control systems. Raymond maintains its own cold storage test facility to replicate the harshest conditions; testing and proving our systems in extreme cycles of freezing and thawing.
UL EE Applications
This lift truck complies with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 583. Raymond Type E and EE trucks are designed and manufactured to operate in classified locations as defined in NFPA 505. Type E and EE products are tested and certified by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
