With 20% greater cargo capacity Pack Mule can carry more with every load. That means higher efficiency, fewer trips, and lower maintenance and labor costs.
Usable Deck Space
48" x 31.5" (1,512 sq. inches) standard with six optional sizes
49-5/16" x 29.5" (1448.5 sq. inches)
With Pack Mule, you get the most deck space and — six optional size upgrades. (Taylor-Dunn claims their deck length is 58.5” but over 9” of that is not usable.)
Equal towing doesn’t necessarily mean equal productivity. Pack Mule’s significantly larger cargo capacity and standard AC power system means more work gets done every shift.
17.3 hp sealed A/C motor
8.8 hp separately excited, not sealed
Pack Mule’s more powerful sealed motor provides greater power and no possibility of anything getting caught in the motor. The A/C motor has no brushes to replace, eliminating motor maintenance.
217 amp/hour. Upgrade available.
Higher amps per hour increase runtime and battery life. Pack Mule provides almost 15% more amp hours. In field tests, Pack Mule provided 50% greater run time than Taylor-Dunn.
Heavy duty 1" steering pivot shaft and 1" front axle with tapered bearings and center support between front tires. Automotive-type steering wheel.
3/4" steering pivot shaft and 3/4" front axle with smaller bearings. "Clover" steering with an available upgrade to automotive-style steering wheel ($94)
Ease and precision of steering not only affect driver performance, but also safety, especially in close areas. Additionally, the more robust steering system greatly reduces downtime.
Cargo Deck Material
Melomine Laminated Decking
Painted Plywood Decking
Melomine lamination provides longer life and prevents early failure due to warping or splitting.
Programmable dual regenerative braking
Pack Mule’s dual regenerative braking more efficiently harvests the kinetic energy created by the brakes to return to the batteries, increasing run time and reducing brake pad wear.
Heavy-duty, 6 ply Load Range C (90 psi). Dual front tires.
4-ply Load Range B (60 psi). Single front tire
Not only do Pack Mule’s heavier-duty tires increase load capacity, but their 90 psi inflation reduces rolling resistance, increasing the vehicle’s run time. The dual front tires provide increased stability and control.
Smart View Display
Smart View Display
Provides management and maintenance information to accurately track vehicle usage so that preventative maintenance can be performed properly, decreasing machine failures.
Fully programmable, tamper-proof controller
Solid-state controller, not programmable
The programmable controller allows the vehicle’s performance characteristics to be set specifically to location requirements, improving operation and safety.
Not available. Upgrade available as part of the $315 "Comfort Kit."
Ergonomic matting increases operator comfort and reduces fatigue. This contributes to safer, more productive operation.
Fully-enclosed operator foot area
Increases operator safety as well as protecting the internal workings of the vehicle.
Adjustable Back Rest
The adjustable backrest allows for a better backrest fit, reducing operator fatigue and increasing safety and productivity.
Steps on Backrest
Available as an upgrade ($191)
Let’s the operator move quickly and easily to hard-to-reach places, saving time and reducing operator fatigue.
Genuine heavy-duty 14-gauge diamond plate steel welded to a 10-gauge unibody frame.
Lighter-weight 16-gauge diamond plate steel.
Welded Heavier gauge steel means a safer, sturdier vehicle that will hold up in high-volume industrial applications.
Multi-position hitch plate
Single position hitch plate. No upgrade.
Pack Mule’s multi-position hitch plate allows hitch height to be adjusted to meet the specific application.
Three-year warranty. No hours limitation.
Two-year or 2,000 hours, whichever comes first.
Pack Mule’s confidence in its quality allowed it to introduce the industry’s first (and only) three-year warranty.
