PACK MULE VS TAYLOR-DUNN

Pack Mule PC-300 NXG (24 v.) vs. Taylor-Dunn SS-534 (24 v.)

FeaturePack MuleTaylor-DunnWhy it matters

Cargo Capacity

750 lbs.

500 lbs.

Pack Mule provides 50% greater cargo capacity than Taylor-Dunn. That means a greater load with every trip and fewer trips, increasing productivity.

Deck Size

19.5 x 31.5" (614 sq. in.)

17" x 27" (459 sq. in.)

Pack Mule provides more than 25% more cargo space. Coupled with its greater cargo capacity, this means that Pack Mule can get more work done every trip.

Motor

Sealed, maintenance-free 9.6 HP A/C motor.

4.5 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. That means less downtime.

Battery

245 amp/hour

217 amp/hour. Upgrade available.

Higher amps per hour increase runtime and battery life. Pack Mule provides more than 10% more amp hours.

Steering

Heavy duty 1" steering pivot shaft and 1" front axle with tapered bearings and center support between front tires.

Plastic bearing blocks and bushings. ¾” steering pivot shaft and ¾” front axle with smaller bearings

Pack Mule’s more robust steering system reduces downtime, increasing productivity.

Turning Radius

63.5"

75"

Pack Mule’s turning radius, nearly a foot tighter than Taylor-Dunn’s means that Pack Mule operates more efficiently in tight places, increasing productivity and safety.

Cargo Deck Material

Melomine Laminated Decking

Painted Plywood Decking

Melomine lamination provides longer life and prevents early failure due to warping or splitting.

Braking

Dual programmable regenerative braking

Mechanical Drum

Regenerative braking converts energy created by braking and converts into energy for the battery. Pack Mule’s braking can be programmed to fit the specific needs of the application.

Tires

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.

Instrumentation

Smart View LCD meter showing battery state of charge, hour count, and fault codes.

Battery Discharge Indicator. Hour meter available as an upgrade

The Smart View display provides accurate information to help keep the vehicle in service longer between charges. The displayed fault codes simplify trouble shooting.

Controller

Advanced, fully programmable, tamper-proof controller capable of providing additional power when its needed and conserving power when it's not.

Solid-state controller, not programmable

The progamable controller allows the vehicle’s performance characteristics to be set specifically to loaction requirements, improving operation and safety.

Programmable high-frequency charger

Standard

Not Available

The programmable charger optimizes run time and extends battery life with temperature compensation and automatic cell equalization.

Construction

14-gauge, genuine diamond plated steel body on a 10-gauge unibody frame.

Lighter weight, 16-gauge diamond plate steel body.

Pack Mule’s more rugged construction means that it holds up better in high volume, heavy use applications. More productivity. Less downtime.

Warranty

Three-year Warranty. No hours limitations.

Two-Year or 2,000 Hours, whichever comes first.

Pack Mule provides you with the industry’s only three-year warranty, reflecting the confidence that Pack Mule has in the quality of its products.

 

How we compare the Pack Mule to the competition.

We go to great lengths to make sure that our comparisons between Pack Mule vehicles and others are as fair and accurate as possible. It doesn’t serve anyone’s interests for those depending on the comparisons to be disappointed. Basically, here’s how we do them:

  1. We purchase competitor vehicles from time to time through authorized channels, usually a dealer, specifying standard equipment and asking for quotes on appropriate upgrades.
  2. The competitor vehicle is tested alongside the Pack Mule.
  3. Wherever possible, we use the specifications on the machine we purchased. When we need additional specs, we use the ones published on the competitor’s web site, in the quote we received from their authorized dealer or published in their user manuals.
  4. We frequently check to see if anything has changed. If it has, we immediately change the comparison, as we do when the competitor provides us documentation of a change.
  5. We offer to back our comparisons up with on-site demos. If you’re currently using another manufacturer’s electric industrial vehicle, we’ll provide a Pack Mule for you to do your own comparison.
