High Lift Pallet Truck

In a busy warehouse, you need to move heavy goods quickly, safely, and efficiently on a daily basis. To keep your operations running like clockwork, you need to invest in the right equipment.  A high lift pallet truck is an essential piece of kit for your warehouse. But what is it and why do you need it? Read on to find out.

What is a high lift pallet truck?

They are an integral piece of warehouse equipment that will help to lift and move pallets and goods around warehouses. Think of them as a simple forklift truck.

A high lift pallet truck is a lifting aid that can raise a pallet up to a safe working height. This reduces the need for operators to bend to handle loads. They can either be manual or electric powered.

Why do I need one for my warehouse?

They reduce the risk of injury

Most back injuries at work occur from bending to lift awkward or heavy goods. A high lift pallet truck is an aid that allows operatives to handle loads without bending

You’ll save time and money

A high lift pallet truck can make your warehouse operations more efficient, saving you time and money. For example:

  • It can make lifting loads up to the floor height of vans a breeze. 
  • A lifting aid can protect goods from damage.
  • Allowing you to move large deliveries from the loading bay and onto your premises fast. 
  • It lets one operator lift goods that it might have taken many people to lift manually.

High lift pallet trucks are multi-taskers

When you invest in one, you’re not just getting a pallet truck. You’re getting a mobile workstation, where operators can pack and unpack pallets of goods at a convenient height. 

Buying a high lift pallet truck-things to consider

When buying there are a few things to consider.

  • What will you be using it for?
  • What is the typical weight that it will be lifting? They have a maximum load capacity that must not exceed for safety.
  • What kind of area will you use it in? Is space-restricted?
  • Do you want a manual or electric option? Electric-powered pallet trucks are an even safer choice. Leading to a reduction in the physical demand on the operator even more and allow them to lift loads at the touch of a button.

A high lift pallet truck is the perfect choice for safer and more efficient warehouse operations.
