Weigh and Move Goods at the Same Time with a Weigh Scale Pallet Truck

Weigh and Move Goods at the Same Time with a Weigh Scale Pallet Truck

A pallet truck scale is often used in warehouses, shipping areas, and other industrial environments to lift, move, and weigh goods all at the same time. This really helps to speed up business operations as there’s no need for goods to be taken elsewhere to be weighed before they are dispatched, and there’s less risk of lorries and other vehicles being overloaded with goods.

The benefits of using a weigh scale pallet truck 

  • It can prevent accidents or damage to machinery by accurately weighing boxes, containers, and goods on pallet before they are dispatched or stored. This is important in warehouses, where multiple pallets are often stored on racks and pallets should not be overstocked.
  • It can improve productivity. Being able to move and weigh items at the same time reduces the time it takes to load and handle each batch of goods.
  • They are easy to operate. They are usually operated by a large handle and they’re perfect for use where space is at a premium.

How to operate a weigh scale pallet truck

  • Make sure that the pallet truck is positioned on a flat, stable surface.
  • Carefully add load onto the forklift beams.
  • The built-in scale will weigh the goods and show this on a display.
  • If you are weighing several items, stack the loads carefully and wait until the weight load display is stable before adding any more load.
  • Once your items are stacked securely, they can be dispatched.
