When you’re moving pallets in a warehouse, you’d either use a forklift or a pallet truck. The advantage of a pallet truck is that it’s just easier to manoeuvre, especially in tight spaces. But what is it and how can it benefit your warehouse operations?
A pallet truck (or pallet jack), is a simple type of forklift you can use for moving pallets and loads. They are a great investment for any warehouse because they improve efficiency. Workers don’t have to waste time looking for a forklift to move heavy loads when they can do the same job. What were multiple-person jobs can be done by one worker with a pallet truck, saving you time and money.
Depending on what job you need doing in your warehouse, there’s a pallet truck to meet your needs.
This truck is a good all-rounder and makes light work of lifting and moving heavy goods.
This is a handy truck to have if workers are moving heavy loads every day. The extra power takes the stress and strains out of moving pallet and palletised loads.
The high-lift truck is a true multi-tasker. As you might guess from the name, it can lift goods higher than your average pallet truck. It also doubles up as a lifting table and workbench, so forget about bending and twisting to reach what you need, doing the hard work for you.
Need to weigh your loads before you dispatch or distribute them? Weigh-scale pallet trucks have built-in weighing scales as well as the functionality of a standard truck.
