A pallet truck is a truck used to move and transport pallets. Once slotted underneath the pallet, the truck can be moved up or down by pumping its handle.
A pallet truck, also known as a wheeled trolley, can be used to lift and transport pallets. When using the tapered forks, they slot underneath the pallet, and when pumped, it is effortless to raise and lower the load.
Why Do You Need to Use Pallet Trucks?
We offer our customers a range of pallet trucks that can be used for all palletized goods operations. Manual models are more compact and economical, while electric models transmit up to 220 volts and have automatic controls.
Pallet trucks are a solution to pallets, but they come with different levels of use. Manual or fully electronic models can be selected, so you have the choice. The platform and wheels will be a deciding factor as well.
- Pallet trucks are mainly used in warehouses to move pallets from one area to another. However, they can also lift multiple pallets at the same time, and they are able to do so safely because they are operated with safety belts, which the driver must wear.
- Industries can target solutions for specific tasks in order to standardize their trucks. For instance, you could have a truck that weighs the pallets with load-cells built-in or one to snag pallets during goods commissioning.
- Targeted pallet solutions allow adding specific functions to the machines, assuring standardized pallet trucks for specific intended uses, such as pallet trucks with built-in load weighing system, pallet trucks for goods commissioning, pallet trucks with the additional lifting of the forks, and pallet trucks to specifically handle ” pallets.”
