Pallet Trucks

A pallet truck is one of the most famous warehouse tools in the world. If you visit any industrial, storage or commercial warehouse there is guaranteed to be several pallet trucks, or pump trucks as they’re also known. An excellent quality hand pallet truck with a large load capacity is sure to increase productivity, as the more loads which can be transported without the use of a forklift truck is a bonus for any industry.


Benefits of a pallet truck


  • Pallet trucks are more cost effective than a forklift

  • With correct handling, can lift heavy loads on pallets with ease

  • High quality rubber wheels suitable for various floor surfaces

  • Epoxy coated finish on forks

  • Increased safety with spring guard on pallet truck

  • Can lift 2.5 tonne load capacity

Do these pallet trucks have any safety features?


Of course, health and safety is always the number one activity to be looked at, especially when handling heavy loads and equipment. Across our range, a number of safety features are built in, including:


  • Reinforced pallet entry rollers - These small wheels will work towards a smooth entry into the pallet and stop any forced pushing or pulling movement.

  • Spring guard - The spring guard will stop any damage to the user or others around. Users will be unable to put their fingers near the spring if used incorrectly. Also in the unlikely event the mechanism fails, the spring will not fire out, as it will be caught by the guard.

How does a hand pallet truck work?


Using a manual lift operation, pallet trucks work by sliding the forks into the open area underneath the pallet, the user will then use the pump action with the handle to lift the load on to the pallet.


Use of the pallet truck handle


Each pallet truck comes with a large ergonomic handle, with a smaller level handle built in. The smaller handle works with 3 positions. The positions may vary depending on the model, however the operations are usually lift, lower and drive. In the drive position, the pallet truck can be moved around large and narrow spaces with the use of the large and smaller wheels. The lower function of the trolley will gently drop the pallet of goods down to the destination it has arrived. And the lift function does exactly what it says, as soon as the forks have entered the pallet, the lift position is applied and the truck can be pumped to elevate the pallet to the desired height.
