Varied Pallet Trucks
At Trucks And Trolleys Direct we have every pallet solution you could need for your warehouse. With both manual and powered solutions, you are sure to find something that fits your needs and requirements. Each one has been constructed to handle excessive amounts of weight while also being safe and easy to use – particularly if they are hand operated. The powered solutions range from those that are entirely powered to those that are semi-electric and represent a more affordable solution, although you will have to carefully consider what applications it will be used for.
Hand operated pallet trucks can carry some extreme loads, but they offer nothing in the way of powered lifting capability. As such, they are considerably cheaper than powered options and will often come in at less than £300. Some are capable of holding up to 2500 kilograms, which can vastly increase the scope of the device but it does come with extra safety considerations since you could be moving up to 2.5 tons. All of your employees should be aware of safety precautions as well as the maintenance of the device. The lift height is between 85 mm and 200 mm while the width over forks extends between 450, 540 and 680 mm. Make no mistake, however, this truck is certainly heavy duty and is designed to deal with the loads specified.
Semi electric options are a great investment if you are aiming for increased efficiency without necessarily footing the cost of fully powered electric pallet trucks. A semi-powered option can also reduce the possibility of injury because it will reduce the need to pull heavy loads. They are also built to be simple to operate and maintain, requiring only the minimum of checks when required. They are also very quiet while also offering fantastic manoeuvrability with 180° steering. Weight options including 1 ton or 1.5 ton and come in two different size options.
A fully powered pallet stacker is the most expensive option but they can increase productivity and end up paying for themselves over time. They have a multitude of different warehouse and loading applications and can generally make life a lot easier for the operator. The battery life is a concern, however, but our options will give you between 2-3 hours for the 1300 kg cap. variety while the 2000 kg cap. offers between 6 and 8 hours, depending on loads and usage. The lift height is between 85 mm and 205 mm while the widths are 540 mm and 680 mm. The length of the forks are much more varied than other models, which can take some thought on your behalf. The 1300kg model has lengths of 1000 or 1150 mm while the 2000 kg model allows for only 1150 lengths. The 680 mm forks are designed for suitable use with GKN pallets. These varieties can also be used in concert with a vehicle with tail lift. Charging the device is easy as well as is overall maintenance.
