When a counter-balanced forklift isn’t right for your needs, a pallet jack may be what your warehouse needs. Warehouses and distribution settings often depend on pallet jacks when space is confining. Pallet jacks include walkies, end-controlled riders and center-controlled riders, walkie stackers, and walkie reach trucks. While warehouses are the most common destination for pallet jacks, they are also used in retail and manufacturing environments due to their flexibility and the increased productivity.
Finding the right because of equipment can be confusing, but choosing a pallet jack is commonly based of measurements. If it is going to run under fifty feet, hand pallet jacks and electric walkie pallet jacks are very effective. If it will be used for exactly fifty feet, an electric walkie pallet jack is suitable; they are manufactured in a variety of sizes and capacities. If it runs for more than fifty feet, an end-controlled rider pallet jack or center-controlled rider pallet jack will allow for higher travel speeds during horizontal transport.
Electric pallet jacks are often the premier choice for warehouse applications. They can be used in a variety of applications for whatever the warehouse’s need may be. They are often used because they are less expensive than traditional forklifts and fit in smaller spaces. They also have a smaller operating cost and more user friendly. While they have limited vertical height and less flexibility, they still serve many warehouses well.
