The manual pallet truck is operated via a handle that lifts and lowers the fork. This type of pallet truck is usually used for lifting small amounts of pallets, or in a small warehouse. The ride-on pallet truck is far superior as it can cover a greater distance, lift heavier weights, so many more pallets can be lifted at any one time, and it can reach higher levels than a manual pallet truck. Therefore if you need to move and stack large amounts of pallets in a large warehouse environment, then you really need a ride-on pallet truck to do this job for you.
These electric pallet trucks are high speed, are able to quickly charge and are versatile because they can be used in narrow spaces. This ability to work anywhere in the warehouse space alongside the fact that they can be quickly charged, while moving at speed can only help to improve productivity.
Electric pallet trucks simply make moving palletised loads easier. They utilise power that is stored in a battery creating the benefit of power drive and power lift, which reduces the effort required an operator needs to use to move product. It also allows operation to maximise productivity with the elimination of manually operated functions.
This equipment is classified as pedestrian and doesn’t require a license to be operated. It is advised that every person who uses pedestrian equipment undergoes training from a site supervisor and is shown the correct way to operate the unit.
