Power Pallet Trucks: Muscle For Moving Big Loads

Apr 14, 2008
When moving large amounts of material around it can take some time to accomplish. The human body can only carry so much at a time. Then you have to factor in the time for walking from one point to the next. The use of a pallet jack can help move more around than could be done if moved by hand. However, you still need to factor in the time that it takes to walk moving the pallet jack. To save even more time and complete a job quicker you would need to use power pallet trucks.

When You Have A Large Job

This piece of equipment carries many benefits, especially when dealing with a large job. While each specific brand will have its own weight capacity, you can still rest assured that you can move larger amounts with this equipment than you could by hand. Therefore, with that purpose I will be discussing this equipment in general instead of by brand specific. This will give you an overall understanding of the benefits of having a power pallet truck for your on the job needs.

The time consuming task of walking while moving objects with a pallet jack is eliminated with this equipment - you have a ride on a platform that you stand on to lift the load onto the forks, and then away you go from one point to the next. This is possible since the equipment is powered. Now the job can be done in less than half the time it would have taken you had you needed to walk to move the load around.

Comfortable Operation

For those that want a little more comfort with their equipment you can choose one that has a sit-on platform instead of the stand on. You get the same concept but a little more extra comfort.

If the equipment is battery powered then most likely it will come with a built in charger. This saves you time since you can charge the batteries on the spot instead of having to take the battery out and place it in a separate charger. This ensures that you can consistently have a full charged battery while working. This is a benefit when needing to get a job done and over with quickly.

Many Options To Choose From

When it comes to choices with pallet trucks, you have many to choose from. First off, aside from the above-mentioned options, you have the option of the standard 27 x 48 import or you can go with American made domestic equipment. Then there are the special applications that you can have on your equipment. Special applications include zinc coated, stainless steel and low profile.

For those jobs that require placing material up really high, you have the choice of extra high lift on your equipment. For outdoor jobs, you can even choose to have a giant steering wheel while on your power pallet truck. This adds a little more maneuverability to your equipment; it is of course are only recommended as a special application for outdoor use only. Time is money, so make your choices then save yourself time and money on the job.
