Electric Pallet Stackers

Nov 6, 2007
Large containers are often crated in such a fashion that standard pallet jacks cannot lift them. Large containers of unique dimensions likewise are difficult to manipulate with even the sturdiest of pallet jacks. Standard hydraulic pumping mechanisms, even if strong enough to lift a heavy load, place too much strain on the human frame to operate safely over long periods of time. Pallet stackers & servers solve this problem by providing a material-handling tool with heavy load capacity, powerful lift, and ergonomic maneuverability. Each of the three major pallet server & stacker lines is designed to be used when a fork truck is not available.

The largest of the three electric pallet stacker server lines, the pallet master stacker, can easily handle pallets, skids, and crates that are built both with and without understructure. For receiving operations that intake supplies from multiple manufacturers--all of whom package products in different way--the pallet master stacker provides an all in one tool that can unload multiple trucks and varying sizes of supplies. The standard unit has a maximum load capacity of 4,000 pounds and 60 inches of raided height, this ergonomic pallet server is a truly versatile tool that excels in a variety of applications. Workers can operate the unit with a fingertip rocker switch control. No manual exertion is required to lift even the largest and most cumbersome of loads. The forks measure 36 inches long to anticipate virtually any size pallet or crate that one might need to move and feature a load center within 18 inches of each fork. This helps to balance and distribute weight to ensure that regardless of load size or build it the pallet server can hold it firmly in place. This electric pallet stacker works very well on a variety of floor surfaces also. Two 8 inches by 2 inches phenolic swivel casters guide the wheels and ensure mobility over occasional spots of debris or rough concrete in older warehouses. Easy Rack can install an optional remote or on-board battery charger by client request. A charge indicator also can be installed in DC units.

For lighter loads, use the smaller version of the pallet stacker master, the Counter-Balanced Pallet Stacker. It is ideal for moving pallets and skids from one workstation to another. The horizontal load center is balanced at 18 inches, and its adjustable forks range from 8 inches to 28 inches in length. This pallet server is provided in three different power options. Choose from 12 Volt DC power, 115 Volt AC power, or Air/Oil power. The Counter-Balanced Pallet Master is very easy to move around on its 8 inches by 3 inches phenolic casters. It is even easier to control. A push button pendant attached to the unit on an 8 foot coil cord allows workers to maneuver the unit either at close distance or while standing back several feet. This feature is especially useful when moving pallets down stacked aisles where it may be too cramped for the employee to physically walk and maneuver the pallet server at the same time.

The Counter-Balanced Pallet Stacker functions just like its name suggests. In addition to being able to move small loads from one place to another without the need of an oversized fork truck, it also allows for workers to access the load from three different sides of the pallet server. In the front, the end is open, and this enables the forks to be next to the workstation for easy loading and unloading. The unit includes a standard 12 Volt DC power lift with an on-board charger, and it includes a counterbalance as well. Push buttons on the power unit make it easy for workers to raise and lower the lift. Easy Rack can also provide an optional hand control on coil cord if requested. The Counter-Balanced Pallet Stacker also features superior security by means of a key operated ON/OFF control built into the power unit.
