Pallet trucks, also known as pallet jacks or pallet lifters, are essential material handling equipment used in warehouses, distribution centers, and other industrial settings. They are designed to efficiently and safely move palletized loads from one place to another.
A pallet truck typically consists of a wheeled platform with two forks underneath. These forks can be inserted into the openings or slots on a pallet, allowing the truck to lift and transport the palletized goods. Pallet trucks are usually operated manually, with the operator pushing or pulling the handle to maneuver the load.
Electric pallet trucks, on the other hand, are a type of material handling equipment that operates using an electric motor instead of manual force. They offer several advantages over manual pallet trucks and are widely used in warehouses, distribution centers, and other industrial environments.
