Most warehouses require pallets of products moving or transporting from one place to another. You want your pallet truck to be solid and reliable. That's exactly what our hand pallet trucks are.
A pallet truck is an essential piece of warehouse equipment in the Uk.
They are the most basic form of forklift truck. When you compare it to other options for transporting palletised goods around, it's a decent cost-effective choice. Around the country depending on who you're talking to, you may hear them referred to as a pallet jack or pump truck amongst other names.
No matter how you refer to your pallet truck, the operational principle is still the same. Each truck has a manual and reliable leak-proof hydraulic system to make moving pallet loads a breeze.The truck is operated via a tiller like lever that doubles up as a pump handle to raise and lower the truck. When the handle is pumped, the hydraulic fluid helps the truck raise the forks and their palletised load. There's a small lever within the handle that when pulled, releases the hydraulic fluid and causes the forks to lower.
On each hand pallet truck there are two sets of wheels. There are wheels that aid steering the truck generally located at the base of the tiller like lever. The other wheels are positioned near the end of each of the truck's forks. These wheels on some pallet trucks come in tandem sets and work better than their single counterparts. The tandem wheel option allows easier entry when loading up the truck with a pallet, easily sliding over the wooden base of the pallet.
These wheels in the forks have another function also. The front wheels are attached to levers so that when the truck is pumped up, the wheels are forced down and this raises the forks up. This helps the truck raise it's pallet load clear of the floor.

Use your truck to move pallets safely.
When operatives are moving pallets around all day, you want to make sure they are being safe and efficient. This is where the strong construction of our Pramac pallet trucks really comes in to it's own. With a max load capacity of 2000kg - 3000kg distributed evenly, these are hand pallet trucks for every warehouse.
It's a good idea to make sure operatives are checking the weight of the load before moving it with the pallet truck. Even though 3000kg is going to be more than enough capacity to move most warehouse items, it's best to check the load weight against the trucks capacity and remove the risk of foot injury. An easy way to check load weight is to use a weighing pallet truck with built in scales.
The manual pallet trucks also need to be checked regularly to make sure they are in good working order. Tyres should be checked for damage or punctures as soft tyres make the trucks difficult to push. Also where pneumatic tyres are used, the pressure needs to be checked at regular times.
All the information relating to each of our pallet trucks is available on this site. Hand pallet truck dimensions can be found on each product page, either in the item description or by clicking on the 'specs' tab.
These are some of our most popular pallet trucks:
Standard Pallet Truck
Every warehouse needs one of these! Easy to manoeuvre on polyurethane steer wheels and nylon rollers, it lets you move loads of up to 2200kg UDL in a flash. Our standard pallet truck comes with Next Day Delivery as standard. This is especially handy when your old work horse pallet truck dies and you need a replacement quickly. Make sure you place your standard pallet truck order before 12pm to guarantee your next day delivery.
Premium Pallet Truck
The best priced premium pallet truck on the market! The difference between standard and premium pallet trucks is the load capacity. Whilst standard versions can’t exceed 2200kg, the premium versions can take between 2500kg and 3000kg depending on requirement. You'll also get a nice upgrade to pallet entry rollers which increase control and smoothness as you load up.

For extra long loads we recommend the Long Pallet Truck range to save headaches. It handles with the same ease as our standard pallet trucks with the added benefit of longer forks. There's three lengths to choose from; 1350mm, 1800mm or a long 2000mm length.
Low Profile Pallet Truck

With a max load capacity of 2000kg UDL, the low profile pallet truck doesn't compromise on performance.
