Most warehouses and factories require pallets loads of products moving from one place to another. As such an essential piece of equipment, you need your pallet trucks to be solid and reliable.
A pallet truck is essential warehouse equipment
A pallet truck is essentially a basic form of forklift truck. For transporting palletised goods around they are a very cost-effective choice. Depending on who you talk to, you may hear them referred to as a pallet jack, pump truck and hand pallet truck amongst other names.
Regardless of how you refer to your pallet truck, its operational is still the same. Each truck has a manual, 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 forks raise bringing the palletised load off the ground. There's a small lever within the handle that when pulled, releases the hydraulic fluid and causes the forks to lower.
Each hand pallet truck uses two sets of wheels to aid in steering and moving. The tandem wheel option we offer allows easier fork entry when loading up the truck with a pallet.
Quick Pallet Truck Delivery
We have a range of modern pump trucks that are manufactured to high European standards. We know that these are essential to many workplaces so we have made sure we have plenty of stocked pallet jacks ready to deliver to our UK mainland customers quickly. We have plenty of next day delivery and 3 working day options.
If your trusty and reliable hand pallet truck has broken, our standard pallet truck can be delivered the next working day to keep your products moving.
Moving pallets safely
When operatives are moving pallets around all day, you need to make sure they are being safe and efficient. This is where the strong construction of our TUFF and Pramac pallet trucks really comes in to it's own. With a max load capacity of 2000kg - 3000kg distributed evenly, these are pump trucks for every warehouse.
Operatives should be checking the weight of the load before moving it with the pallet truck. Although 3000kg is more than enough to move most warehouse items, it's best to check the load weight against the trucks capacity and remove the risk of injury. An easy way to check load weight is to use a pallet truck with scales.
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.
Long Pallet Truck
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
A special purpose range of pallet trucks designed to be compatible with low clearance pallets and disposable pallets which are common in containers that have been loaded by conventional forklifts. With a max load capacity of 2000kg UDL, the low profile pallet truck doesn't compromise on performance.
Mini Pallet Truck
If you don't have lots of space, or need a solution that will fit on your delivery vehicle with ease, the Mini pallet truck is for you. Designed to be ultra portable compared to standard pallet trucks, they are ideal for throwing in the back of your van or lorry so that you can easily move pallets around at the other end of the delivery journey
