Different Types of Trucks
Pallet trucks come in different sizes and shapes, and all have distinguishing features. The simplest version is the hand pallet truck. When choosing the right one, your first and main consideration is to find out how heavy the load is that you’ll need to move. This will dictate what capacity pallet jack you need. The next step is to select the fork dimensions required.
An electric pallet truck is ideal for moving palleted items over medium to long distances on even surfaces, or for reducing the strain on employees using manual pallet trucks regularly throughout the day. Selecting the right electric pump truck is very much dependent on the weight of the load you are moving and how frequently and far you are driving it. Be sure to choose a pallet jack with a load capacity to suit the maximum weight you need to move.
