Types of Pallet Jacks

Manual Pallet Jack

Suitable for: Narrow aisles or small spaces

Manual pallet jacks are compact equipment that can easily navigate through narrow aisles and spaces. They are equipped with a simple hydraulic jack and the fork is lifted by pumping the handle upwards and downwards.

Electric Walk-Behind

Suitable for: Loading docks

The electric walk-behind is a type of electric pallet jack. It is battery-operated and the operator is not required to manually pull the load or pump the handle. However, they will still be required to walk alongside the machine. The electric walk behind is suitable for loading docks and mid-distance moving.

Rider Pallet Jack

Suitable for: Large warehouses

Rider pallet jacks are similar to electric walk-behinds but have an additional platform for the operator to ride on. This machine is ideal for big warehouses where workers have to transport loads across large areas.

How to Use a Pallet Jack?

If you need to move a heavy load that’s too much to carry by hand, a pallet jack is a great tool. First, make sure your load is well-packed and stable on a pallet, secured with straps or ropes. The pallet is designed with spaces to fit the jack’s forks. Slide the forks into these spaces under the pallet. Then, use the handle on the pallet jack to pump and lift the pallet just off the ground.

This way, you can move heavy items easily without lifting them yourself, which helps avoid injuries to your back, arms, and knees from carrying heavy weights.

FAQs About Pallet Jacks

  • Load Capacity: Forklifts are larger and can handle bigger, heavier loads due to their robust design.
  • Load Movement: Forklifts can lift loads to high shelves and move them across different areas. Pallet jacks are designed to move loads horizontally on the ground.
  • Terrain: Some forklifts are built to operate on uneven ground, while pallet jacks work best on flat, smooth surfaces.

Both pallet jacks and pallet trucks offer similar functions. However, they do have certain differences:

  • Operation: Pallet jacks are manually operated by pushing or pulling, whereas pallet trucks are typically powered electrically.
  • Cost: Pallet jacks are generally less expensive than pallet trucks.
  • Maintenance: Pallet jacks are simpler to maintain and operate.
  • Capacity: Pallet trucks can usually lift heavier loads compared to manual pallet jacks.

It is advisable to push a pallet jack, especially when handling heavier loads, as this reduces physical strain and enhances control. While you can pull a pallet jack, pushing is generally safer and more ergonomic.
