A pallet jack (otherwise known as a ‘walkie’) is a wheeled trolley designed to help move your goods quickly and easily around your warehouse. It is extremely easy to operate and take up very little space.

At Singapore Forklifts, we also have electric pallet jacks to meet your respective needs.

Let us provide you with the best possible quotation for your business needs now!

What are Pallet Jacks?

The pallet jack is ideal in almost all sorts of applications, most commonly used for loading and unloading, low-level order picking in production lines among many others.

If you require forklifts that have the capability to raise and place loads on shelves instead, you can check out our electric stackers.

Advantages of Pallet Jacks

  • Basic but Customisable

    Pallet jacks are the simplest form of forklifts, suitable for a wide range of situations. They can be customised to handle different tasks.

    For instance, you can choose between different fork sizes to fit either standard EPAL/EUR pallets, or CHEP pallets.

  • Easy Operation & Maintenance

    Simple and safe to operate, anyone can learn to use it. Furthermore, pallet jacks require little maintenance, allowing for higher productivity in a safe working environment, with less down time.

  • Affordable

    If you do not need the capability to raise loads for shelving, a pallet jack is one of the most affordable forklifts you can buy. It is basic and extremely durable due to the strong welds and straight-forward construct.

Should You Push or Pull a Pallet Jack?

You can push or pull a pallet jack.

However, when it comes to heavier loads, we recommend that you push them instead. Typically, an average person can push more than he/she can pull. Furthermore, pulling increases physical strain.

Pallet Jacks or Pallet Trucks?

Both pallet jacks and pallet trucks provide the same function with one main difference.

Pallet jacks are manually pushed/pulled while a pallet truck is powered electrically.

Therefore, both offer similar capabilities with different benefits.

  • Easier to operate

Pallet Truck

  • Suitable for heavier loads
