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 takes up very little space.
This equipment is ideal in almost all sorts of applications, though it is most commonly used for loading and unloading and low-level order picking in production lines.
Singapore Forklifts is a reliable supplier of manual and electric pallet jacks. We also provide rental services depending on your needs!
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.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a pallet jack and a forklift?
- Load capacity
Forklifts are much larger and bulkier than pallet jacks. Hence, they are also able to lift larger and heavier loads.
- Load movement
Forklifts are capable of moving loads vertically onto high shelves and horizontally across warehouses and other spaces. However, pallet jacks are only able to transport loads horizontally.
Certain forklifts can operate on rough terrains. On the other hand, pallet jacks are only able to operate on smooth terrains.
What is the difference between a pallet jack and pallet truck?
Both pallet jacks and pallet trucks offer similar functions. However, they do have certain differences:
- Pallet jacks are manually pushed or pulled while pallet trucks are powered electrically
- Pallet jacks are typically more affordable than pallet trucks
- Pallet jacks are easier to maintain and operate as compared to pallet trucks
