A manual pallet jack, also known as a hand pallet truck or hand truck, is a simple yet effective tool used to move pallets of goods in a warehouse, factory, or retail environment. It consists of a set of forks that can be slid under a pallet, a hydraulic lifting mechanism, and a handle for steering and maneuvering the jack.
Using a manual pallet jack is relatively straightforward. The operator slides the forks under the pallet and then pumps the handle up and down to raise the pallet off the ground. Once the pallet is lifted, the operator can steer the pallet jack to the desired location and lower the pallet by releasing the hydraulic valve.
Order picker forklifts utilize a platform that raises with the forks for the operator to stand on. The platform raises the operator into the air, so they can pick or stock with better accuracy. The platform also doubles as a picking/stocking platform while being utilized as the operator’s driving cab. An order picker is a great machine for a warehouse or distribution center that’s trying to find inventory in a time-effective manner. They allow you to skip the tedious and time-consuming process of loading and unloading heavy pallets as you would have to with a forklift.
Confidently carry heavy products across long distances with a used order picker forklift. ASI has used order picker forklifts in a variety of styles from different manufacturers including Raymond and Crown. Each used forklift is inspected prior to shipment.
The forks are integrated with the platform, and there are safety features that prevent the operator from moving the order picker while picking products. Often this is a dead man’s switch, which cuts the power if the operator has not activated it. There are also safety harnesses that keep the operator safe while working on the platform.
