Today we cannot imagine material handling on the shop floor without equipment like pallet jacks. These machines save labor costs and also reduce the risk to the operator involved.
Pallet jacks or pallet trucks are used to move materials, especially pallets, from one place to another. They can be broadly classified into two types: manually operated and electrically operated. Their capacities are also classified in two types: less than 5500 lbs and over 5500 lbs.
