Pallet Trucks

A pallet truck, also known as a pallet jack, pallet pump, jigger, dog, or pump truck, is a tool used to lift and move pallets. They are, in essence, the most basic form of a forklift and are intended to move pallets within a warehouse or working environment. The weight of the pallets they can lift depends on the strength of the pallet truck.

Pallet jacks have been noted to be in use from 1918, making it almost a century since they first began helping us move products and goods around warehouses, shop floors, and factories. Early types of pallet trucks lifted the forks and load only by mechanical linkages. More modern types use a hand pumped hydraulic jack to lift.

The Industries of Pallet Trucks

The retail sector in general makes great use of the pallet truck. Due the industry’s constant need to move pallets of products around their storage in shop or distribution warehouse, the pallet truck is an indispensable tool to the retail sector. In other industries, there are often no customers around to have to take into consideration while moving goods, allowing the use of larger and powered means of product movement. In retail, however, the presence of customers means that the shop floor worker must rely on the trust pallet truck to manoeuvre goods through the shop floor.
