Electric Pallet trucks are widely used in industry when pallets and goods need to be moved over longer distances around warehouses and factories. Basically they all do the same job as a hand pallet truck namely lifting pallets up from the floor position to then be moved around but the addition of an electric motor provides the propulsion of the truck without hand push operation being required. Electric Pallet trucks start with a capacity of 1000kg but can be increased according to model up to 5000kg. There are many different standard fork sizes available from a length of 600mm up to 1220mm and with an overall width of 450mm up to 685mm. In addition special fork sizes can also be made to suit applications where different sizes of forks are required. The pallet truck operates by the use of a battery pack that is rechargeable by plugging its charger into a normal power point. The pump operates to raise the forks up to a height of 200mm thus lifting the pallet clear of the ground. The pallet truck can also be used to lift other items or transport boxes and equipment as well. There are a variety of wheel options available to suit all applications but the most popular types are nylon rubber or polyurethane. There are also variations on the finishes that are available. The standard models are epoxy painted but we also supply models that are galvanised or made entirely from stainless steel for use in corrosive environments. Traditionally the electric pallet truck moves both wooden and plastic pallets. There are a number of operator options available like ride on platforms protection cabs and various other safety features. We are also able to supply a semi electric truck whereby the load is lifted electrically but the movement of the truck is controlled by hand operation.
