Pallet Stackers can be used by anyone. Unlike fork trucks they do not require workers special training or a special license for use. Warehouses use them to load and unload pallets for transport and to stack pallets at heights up to 7 feet.
Manually driven stackers are designed for maximum power savings and ergonomics. The unit is manually propelled, but it is powered up and down. The motor is used only for lifting pallets, while the hydraulic system gently lowers them into place without using the motor. The machine’s design makes it so easy to maneuver that a single user can safely and accurately maneuver it in a small, enclosed space.
Pallet stackers make it easier to manipulate pallets that are stored on workstations. The machine can access the edge of the station, retrieve the pallet, and maneuver it to loading docks, pallet racks, or other storage areas at will. The wheels are steered by the handle, making precise maneuvers possible even in the tightest of spaces
The handle is spring loaded and will remain in an upright position when the forks are moved into the pallet. A push button control activates the motor which lifts the pallet. No other action is required on the part of the user. This design makes lifting loads of up to 3,000 pounds an effortless exercise. This feature alone is just one of the many ergonomic advantages that industrial stackers provide.
The unit can be further secured by means of a hand break located toward the top of the assembly. This keeps the device stable even when the unit is loaded to full capacity. Another feature the unit is the ability to adjust the lateral force applied to the pallets. Both the forks and the outriggers can be adjusted to fit the width of the pallets. This allows the forks to grip the pallet within, and the outriggers to grip them from without.
Using pallet stackers, pallets of any size and load can be safely elevated and moved to storage areas, work stations, or loading docks. The ergonomics of their design and the ease of their maneuverability make them an asset to the process flow of any warehouse, large or small.
