Pallet Truck Buying Guide

If you work in a warehouse or you constantly need to haul heavy items packed on pallets, you definitely need a pallet truck. Pallet trucks or pallet jacks are designed for hauling heavy pallets for short distances inside the warehouse and even outside. Pallet trucks have forks, like a forklift does where the load is attached. When buying a pallet truck, the pallet truck price in Kenya is one of the important factors to consider.

However, you will still have to make decisions on the capacity required, the lift height, wheels, length and construction of the pallet truck. Pallet trucks have different capacities. Getting a pallet truck that has a maximum capacity lower than your loads can cause safety problems to the user and even damage to your goods, the pallet truck or your warehouse. Usually, many pallet trucks are rated 4500 lbs to 5500 lbs. There are also some high capacity models that can hold more than 5500lbs. These however come with a higher pallet truck price in Kenya.

The forks of the pallet truck can be lifted to a certain given height which is called the lift height of the truck. Mostly,many of the pallet trucks can lift the forks a distance of 3" above. Lifting the forks high makes maneuverability of the pallet truck easier especially when you have to move it outside. Care should be taken not to lift the pallet truck too high because they might tend to tip over when due to the heavy load.

The size (length and width) of the pallet truck is the other important consideration to have in mind. The length and width of the forks determines the types of pallets that your pallet truck can and cannot carry. It is essential therefore to ensure that you get the right pallet truck.

How easily the pallet truck moves inside and outside the warehouse depends on the wheels. Buying a pallet truck with the wrong kind of wheels can cause damage to your warehouse or make it hard for you to move your loads from one position to the other. Polyurethane wheels are usually easy to move on many floor types and do not cause damage if you have sensitive floors. It is also important to check the weight of the pallet truck because it adds to the total weight of the load. If the weight of the load and the pallet truck exceeds the recommended for the floor you have, damage is inevitable.

A pallet truck is not a cheap investment to make for your business. However, it is an essential investment that makes work easier and reduces the amount of labor needed in the warehouse.
