Pallet Stackers

A pallet stacker is a variety of pallet jack that is utilized to transport, stack and haul palletized produce that are overly difficult for manual lifting. Its main purpose is to load and unload pallets on trucks, as well as transferring pallets to and from various places within a storeroom space or warehouse. On the whole pallet stackers are made of heavy duty materials to endure extreme weights. Pallet stackers are often referred to as pallet jacks. They can be operated from a seated, upright or walk-behind position. Pallet stackers are separated into manual and powered types.

Certain basic parts comprise the pallet jack. There are forks that slide underneath a pallet, capable of moving and lifting it to a preferred height. The engine compartment or casing houses the gas-run, electronic or hydraulic apparatus that powers the piece of equipment.

Normally, pallet jacks come in walk-behind designs that are hand-powered. This means that they are moved by pushing and pulling the jack into its desired location, while raising the heavy pallets can be operated hydraulically making this job a lot easier. Using a foot pedal or lever raises the stackerÔ??s forks. Squeezing a lever or trigger returns the forks to the ground. These designs of pallet jacks are perfect for lighter loads of up to approximately 1 ton or 907.18 kg.

Most jacks can accommodate the raising of extreme weights to around 5 tons with both the gas or electric versions. They are physically less demanding to control than the labor-intensive versions due to the hydraulic power that hoists and lowers the forks. These versions are steered by turning the handle in a particular direction. There is a button on the knob that operates to raise and lower the forks. A throttle found on the stackerÔ??s handle moves the device forward and in reverse. This variety of equipment is generally known as a forklift and is used from a sit-down position.

As the fork width, load limit and lift height differ dramatically between specific versions, selecting the correct pallet stacker to suit the job is essential. Some stackerÔ??s lift height may tolerate multiple pallets to be stacked, while others might only allow two at a time. Certain designs of these forklifts feature an adaptable fork so as to allow the jack to slide beneath pallets of unusual sizes and shapes. Multiple fork models might be fairly effective when different varieties of pallets are being utilized in the same stockroom.
