Pallet/Stacker Truck Training, Rider & Pedestrian

Powered Pallet/Stacker Trucks Rider and Pedestrian

Powered pallet trucks operate to a very similar principle as hand pallet trucks. The operator slides the forks into the pallet to allow for load bearing. On a powered pallet truck however, the lifting of the load, and truck movement, is powered by the electric motor within the machine.Typically, there is a paddle control to select forward or reverse direction, and button control to raise or lower the forks. As with all electric powered trucks, the batteries contained within need to be charged. Often, with a powered pallet truck, the truck has an integral charger meaning that it can be plugged straight into the mains without the need for a stand-alone charger.Powered pallet trucks operate best on flat and smooth surfaces.
