Hand Pallet jack also known as Hand Pallet Truck is used in every warehouse, manufacturing plant, job site and retail store. Hand Pallet Trucks are perhaps the most common tool found in the supply chain.
The most common item moved on a hand pallet jack is obviously pallets, like spill pallet, steel pallet, wooden pallet, plastic pallet, paper pallet. While in the Asia marketplace the 48”d x 40”w is normally used there are a number of other sizes to be considered when choosing width and fork length of your hand pallet truck / hand pallet jack.
A pallet jack, also known as a pallet truck, pallet pump, pump truck, scooter, dog, or jigger is a tool used to lift and move pallets. Pallet jacks are the most basic form of a forklift and are intended to move pallets within a warehouse.
The jack is steered by a ‘tiller‘ like lever that also acts as the pump handle for raising the jack. A small handle on the tiller releases the hydraulic fluid, causing the forks to lower. The front wheels inside the end of the forks are mounted on levers attached to linkages that go to levers attached to the jack cylinder.
As the hydraulic jack at the ’tiller’ end is raised, the links force the wheels down, raising the forks vertically above the front wheels, raising the load upward until it clears the floor. The pallet is only lifted enough to clear the floor for subsequent travel.
Oftentimes, pallet jacks are used to move and organize pallets inside a trailer, especially when there is no forklift truck access or availability.
A jack typically has steering wheels in the front, while each fork usually has either a single wheel or two bogie wheels.
There are manual type & Powered type of hand jack.
A manual pallet jack is a hand-powered jack most commonly seen in retail and personal warehousing operations. They are used predominantly for lifting, lowering and steering pallets from one place to another.
The powered pallet jack is generally moved by a throttle on the handle to move forward or in reverse and steered by swinging the handle in the intended direction. Some contain a type of dead man’s switch rather than a brake to stop the machine should the user need to stop quickly or leave the machine while it is in use.
Others use a system known as “plugging” wherein the driver turns the throttle from forward to reverse (or vice versa) to slow and stop the machine, as the dead man’s switch is used in emergencies only.
