Hand Pallet truck

A hand pallet truck, also known as a pallet jack or pump truck, is a simple device that makes it possible to transport one or more pallets without the use of a forklift or other heavy equipment. It is a wheeled trolley designed to lift and transport pallets. The truck's tapered forks slot underneath the pallet and the pump handle can then be used to raise and lower the load. Hand pallet trucks are commonly seen in warehouses, stockrooms, and other environments where wooden pallets are frequently used. They are also used in manufacturing plants, distribution centers, and other industrial settings.

Warehouse Forklift

The warehouse forklift is the most recognizable type of lift truck. It resembles a golf cart with twin forks extending from the front. You'll most often use this forklift in a facility with many items in inventory, as it's great for loading and unloading pallets and transporting items to and from delivery vehicles. Most industrial forklifts can lift 5,000 pounds of weight, but some heavy-duty models are capable of elevating up to 25,000 pounds. Warehouse forklifts have a few subtypes, including side loaders and counterbalance forklifts.
Key Feature: Trucks have a loading capacity of 1-5 tons
Uses: Best for raising and transporting items over short distances

Side Loader

A subtype of the warehouse forklift, side loaders are usually found in steel service centers and manufacturing facilities with heavy and bulky items. The operator stands in a sideways compartment while a side loader unloads objects. Due to its sideways operation, side load forklifts can easily drive up alongside racks and load and unload without having to turn. This makes them suitable for navigating narrow aisles and handling long loads like timber and pipes.
Key Feature: Sideways compartment that moves in the direction of the load
Uses: Lifting heavy and long items like pipes and timber

Counterbalance Forklift

The counterbalance forklift is a popular lift that features forks in the front and a weight in the back to counterbalance the weight of the load. Counterbalance forklifts have no extending arms, giving them the ability to move directly to the load. There are a few different types of counterbalance forklifts. The 3-wheel variant is ideal for situations requiring the operator to turn and maneuver in circles. The stand-up counterbalance forklift allows operators to easily hop on and off between loads.
Key Feature: Back-mounted weight that helps balance loads
Uses: Situations where circle maneuvering is necessary

Heavy-Duty Forklift

The heavy-duty forklift - also called a large capacity forklift - combines the functionalities of a warehouse forklift with a telehandler. While it can't reach difficult angles the way a telehandler can, it is capable of lifting heavier loads much higher off the ground than a warehouse forklift. The heavy-duty forklift starts with a 30,000-lb maximum lift, but you should only need such power on specialized jobs. This makes it narrow in scope compared to the telehandler and warehouse forklift.
Key Feature: Hydraulic levers combine a balance of reach and power
Uses: Transporting heavy loads for industrial applications

Pallet Jack

Pallet jacks are specialized in nature. Also known as pump trucks, these forklifts aren't capable of lifting large loads due to their small size. In exchange for power, pallet jacks have a small footprint, allowing them to fit into the tightest spaces and lift small loads in tight quarters. While you sacrifice power and maneuverability, a pallet jack's acquisition and renting costs are much lower.
Key Feature: Compact size, powered manually or with a battery
Uses: Maneuvering pallets in tight spaces and over long distances

Walkie Stacker

Walkie stackers are unique in appearance and specific in utility. Unlike other forklifts, these types of material handling vehicles don't have cabs. Instead, the operator walks behind the stacker and steers it by using an attached handle. These units lack power, maneuverability and speed but are ideal for situations where you need a taller pallet jack. The walkie stacker reaches much higher off the ground than traditional pallet jacks.
Key Feature: Unique design requires the operator to walk behind the truck
Uses: Maneuvering pallets to greater heights than is possible with a pallet jack

Order Picker

An order picker is a subtype of the walkie stacker, used to pick and deliver materials from storage. Reaching heights of up to 32 feet, these machines are designed to lift operators up to warehouse racks and carry individual units. They excel in customer order warehouses and storage facilities since they can pick individual units without having to bring down full pallets. Their versatile design means they can handle items of various sizes, from auto parts to furniture.
Key Feature: Open operator window and no pallet handling
Uses: Piece-picking units and warehouse inventory applications

Reach Fork Truck

The reach forklift is a warehouse truck used mainly for indoor work. Its key ability is to extend its forks beyond the compartment and reach into warehouse racks in a way that standard forklifts cannot. It also features an open compartment that allows the operator to have greater visibility. While excellent for indoor use, reach trucks are not suitable for outdoor work due to their minimal undercarriage clearance.
Key Feature: Stabilizing legs and forward extending forks
Uses: Quick and precise pallet picking in indoor environments
