Definition: What is a Electric Pallet Jack?

Equipment used for low-level lifting and moving pallets is known as powered pallet jacks. They are also called electric pallet trucks, walkies, single- or double-pallet jacks, or power jacks. Some powered pallet jacks contain a platform for the operator to stand on while moving pallets.
They are used to move palletized products from one area to another with relative ease.
Used in warehouses, manufacturing plants and storage facilities, pallet jacks are some of the most common and important pieces of equipment in the material handling industry.
A pallet jack’s front wheels are mounted inside the end of the forks. As the hydraulic jack is raised, the forks are separated vertically from the front wheels. That forces the load upward until it clears the floor. The pallet is only lifted enough to clear the floor for subsequent travel.
Operators generally use a throttle on the handle to move forward or in reverse. The steering is done by swinging the handle in the intended direction.
To stop the machine, operators use “plugging.” It allows them to turn the throttle from forward to reverse (or vice-versa) to slow and stop the machine.
To apply the brake, the operator must allow the handle to spring back to the upright position or hold it down to the lowest position.
