What are pallet trucks?

Pallet trucks are essentially small forklifts used to move pallets around a warehouse, from back of lorry and general running pallets around.  They only raise the load enough to clear the ground so that they can be moved around. Other names for Pallet trucks include Pallet Jacks and Pump Trucks.

See below for more information about our range of pallet trucks. If you want to talk to us, call us on 020 8880 3322.

Different types of pallet trucks

We offer a host of pallet trucks, from CAT genuine items to EU manufactured cheaper alternatives.  Standard pallet trucks, galvanised and stainless trucks for wet, corrosive environments and even pallet trucks with scales for weighing loads.  These types of trucks are generally manual and require the operator to move loads, electric versions are also available on request.  With a host of options including nylon and rubber wheels, euro and cheap sizes a pallet truck is a stable workhorse in any environment.

Introducing our new CAT pallet truck:

This truck has caused a huge stir in the UK market following its release and has been designed with the Health and Safety of the operator in mind.

CAT have really have gone to great lengths here to give the operator a strain free experience. The handle on the truck provides the inertia that takes the strain out of pulling or pushing for the operator. The result of this is a happy operator who is more productive and as a result, lot less prone to back injury.

Cat have re-designed the wheel by replacing the existing plastic solution with a metal wheel, which has a polyurethane skin bounded to it. This gives the whole wheel rigidity, safety for use and reduces failure when hitting hard or sharp rises in surfaces.
