Sitecraft provides an extensive range of manual and electric pallet jacks for many warehousing, manufacturing, and distribution applications. Our pallet jacks and trucks are widely used for the following applications:
Electric pallet jacks are increasingly becoming crucial to vital transportation equipment favoured in large warehouses and fulfilment centres. As such, it’s essential to ensure that all equipment of this nature is utilised properly and safely.
Trolley jacks are one of the most commonly used materials handling devices; however, the safe use of a pallet jack is crucial. Ignoring the supplier’s safe operating instructions can cause the type of manual handling injuries they are designed to help workplaces avoid.
At risk are the operator, those working nearby and even customers and passers-by. Unsafe electric jack use may also introduce new hazards into the workplace, such as collisions with people, obstacles in the workplace, or the falling of heavy loads. Risks to the operator include the potential of crushed feet under the forks or wheels, jammed hands between steering control structures, and a range of musculoskeletal injuries should a heavy-duty trolley jack roll out of control or slip over the edge of an unguarded ramp.
Always read the safety manual, wear safety-toed footwear to prevent injuries, and only operate the equipment you have been trained in and feel confident in using.
Safety is imperative for both manual and powered pallet jacks and trucks.
More common in smaller to medium warehouses and ideal for manoeuvring around tight spaces, Sitecraft are pleased to offer a range of manual pallet jacks and trucks. Also known as “pump trucks”, these pallet jacks are available in manual or battery-powered models to lift and move palletised loads efficiently. The motorised pallet trucks include walking types and ride-on.
The all-new Logimove 1200 features a lithium-ion battery system for enhanced safety and operating capabilities. Injuries from misuse are familiar with manual pallet jacks, as they require heavy pushing or pulling when fully loaded. It is vital that you are trained in operating such equipment before use.
Most operators pull pallet trucks backwards, thinking it is easier to manoeuvre around obstacles. Ergonomists recommend that manual trolley jacks be “pushed” as this technique puts less strain on the body and prevents typical “pulling” injuries from bending the lower back and twisting the upper torso. Pushing also helps to keep the body upright and uses power from leg muscles.
Proper training is crucial to prevent injury. For instance, if the type of pallet jack to be used is powered, it is recommended that operators have a forklift licence or be trained to a reasonable level of competency. Forklifts and electric-powered stackers do similar work, and the risk of injury to the operator and others in the workplace is also reasonably high. Each model may be different and require different levels of operator training.
Employers must ensure workers are given instruction and training so that they can use the equipment safely. Employers must also ensure risks of using the pallet jack are identified and measures put in place to control those risks.
Training techniques can include:
A pre-use inspection: Check all operating controls, moving parts and warning devices. Also, look for fluid leaks and check the general condition of wheels, tyres and forks. Any defects should be reported and the jack tagged as “Out of Service” immediately to avoid injury.
Operational safety procedures and safe operations around loading docks and when travelling through the workplace: Keeping to the working zones and following a planned travel path is essential for avoiding collisions. Operators need a clear view of the path to see other mobile equipment, such as forklifts and workers on foot. Brakes should be applied, and wheels checked when unloading or loading heavy loads at a loading dock. Travel with the load first and keep the jack straight. Loads should always be pushed into tight spaces to prevent the operator from being trapped between walls and the load or jack handle.
Ensuring the load is stable on the pallet: Forks should be under the centre of the load and the pallet. If the load consists of different items, heavy items should be on the bottom layer to help keep the stack stable.
Heavy Duty General Purpose Truck: Our heavy-duty general-purpose truck is built to withstand the rigours of everyday commercial use, making it ideal for a wide range of applications. Boasting a 2500kg load capacity, it’s an outstanding performer in the industry. It also features polyurethane wheels, offering excellent floor protection and noise reduction.
Sitecraft is pleased to provide a range of world-class Logimove pallet jacks to Australian warehouses and industrial businesses.
If you want to prevent injuries and ensure workers don’t experience strain, battery/electric-powered equipment provides an ideal solution. Choose between standard-sized or compact and heavy-duty models for tight applications. The new compact powered model incorporates a power drive and power lift, enabling the effortless movement of heavy pallets in an exceptionally compact package. This helps provide unrivalled manoeuvrability in the tightest of working environments. A powerful 24-volt, 300 watts DC electric motor also ensures superior performance.
For larger workplaces and warehouses where palletised goods must be transported long distances, the Logistic ride-on electric towing tug is an outstanding performer. The weight capacity of our ride-on models is up to 2000 kg.
High Capacity Power Lift Pallet Jack Models: The high capacity model is available in 2500 kg and 5000 kg capacities. These are used for moving weighty loads and items, such as safes and vats. Our high-capacity models also allow for the movement of two heavy pallets together.
