Motorized Pallet Truck
A Motorized Pallet Truck often goes by other names including: Walkie-Rider, Rider or Walkie. These pieces of equipment are essentially a motorized type of a pallet jack. They come in both "Rider" versions as well as "Walkie" models.
The walkie type as the name implies, is made to allow the operator to walk alongside the machine while they pick up and move loads. The operator stands on a small platform on the Rider model. The rider models are great for frequent moving of cargo over extended distances in manufacturing applications and warehouses. They are really fast and maneuverable.
It is vital to remember that there is no safety cage on this model and thus, it is not recommended to move unstable or tall loads utilizing these machines. A rider can be the best answer if you are looking for an inexpensive method for moving loads from one place to another. If though, you should transport heavy loads short distances, and prefer to utilize a more employee-friendly unit rather than a pallet jack, the walkie model can be the best alternative.
An Order Selector also goes by the name of Order picker. This machinery is particularly made for manual handling of less-than-pallet-load quantities in racking. There are fixed forks attached to a platform in the Man-up design. This particular platform elevates both the operator and the load in order to facilitate manual unloading and loading from racking areas.
Order Selectors are normally very narrow aisle vehicles that could operate in aisles of less than six feet. They are really handy pieces of machine in physical inventories as well as in cycle counting situations. Order selectors are available in lift heights up to 40 feet high, though models that range in the 20 to 30 foot range are a lot more common.
