Caterpillar Order Picker Forklifts
Turret trucks and reach trucks are normally used to handle palletized loads while order pickers are made more to handle individual items or cases. Sometimes, order pickers are also called stock pickers or order selectors. The machine has a platform on which the operator stands. The order picker lifts the operator along with the forks so that he or she can pick stuff from the shelves and put them onto a pallet on the forks. The equipment could move forward while in an elevated position. Wire guidance systems are offered.
Order pickers come with certain travel and lift speeds, fork size, weight limit and reach limitations. The majority have a fork size designed to load an average pallet, no more than around 1.5 meters long. The higher travel and lift speed helps improve production, but training is essential to prevent accidents. Personnel must be trained on the specific type of unit they would be using.
Low Lift Pallet Jacks
Non-powered pallet trucks
If you want a less expensive option then you can utilize non-powered pallet trucks. These simple lift trucks are also called hand pallet jacks and hand pallet trucks. These kinds of trucks use a hydraulic mechanism to lift pallets just several centimeters above the ground. The person operating it pulls the load using the handle of the truck.
Electric-powered pallet trucks
Electric-powered pallet trucks are quite inexpensive and built for easy maneuvering. The size of the fork could hold two to three pallets. These trucks are available in two types: the "rider" includes a platform wherein the operator rides in a standing position; the "walkie" kind is designed to be operated while the operator walks next to it. These kinds of trucks are commonly found within warehouses, with operators order picking as they move down the aisles. Both non-powered and powered pallet trucks are categorized as ITA Class 3.
