Nylon Pallet Jack Wheels

However, these wheels may leave a stain on the floors and have a louder noise while moving.
Nylon pallet jack wheels are more durable and are more resistant to external factors.

These don’t leave a mark and also are not as loud as nylon pallet jack wheels.
However, the most significant disadvantage is that they won’t survive rough conditions and may break down after a couple of times.
The best choice may be to have two kinds of jack: the one with nylon wheels and other polyurethane wheels.
However, not everyone can afford two pallet jacks at the beginning.
So you need to understand which one suits the needs of your warehouse. If you don’t mind the noise and strain, then you can choose the nylon one.
However, if you are going to use it in retail and don’t want your customers to see marks on the floor or hear noises, you may choose the polyurethane pallet jack wheels.
