What are the main advantages of operating a low-profile pallet truck?

  • A low-profile pallet truck requires minimum working space to move the load.
  • Low profile pallet truck comes in various sizes and models that fit multiple works of lifting and moving goods.
  • Low maintenance cost thus saves money and time. The truck needs only lubrication and wheels inspection.

How do I operate a low-profile pallet truck?

This is how-to operate low pallet truck for effective performance;

  • It comprises a raised, neutral, and lower operating system.
  • To raise forks, push the lever down and pump the handle up and down until the pallet reaches the desired height.
  • Have a clear inch between the floor and pallet for sufficient movement of the load.
  • When moving the load, engage the lever in a neutral/middle position making the handle free for hydraulic resistance and the forks remain in the raised position.
  • Lower the forks by pulling the lever past the neutral position.
  • Do not exceed the load capacity of the manufacturer’s
  • Push the load so that the weight will be carried by the axle and not by the handle.

What are operating instructions for low profile pallet trucks?

  • When operating the truck, the operator has to wear protective shoes/boots.
  • The operating lighting should be at least 50 lux.
  • Never leave the truck with a load. Ensure the load is offloaded before parking the truck.
  • Parking- lower the fork to the lowest position i.e., level ground
  • Lifting- check the load doesn’t exceed the loading capacity of the pallet truck. Roll the pallet forks under the load until the fork rest against it.
  • Lowering and moving- lower the load by shift the operating lever up and releasing the lever. Ensure adequate space for offloading load.
  • Weight capacity- before loading a pallet truck, know the weight capacity of the pallet truck and that of the load.

How do you add hydraulic oil to the pump reservoir for a low profile pallet truck?

  • Lay pallet truck on either side. Position drain plug of the hydraulic cylinder up.
  • Ensure forks are in a lowered position.
  • Remove the screw plug
  • Check the current oil level
  • Add hydraulic oil until the level of oil is at the bottom of the hole.
  • Replace drain plugs, upright the truck

What are the malfunctions and their solutions experienced by a low-profile pallet truck?

  • Oil leakage – caused by cracked or worn-out parts. Replace damaged parts.
  • Lowering of forks without the help of the control lever- caused by hydraulic components being worn out. Inspect and replace the worn-out parts.
  • Forks don’t lower or don’t lower fully. This happens when the fork is left in a raised position for an extended period. This in turn leads to the piston rod becoming rusty. Keep the fork in the lowest position when not in use. The lubrication of the piston rod is also key.
  • Forks don’t raise or slow raise. A major cause includes heavy load that is above the pallet capacity weight. Ensure the truck carriers or lift capacity weight. Another cause is low temperature making it difficult for oil pumps. Ensure the truck operates in a warm environment.

What is the importance of the CE labeling on low profile pallet trucks from manufacturers?

CE label on the product indicates that the manufactured product is assessed by the manufacturer and meets EU safety, health, and environmental standards.

The CE declaration of conformity must be carefully stored and made available to the responsible authorities.

  • Lift height. measure out all the applicable heights before you go shopping for a rental lift truck.
  • the superior the lift truck or its specialized functionalities, the more you will pay. You also should consider operational costs, since while you are spared maintenance costs you have to factor in costs like fueling the truck.
  • Rental period. The duration of work determines the rental option to pick.
  • Insurance cover. In most rental agencies, the insurance part is left to be catered by the operator. Understand the terms of rental services.

Does one incur other costs from rental agencies for low profile pallet trucks?
