Pedestrian pallet trucks are widely used in several different sectors including manufacturing and warehousing. These tools play a vital role in helping to move pallets at ground level and are a low-cost solution that many businesses employ.
Powered pallet trucks are either pedestrian operated, where the operator walks with the truck or a rider, where the operator sits on it. PPTs are generally used for things like loading and unloading delivery trucks and distributing pallets around a warehouse.
Despite it being a relatively easy machine to operate, it’s important to have appropriate training when using it in a busy area such as a warehouse. The training also helps prevent lower limb injuries.
