Choosing Quality Manual Pallet Jacks

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017 Published By: Roy Williams

Choosing Quality Manual Pallet JacksPallet jacks are some of the most common tools found in the supply chain.  Finding out after you buy that your new pallet jack is leaking hydraulic fluid and is already out of warranty only causes frustration and despair.  When selecting a pallet jack, look for premium steer wheels and load rollers that will protect your floor and carry the load easily. Also look for a 2 year warranty on the hydraulic unit and most important, look for a trusted source. There are many brands and prices to choose from and selecting a quality pallet jack should provide for many years of service with very little maintenance.

Shopping for Value and Quality

Price shopping is important to the bottom line, however, so is value and quality shopping.  In looking at the variety and availability of pallet jacks, one will find the premium brands and a larger selection of the best value or economy brands. Many pallet jacks are imported, and some are meant to last only a short period of time.  Staying away from a throw away pallet jack is usually the best course of action as the hassle of frequent replacement purchasing is truly more costly.

Pallet Jacks Available in the Most Popular Sizes

Standard pallet jacks, or the most popular size, is the 27 inch wide with 48 inch long forks that carry 5,500 lbs.  These stocked pallet jacks are always available at Casters of Amarillo, Inc. along with other sizes that will provide varying fork lengths and widths.  We also provide low profile pallet jacks as well as four way entry pallet jacks.  Ask yourself, “What do I need in a quality jack?”  Most end users will say that dependability is most important.  Casters of Amarillo, Inc. only stocks quality pallet jacks that will give you the performance and reliability that you expected.
