Description

The Vestil PM5-2748-S-G 304 galvanized steel pallet truck has a handle, two forks, and nylon wheels, and can be used to lift and transport pallets in wet or corrosive environments. This pallet jack is made of galvanized steel, which is resistant to wear, rust, and corrosion. The handle allows the user to jack up the forks and maneuver the pallet truck, and it swivels to provide a 180-degree turning radius. A trigger on the handle releases and lowers the forks. The wheels are made of nylon to support heavy loads and help prevent marks or scratches to floors. Push rods allow the height of each fork to be adjusted in case of an imbalance. This pallet truck has a load capacity of 5,500 lb., weighs 327 lb., and measures 27 x 48 inches (W x D). (W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.) It has a service range of 2-7/8 to 7-3/4 inches high. This product is intended for use in professional and industrial environments.

Pallet trucks, also known as pallet jacks, skid jacks, and pump trucks, are used to lift and transport pallets or skids of goods. Pallet trucks can include a swivel pump handle, a squeeze trigger, two forks, and wheels for maneuverability, and typically contain a hydraulic cylinder or a battery-powered motor to raise and lower the forks. Some pallet trucks have an adjustable push rod on the bottom of each fork, allowing the user to modify the height. Pallet trucks can be used in warehouses, storerooms, shipping facilities, and a variety of industrial environments.
