The Powered Pallet Truck (PPT) typically work in aisles (sometimes just 2.5 metres) with or without platforms, they can handle one or three pallets at one time for high volume movement of goods.
Correct training is vital for these seemingly simple and yet effective operations for it is well documented that there are higher risks with lower limb injuries. These vehicles play an important part in providing low cost pallet movement. As with all mechanical handling aids, PPT operators must be trained, tested and carry a current certificate of competence.
A Pedestrian Stacker Truck travels in the same way as a traditional Powered Pallet Truck but has the added ability to lift loads to stack in racking at various levels.
A Low Level Order Picker (LLOP) is driven as a rider operated pallet truck but the Operator is lifted in the cab to access low level racking for order picking.
