Caterpillar Order Picker Forklifts
Order pickers are designed to handle individual cases or items, whereas turret trucks and reach trucks are utilized for handling palletized loads. Sometimes, order pickers are also called order selectors or stock pickers. The machine includes a platform on which the person who is operating it stands. The order picker lifts the operator together with the forks so that he or she could pick things from the shelves and put them onto a pallet on the forks. The equipment can move forward whilst in an elevated position. Wire guidance systems are available.
Order pickers are available with certain fork size, lift and travel speeds and reach and weight limitations. Most have a fork size designed to load an average pallet, no more than around 1.5 meters long. The higher lift and travel speed helps enhance productivity, but training is necessary to be able to prevent accidents. Employees should be trained on the specific kind of unit they would be utilizing.
Low Lift Pallet Jacks
Non-powered pallet trucks
Non-powered pallet trucks are a less pricey choice. These simple lift trucks are also referred to as hand pallet jacks and hand pallet trucks. These trucks use a hydraulic mechanism in order to lift pallets just a few centimeters off the ground. The person operating it pulls the load using the truck handle.
Electric-powered pallet trucks
Electric-powered pallet trucks are somewhat cheap and built for easy maneuvering. The size of the fork could hold two or three pallets. These trucks come in two kinds: the "walkie" kind is meant to be operated while the operator walks next to it; the "rider" has a platform on which the operator rides in a standing position. These types of trucks are usually found in warehouses, with operators order picking as they move down the aisles. Both powered and non-powered pallet trucks are categorized as ITA Class 3.
