Benefits of Electric Walkies

Benefits of Electric Walkies

One benefit of electric pallet jacks is their ability to cover huge distances in a short period of time. When warehouse workers need to haul inventory pallets across a large warehouse, motorization allows the operator to ride on the jack while transporting loads quickly from one place to another. Because of electric pallet jack efficiency, employee productivity is also increased.

Because of an electric pallet jack’s size and easy maneuverability, a rider pallet jack can easily ride through each warehouse aisle, making the process of picking up orders simpler and more efficient. While traditional forklifts handle most heavy lifting jobs in a warehouse, rider pallet jacks are a cost-effective alternative. Small businesses often use electric pallet jacks to transport small pallets of products to delivery trucks; from storage facilities; or from warehouses to main retail floors.

Another benefit of rider pallet jacks for operators is the unobstructed view of what’s in front. This makes locating and retrieving a specific pallet of goods in a warehouse faster. Good visibility significantly reduces accidents.

Fits Your Budget

If stacking product is not a requirement, an electric pallet jack may fit the needs of your application. On average, it offers a savings of 65% compared to a similar capacity sit-down forklift.

Reduces your hand pallet jack fleet.

Purchasing one electric pallet jack can replace several hand pallet trucks. While hand pallet jacks are inexpensive in initial cost, the lost productivity can easily justify a powered pallet jack.

Uses Electric Power

The use of electric power versus internal combustion powered forklifts offers the advantages of quieter operation and lack of fumes. This can be especially important if your operator is moving product in an enclosed area. Electric product also has lower operating and maintenance expenses when compared to internal combustion forklifts.

Better Ergonomics

Having the product lifted and propelled by a powered motor instead of the operator reduces the back strain and fatigue experienced by operators of hand pallet trucks. Your company may experience a reduction of reported injuries.
