Hand Pallet Truck Knowledgebase
Which Hand Pallet Truck do I require?
Hand Pallet Trucks are available in a huge variety of different length and width combinations, which makes choosing the correct specification for your task a difficult proposition. The huge range available allows BT to provide an option for every requirement but can be quite overwhelming.
The first item to consider when in the market for a hand pallet truck is the type of pallets being used, for the UK market there is two common types the CHEP UK pallet and the Euro pallet. If all movements will be with a uniform pallet type the best decision is to choose fork dimensions 685x1000mm for CHEP pallet use and 520x1150mm for Euro pallet use.
However if your requirement has a mixture of different pallets to move the decision becomes a little more difficult. If the majority of work is uniform both options can accomodate moderate use with the other pallet. The dimensions we would recommend when working with both pallets would be 520x1000mm which will allow entry from all sides of the pallet with no fork overhang.
How do I secure a Hand Pallet Truck in a moving vehicle?
There are many tried and tested methods for securing a hand pallet truck in a moving vehicle, tensioning within a pallet is a popular option with a full load but what happens when the load is half full, empty or the truck works itself loose. The potential for damage to vehicle and goods is high with this method of securing and with many others.
