Models for heavier loads include special turntables with large bearings to ensure ease of movement. We also supple load moving skates with tracks instead of wheels, also known as caterpillar skates.
We can also supply an excellent range of scissor lift tables in both manual and electric formats; these are perfect for the regular movement of loads throughout warehouses, factories and production plants.
Pallet truck optionsPalletised goods can be tricky to manoeuvre, especially if you want to avoid using heavy equipment due to the amount of space available, or for simple reasons of practicality. With a pallet truck to hand you will have ample opportunity to shift cargo efficiently and our line up includes models from big brands including Pfaff.
There are plenty of payload capacities found throughout this range, with some light duty pallet trucks providing up to 300kg of WLL, while others can offer more than 3 tonnes of capacity to play with.
Manually handled pallet trucks are the most affordable on our site but as mentioned earlier you can find higher end devices that provide powered operation to take the strain out of shifting larger loads.
Scissor lift table line upCombining manoeuvrability with strength, our scissor lift tables make sense in various commercial contexts, especially when manufacturing workloads need to be managed in a flexible, productive way.
Once again you need to look carefully at the capacity of the scissor lift table you are considering before you order, since some models offer a few hundred kilos of WLL while others have several tonnes. Brands like Ace are available in this category, so the quality is second to none. We import and supply equipment from international sellers to make sure that customers in the UK have the widest array of choice, as well as the best prices at their disposal.
