Heavy Load Moving Skates

Moving exceptionally heavy loads can be a tricky task, not to mention a potentially dangerous one. If you attempt to move a weighty item without the proper equipment, you may end up injuring yourself in any number of different ways - the strain on your body could result in a lifelong musculoskeletal disorder, or (in the worst-case scenario) the load might tip over and land on top of you.

Fortunately, we at PalleTrucks-Trolleys.com stock plenty of heavy-duty load moving products that are well-suited to shifting large, unwieldy items. These include:

  • Machinery Moving Skates - These ultra-sturdy skate sets feature robust polyurethane wheels that glide smoothly along the floor even when they're supporting a piece of equipment that weighs several tonnes. The skates are cleverly designed to spread the load evenly for optimum stability - simply use a roller crow bar to lift up the load in question and slide the skates underneath. Many of our skate sets come with handy steering bars included. Weight capacity ranges from 2 to 100 tonnes.

  • Caterpillar Skates - These skates are made of steel, giving you a superbly hard-wearing solution for transporting heavy goods across firm floor surfaces. Weight capacity ranges from 20 to 60 tonnes, and each caterpillar skate set comes with its own draw bar included.

All of these items are available to buy from our online store, and most are also available to hire from any of our depots across the UK. If you need a bespoke load moving solution that goes beyond the items sold on our website, please don't hesitate to contact us in order to discuss your requirements.

When it comes to choosing between an electric powered pallet truck and a manual pallet truck, it may seem like the easy answer is the electric option. However, to choose between these two options is actually harder than it seems, as it depends on what exactly you need your pallet truck for. There are pros and cons to both options, so we've put together this handy list for you to help make your decision. 

Electric Powered Pallet Truck

 
1.5 Tonne Electic Hand Pallet Truck 540mm x 1150mm
 
Electric Powered Pallet Trucks do all of the hard work of a manual pallet truck, but without the hard work on your part. In fact, some of the larger electric powered pallet trucks are big enough to allow you to stand on the machine with the pallets, meaning your electric powered pallet truck can whiz you around the warehouse with it. 

Pros

  • They are easier for the operator to control and are less likely to cause any strain related injuries. 
  • Electric powered pallet trucks allow workers to move around the workplace at a quicker pace, saving the company time.
  • Operating an electric powered pallet truck is less tiring than operating a manual pallet truck and so, requires a smaller amount of breaks as it is less strenuous. 

Cons

  • Operating an electric powered pallet truck requires more training than its manual counterpart. 
  • Electric powered pallet trucks tend to suffer more maintenance issues and cost more to buy initially. However, as the electric powered pallet truck increases the efficiency of the workplace, this can help you gain your money back. 

Manual Pallet Truck

2500kg Hand Pallet Pallet Pump Truck 540 x 1150mm

 
Manual pallet trucks are usually readily available in any warehouse environment, due to their durable and sustainable nature. Perfect for lifting, lowering or steering pallets, manual pallet trucks have been an essential item for years. 

Pros 

  • Manual pallet trucks are traditionally cheaper to buy than electric powered pallet trucks. 
  • They are very versatile and can handle all kinds of pallets.
  • They are usually less maintenance and easier to repair than electric powered pallet trucks. 
  • They are known to be highly reliable and durable. 

Cons

  • They are more strenuous to use and can cause more injuries.
  • Manual pallet trucks are harder to operate due to their manual aspect.
