From large warehouses to small workshops, many businesses rely heavily on hard-wearing and robust pallet trucks to complete their day-to-day operations. They offer not just the ability to complete tasks but facilitate the enhancement, simplification and instilment of high productivity levels with the workforce. Making them an essential piece of equipment to keep businesses operating. For this very reason, it is imperative that when a business decides to order a pallet truck, whether it’s a single truck or a fleet, that they order them with the correct width in mind.

Pallet trucks are used for a number of material handling tasks such as transporting pallets from lorries to warehouses and the shop floor, filling up containers in shipping bays and manoeuvring inventory within stock rooms. So, it is extremely important to know which size pallet truck best suits your needs. The pallet truck width will be determined by the size of the pallet which is most commonly handled by the business and is usually split into three main categories;

  • UK Pallets
  • Euro Pallets
  • Printer’s Pallets

UK Pallets

Typical UK pallets, also known as Blue, GKN or CHEP pallets, measure 1000 x 1200mm and are ideal for pallet trucks that are 680mm wide. The length of the pallet truck’s forks can also be chosen with 1000, 1150 or 1200mm available. 1000mm is the most popular choice due to the increased manoeuvrability of the pallet without the fork sticking out on the opposite side. The larger 1200mm forks are used when pallets are heavier and further support is needed to avoid sagging. The third length of 1150mm is chosen as a compromise between the first two lengths.

Euro Pallets  

The standard Euro pallet measure 800 x 1200mm and are ideal for pallet trucks with a width of 540mm. Extra caution must be placed when ordering pallet trucks if Euro pallets are regularly used as pallet trucks 680mm wide will NOT fit into their narrow sides. If both UK and Euro pallets are used within a business, it is advised that a pallet truck width of 540mm with 1150mm forks is chosen as this is the most universal size and will work with both types of pallets.

Printer’s Pallets

There are a number of pallets that are smaller than the previous two mentioned, such as Printer’s pallets, which are commonly used within the printing industry. These are approximately half the size of the standard Euro pallet and require even narrower forks. A pallet truck width of 450mm and fork length of 1000mm is the most common to use for these types of pallets, however, lengths from 500 – 1200mm are regularly used.

Risk assessments are a process whereby a thorough evaluation is made to identify situations, methods and environments that have the ability to cause harm to individuals. Once these risks have been identified, an analysis and calculation are made on their severity and the measures required to effectively eliminate or control these risks from occurring. When it comes to manual handling and manual handling equipment especially, risk assessments are imperative to keeping workers and working environments safe, creating awareness of potential hazards, determining whether an intervention is necessary and more importantly to meet specific health and safety regulations.

Due to pallet trucks being one of the most common pieces of equipment used for manual handling tasks, we will run through some of the most important factors needed for an effective pallet truck risk assessment.

Performing an effective pallet truck risk assessment

Before tasks involving a pallet truck are conducted, it is advised that a risk assessment is completed to achieve the things listed above. This involves making a suitable assessment of all manual handling operations, which consists of looking into areas such as:

The task

The questions that need to be asked when assessing the task involved with a pallet truck are, do they involve:

  • Long carrying distances?
  • Strenuous pulling or pushing?
  • Unpredictable movement of loads?
  • Insufficient recovery or rest?

The loads

The questions that need to be asked when assessing the loads involved with a pallet truck are if they are:

  • Bulky/unwieldy?
  • Heavy?
  • Unstable/unpredictable
  • Difficult to grasp?

The working environment

The questions that need to be asked when assessing the working environment involved with a pallet truck are if there are:

  • Poor lighting conditions
  • Variations in levels
  • Constraints on posture
  • Poor floor quality
  • Hot/cold conditions

The pallet truck

The most important questions that need to be asked before using a pallet truck concern the pallet truck itself. You need to:

  • Inspect the pallet truck to see if it’s in generally good working condition
  • Check steering, forks, brakes, controls, hydraulics and warning devices (if fitted)
  • Inspect wheels to ensure they are not worn out or have any cracks or damage

Once these areas have been assessed for any potential risks and the appropriate corrective measures have been taken to reduce or eliminate them, the task that involves the pallet truck can safely begin.

What is a Pallet Truck used for?

It’s no secret that we know a thing or two about pallet trucks - we are Palletrucks-Trolleys after all. But just because we are experts doesn’t mean that everyone knows what a pallet truck is used for. That’s exactly why we’ve created this blog post, so you can find out what is a pallet truck used for too! 

So, What is a Pallet Truck Used For?

A pallet truck, which may also be called a pallet jack or a pallet pump is the most basic form of forklift available. They are designed to lift and move pallets and palletised loads, making someone’s job a lot easier. Best suited within a warehouse environment, pallet trucks will actually save you time and effort as they make a task that would take multiple people, a one-man job. This effectively makes everything run a lot smoother!


Pallet trucks are best used for relatively short distances and each pallet truck will have its own weight capacity. It’s important not to overload this weight capacity as pallet trucks are designed to be controlled smoothly and easily, and this can be affected by excess weight.
