With so many different varieties of lifting equipment available, have you ever wondered whether your company should get a pallet jack or a forklift? Both are trusty and reliable pieces of equipment which will help you get the job done, but what are the pros and cons of both? 

Today we're comparing Pallet Jacks vs Forklifts and taking a look at who comes out on top. 

The Pallet Jack Pros and Cons

Pros

Though this humble pallet jack may not look like much, it can provide multiple benefits and increase efficiency in any warehouse. 

  • The Pallet Jacks in our range can transport loads up to a large 5000kg
  • They are very durable. Most Pallet Jacks in our range also come with a 12-month warranty too. 
  • They can be operated easily by one person. 
  • The handle makes them easy to maneuver
  • They have polyurethane tires which make them exceptionally hard wearing
  • Electric pallet jacks are also available, which makes transporting items easier. 
  • Pallet Jacks tend to cost less than Forklifts. 

Cons

  • Pallet jacks do not typically have as much lifting power as a forklift.
  • They are mainly manual, meaning they may not be able to transport goods as far.
  • They cannot lift loads to the same height as a forklift. 

Forklift Pros and Cons

Forklifts are fantastic pieces of equipment for lifting heavy materials to a height. 

Pros

  • Typically the Forklift can lift more weight than a Pallet Jack. 
  • Forklifts can lift items like bulk bags and drums with different forklift attachments
  • Forklifts can even be fitted with a platform to lift workers. 
  • They are mostly electric which takes less man power than manual. 

Cons

  • Forklifts tend to cost more than Pallet Jacks due to their electrical nature.
  • Forklifts require much more space for storage, whereas a Pallet Jack can be easily folded away. 
  • It requires more maintenance than a manual pallet jack.

 

To help make your decision, you can find out more about our Pallet Jacks and Forklift Attachments here. We hope this breakdown of Pallet Jacks vs Forklifts helped you! If you need any advice, feel free to contact us on 0808 123 69 69. 

Finding the right forklift attachment for the job can be a difficult task. From forklift attachments for drums to forklift attachments for lifting bulk bags, ensuring you select the appropriate equipment is necessary to the job! Using the wrong forklift attachment could result in disastrous consequences, especially when handling sensitive and delicate materials. At PalleTrucks-Trolleys, we have a range of Forklift Attachments that are suitable for a variety of manual handling requirements. 

Therefore, we've put together a handy guide on which forklift attachments are best suited to which jobs and what we have available. 

Forklift Attachments for Drums

It is important for a forklift attachment for drums to stay level and stable when lifting the drum. Drums on industrial sites can contain many different types of substances, with some being potentially hazardous, so keeping the drum stable is in your best interest. Being able to tip the contents of the drum carefully is another important stage, and we have a forklift attachment to fit this requirement too! 

Here's a look at some of the forklift attachment for drums we have in stock:

Forklift Attachments for Lifting Bulk Bags

Lifting a bulk bag is a completely different operation to lifting a drum, and requires a specific forklift attachment to complete this job. Forklifting attachments for lifting bulk bags typically need to be able to carry much more weight than a forklift attachment for drums. They also need to have four points in order to attach the handles of the bulk bag with ease and ensure the security of the load. 

Here's a look at the forklift attachments for lifting bulk bags we have in stock here at PalleTrucks-Trolleys:

Forklift Attachments with Platforms

If you find you need a forklift attachment which will be able to lift you to the height you need, forklift attachments with platforms are the equipment you're looking for. Typically suitable for up to two people, forklift attachments with platforms allow you to work at a height without the need for ladders or scaffolding. Ideal for maintenance and inspection work.

Here are just some of the forklift attachments with platforms we stock:
