Pallet trucks are the primary piece of equipment used in warehouses and other industrial places to transport goods. One thing is for sure, pallet trucks are one of the most used pieces of equipment in industrial settings and when they become damaged it can cause no end of workplace disruption.

The majority of pallet trucks are designed to withstand frequent use, so the likelihood of them malfunctioning all the time is slim. That being said, it's recommended that you spend a little bit of time inspecting and servicing your pallet trucks so they don't break unexpectedly.

Follow our step by step pallet truck service guide to keep all of your pallet trucks running smoothly.

Step 1 - Inspect

Are there any problems that jump out at you right away? Eg. the wheels are damaged/missing or the forks aren't straight.

If so, this pallet truck should no longer be used in the workplace as it poses a potential safety hazard. Seek out replacement parts & repair the pallet truck before putting it back in service. Generally speaking, if your pallet trucks have been used carefully and correctly by a trained operative then they should be in relatively good working order with no obvious damage. 

Step 2 - Test

If everything looks ok with the pallet truck, it's time to move on to the second phase of your pallet truck service- testing whether the pallet truck works or not! To test the truck, load the truck will a pallet and check each functionality one by one. As someone who works with pallet trucks, it's likely you'll spot any faults right away!

Take note of the issues you come across, especially if you'll be passing the truck over to a separate repair team following your inspection!

Step 3 - Repair

Now that you've identified problems with your pallet truck, it's time to make any necessary repairs and get your pallet truck back out to work in no time. Here are a few problems that you may notice as you carry out your pallet truck inspection, and some ways you might be able to solve them.

Problem: The pallet truck's jack is unable to lift the load:

  • Air trapped inside the hydraulic pump - To fix this problem, all you need to do is displace the air bubble inside the mechanism. Try pumping the lever rapidly 10 - 15 times (or until the problem no longer persists).
  • Hydraulic pump fluid is running low - Make sure the pallet truck is in the lowered position. Remove the plug that keeps the hydraulic fluid vessel sealed and re-fill the oil reservoir. If the problem persists, you might have to drain the pallet truck and start again. 

Problem: Pallet Truck won't move:

  • The wheel is damaged - Try taking off the wheel and re-attaching it, ensuring that the wheel fits as it should be and nothing is obstructing the wheel. If the problem persists try replacing the wheel. 

These are just a few problems you might encounter with your pallet trucks. Contact us on 0117 9381 600 for more advice.

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.

Using pallet trucks safely is extremely important. Pallet trucks can be incredibly versatile and useful on-site; however, the misuse of pallet trucks may lead to serious leg, feet and back injuries.

We have compiled a short list of safety precautions that should help to reduce the risk of pallet truck accidents. Proper training should always be provided before operating a pallet truck on-site.

Safety Guidelines

  • Face in the direction you are travelling
  • Take extra care on uneven surfaces
  • Don’t allow riders or passengers on to the pallet truck
  • Always use both forks when lifting the load
  • Do not use on a slope unless the truck is fitted with brakes.
