What different types are there?
A pump truck or a pallet truck can come in different designs and sizes. At Kruizinga, we have a diverse range of pallet trucks. Before you want to buy a pallet truck, you should think carefully about the application for which you want to use the pallet truck. Below, we briefly explain the differences:
Hand pallet truck
A hand pallet truck is a pallet truck that can be propelled by its own power. They are indispensable for internal transport. Do you want to move goods over short distances and are the goods not too heavy? Then a hand pallet truck is ideal. Our hand pallet trucks are available in various sizes, from 800 mm fork length to as much as 2500 mm fork length.
Highlifter, also known as a scissor lift, is a pallet truck that can lift even further than an ordinary pump truck. Using a pump, the pallet truck can be raised, allowing you to easily pick pallets from a height.
With a highlifter, you can lift loads of 1,000 kg up to 800 mm high.
Mobile lift table
A mobile lift table is used to raise heavy goods and pallets to an ergonomic working height. At Kruizinga, we have various models of mobile lift tables. From load capacities of 150 kg to as much as 1000 kg. The advantages of a movable lift table are: reduced back problems and improved productivity.
Stacker trucks help you transport and lift pallets and goods. At Kruizinga, we have manual stackers in our range. We have hydraulic stackers and stackers with hand winch. A stacker truck is a type of forklift truck that ensures that your employees can work ergonomically. The applications of a stacker truck can vary, from placing products in racks to loading trucks.
However, a stacker truck may only be operated by an authorised person who holds a certificate.
Pallet truck with weighing system
Do you need to weigh goods regularly? Then a pallet truck with a weighing system is perfect for you! This pallet truck allows you to read how heavy your load weighs on the screen on the pallet truck with weighing system and does not require a separate scale. These pallet trucks have a load capacity of up to 2000 kg!
What should you look out for when buying a pump truck?
If you want to buy a pump truck, there are a number of aspects to consider. For example, some pump trucks require a certificate. It is also useful to know what you want to use the pump truck for. Do you only want to transport pallets from A to B? Then an ordinary hand pallet truck will do. Do you need to move pallets upwards? Then opt for a stacker truck.
