Electric Pallet Jacks, Manual Forklift Truck Supplies & Accessories Online at Discount Prices from Easy Rack.

There are a wide range of different designs and manufacturers of electric pallet jacks that supply material handling products through Easy Rack. In general, all of the manufacturers we promote carry variations of electric and manual pallet jacks with subtle differences depending on the actual model or features that you select.

One of the advantages of using electric powered pallet stackers or trucks over manual pallet jacks is to gain a much larger range of movement during the loading process. Using an electric pallet jack with a built in scale, it is possible to raise the load much more quickly to a greater height. This means that the user will find it much easier to lift a palletized load to a level where it can be conveniently handled by the end user rather than leaving the items at floor level.

Thanks to the strength of the load bearing platform on an power assisted pallet jack, it is possible to lift surprisingly heavy weights and make it easy to move them around the warehouse of factory. In addition to this, it is also much more straightforward to get heavy loads onto a truck or trailer with the jack rather than using a forklift. The single button control system that is used by the electric pallet jack means that it is a much more straightforward system when in use than conventional jacks, so users will only require a very short training session before they are confident to use the truck properly.

The latest electric pallet jacks offer the same kind of pneumatic or hydraulic lifting capacity of their conventional gas powered rivals, and are quicker and more efficient to use.

Here are some electric pallet truck specifications that you should know:

- Electric pallet lift trucks run off 24Volt batteries with battery charger standard.
- The 3,000 pound capacity models use two 12Volt batteries with 70Ah rating.
- The 4,500 pound capacity models use four 12Volt batteries with 180Ah rating.
- Electric pallet trucks will typically achieve a minimum of eight hours of service on a full charge.

Electric Pallet Stackers & Skid Lift Servers provide all in one versatility for a wide variety of product packaging and shipping department needs.

Are Electric Pallet Stackers & Skid Lift Servers classified as an ergonomic tool?
Yes, because it eliminates the need for human muscle to exert pressure on the standard hydraulic lifts of regular pallet jacks. It also provides for easier maneuverability to avoid twisting the back.

Which Pallet Stacker works best for a variety of containers and pallets?
Pallet stackers provides all in one versatility for a wide variety of product packaging. This is a key benefit to receiving departments that intake supplies from multiple manufacturers and who are receiving truckloads of different products, all of varying weights and dimensions. The Pallet Master can easily handle 4,000 pounds. Workers can operate the unit with a fingertip rocker switch control without having to exert or strain themselves. This pallet server works very well on a variety of floor surfaces also. Two 8” X 2” phenolic swivel casters guide the wheels and ensure mobility over occasional spots of debris or rough concrete in older warehouses. Easy Rack can install an optional remote or on-board battery charger by client request. A charge indicator also can be installed in DC units.

Which pallet server works best with skids and pallets?
The Counter-Balanced Pallet stacker is Easy Rack’s smaller version of the pallet mallet master. It is ideal for moving pallets and skids between multiple workstations. The horizontal load center is balanced at 18”, and its adjustable forks range from 8” to 28” in length. Easy Rack offers three unique power options for this series. Clients can choose from 12V DC power, 115V AC power, or Air/Oil power. The Counter-Balanced Pallet Master is very easy to move around on its 8” X 3” phenolic casters, and it is also very easy to control. A push button pendant attached to the unit on an 8 foot coil cord allows workers to maneuver the unit either at close distance or while standing back several feet. This feature is especially useful when moving pallets down stacked aisles where it may be too cramped for the employee to physically walk and maneuver the pallet truck at the same time.

Do you have any units that allow for heavy load stacking?

Yes. The Counter-Balanced Stacker functions just like its name suggests. In addition to moving small loads from one place to another without the need of an over sized fork truck, it also allows workers to access any load from three different sides of the pallet trucks. In the front, the end is open, and this enables the forks to be next to the workstation for easy transfer of the load to and from the workstation or storage unit. The unit includes a standard 12V DC power lift with an on-board charger, and it includes a counterbalance as well. Push buttons on the power unit allow workers to raise and lower the lift without interrupting task flow. Easy Rack can also provide an optional hand control on coil cord if requested. The Counter-Balanced Stacker also features superior security by means of a key operated ON/OFF control built into the power unit.

What load capacities can these units carry?
Load capacities range from 600 lbs to 4,000 lbs depending on model. Easy Rack can provide additional documentation or new updated material handling articles upon request via email, or can answer specific questions over the phone.

Commercial Pallet Stackers & Pallet Trucks are affordable alternatives to expensive fork lifts.

Pallet stacker's are most commonly used for transporting a single pallet from the floor to a workspace. Pallet stackers have all the capacity that you need in order to move weights up to 4000 pounds depending on the exact model to select. Pallet stacking devices are flexible in use to carry a range of different commercial pallets and crates.

Commercial Pallet Stacker's are affordable alternatives to a fork lift truck in moving either pelleted loads or wooden crates around a warehouse or factory. It has a number of advantages over a larger and more expensive forklift, although there are also a number of deign limitations that restrict the range of its applications, and mean that it cannot be used as an exact alternative.

One of the unique factors that make these pallet stacker's such a useful addition to any warehouse is the fact that the forks are so adjustable. Featuring a standard size 4” wide fork that is 26” in length, they are designed to support a standard pallet base, but thanks to the fact that the separation of the forks can be set at anything between 8" and 37 ", it is possible to safely lift a massive range of different sized objects including crates and even drums.

Pallet stacker's have relatively small footprint making them easy to maneuver through rows and rows of warehouse shelving. Stacker's can be easily navigated through a tight space, and feature a set of heavy duty swivel casters and powered wheels. Power comes from on board batteries that can be charged through a standard AC supply, and will give enough charge to perform all the tasks that you ask of them. The key aspect of the electric pallet feature of these models is their low center of gravity and counter balanced weight system.

If you are considering adding a pallet truck or pallet stacker to your fleet of tools and equipment, we trust that you will contact the professionals at Easy Rack. We can be reached at 713-553-1122 or online at

We look forward to your call and the opportunity to assist you!
