Nobody Does Pallet Rack Installations Better Than Easy Rack!

When creating a new storage area for your business, all industrial shelving methods must be reviewed and pallet racks are a good starting point. One should consider the quality of the pallets themselves as well as the pallet racking installation.

Most bulk materials are now delivered on pallets or bulk containers and organizing them within the warehouse makes internal and external material handling logistics of products on pallets much quicker. Fork lifts can be used to easily move items where they are needed, rather than picking them up individually by hand.

There is a common perception that used pallet racking installers are a dime a dozen. This is not a simple process that can be carried out by just anyone. Pallet rack assembly must be carried out by trained professionals who are experienced in all aspects of the process for nothing more than safety reasons.

Every pallet racking installation is completely different. From the material used in the flooring through to the height of the racks, and the kind of materials that your racking need to support, each installation has its own design considerations.

Tilt Masters resolve all of these problems with hydraulic and electrical lifting systems.

What are some tangible benefits offered by tilt masters?
Large pallets containing fragile materials can also easily be damaged when using generic pallet jacks that lack the hydraulic lift to properly elevate the supplies and move them from station to station or station to storage. Even more importantly, worker safety can be at risk in cramped quarters where laborers have to manually lift supplies, boxes, crates, and barrels. It is a scientific fact that severe back injuries can result from lifting only 25 lbs. Incorrectly, and the loss of skilled labor and the cost of workman’s compensation is far too much risk to take even for a larger organization. Tilt Masters resolve all of these problems with hydraulic and electrical lifting systems that can safely elevate loads of up to 3 tons to the necessary height and tilt at up to 90° to accommodate dual function as a transportation tool and temporary replacement for a worktable.

What are the differences between the manual tilt master and the master straddle?
The manual tilt master works like an ergonomic pallet jack. It is ideal for lifting and tilting crates, boxes, and pallets with an open bottom. It forces the worker to stand in a correct position when loading or unloading product. A person does not have to bend down or reach over to use the equipment, so the risk of shoulder strain or back injury is significantly minimized. The Tilt Master’s forks can be tilted at up to 90°, and it rolls smoothly over a variety of warehouse surfaces on 6" x 2" polyurethane swivel casters with brake and foot protectors. .

The Tilt Master Straddle offers a higher level of maneuverability and multi-function options.
It can actually double as a pallet truck and a portable tilt table. The DC powered lifting mechanism completely eliminates the need for manual exertion. A folding ergonomic handle offers dual steering grips to precisely maneuver the unit down cramped aisles or areas where materials are stacked and people are working. The unit’s thin profile further improves on worker safety by allowing laborers to get as close to the load as possible for greater control. When the unit is stationary, it can be trusted not to move or shift position due to solid floor locks that grip and hold the tilt master in place. The Tilt Master Straddle can be used for any kind of container or pallet, including odd-sized loads and barrels. The 12V DC electric motor contains an on-board battery charger, so when the unit is idle it can be plugged in to renew engine power.

It is a fact that severe back injuries can result from lifting only 25 pounds. Incorrectly, and the loss of skilled labor and the cost of workman’s compensation is far too much risk to take even for a larger organization.

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!
