A leading West Midlands provider of manual handling equipment is continuing its expansion through strategic inventory growth. Midland Pallet Trucks, which offers lift tables, machinery jacks, and other effective tools for warehouse environments, has broadened its existing range of hand pallet trucks with the introduction of a new heavy duty economic model, providing more buying choice for customers.
The new economic pallet truck features both nylon steer wheels and load wheels, and is capable of moving up to 2000kg loads, making it suitable for high capacity needs. The deliberate design and 540x1150mm length across the forks makes the new hand pallet truck perfectly compatible with the Euro Pallet which, at 120x80cm, is one of the most common sizes of pallet currently handled in the UK. However, for those faced with more varied loads, the latest introduction to the catalogue will also fit larger pallets, including the 120x100cm pallet which is also common in warehouses.
“It’s great to see the UK warehousing industry performing so well at the moment, but we understand that their needs are changing in response to supplier changes and import load changes,” says Midland Pallet Trucks Managing Director, Phil Chesworth. “That’s why we believe that now more than ever it’s vital that we’re ensuring our clients have easy access to a wide range of handling equipment, making it less challenging for them to adapt to operating in a post-Brexit landscape.”
Midland Pallet Trucks is known for being highly selective and has chosen the economic hand pallet truck for its ability to not only facilitate smoother processes but also boost worker safety. The new addition comes with a 3-position handle for ease of use and improved handling control, as well as CE approval which confirms that the product meets the health, safety, and environmental requirements in the EU. The equipment also comes with an EC Declaration of Conformity which states that the pallet truck meets safety criteria.
At a time when businesses across many industries are still struggling to recover from the uncertainties of Brexit, Midland Pallet Trucks is growing notably. The new economic hand pallet truck is just the latest in a long line of new offerings from the materials handling equipment expert. Just recently, Midland Pallet Trucks introduced four new semi-electric and fully-electric models that had been specially designed to boost health and safety in the workplace through ergonomic features and ease of use.
