A walkie stacker or pedestrian walk-behind stacker is a walk behind pallet truck with a mast for lifting pallets to heights. There are many different types of walkie stackers that are suited to different applications. In this blog post we will outline each of them and provide some walkie stacker basic application guidelines.
Walkie Stackers can be either powered or manual. They are most commonly used for transporting & lifting pallets where a forklift is not necessary; such as in store rooms, small warehouses and specialised warehousing sections or as a backup for more expensive forklifts.
These machines are perfect for small capacity items transported around a warehouse or any premises for less than 5 hours a day. They are more suited to indoor use due to their small wheels and it is recommended that they are only used on flat concrete floors, but they can be ordered from the factory with specialised requirements such as larger wheels.
