When and where are walkies the best option for moving pallets?

When

When you are making repeat runs of 50’ or longer, an electric pallet jack is a more effective option than a manual pallet jack. But, if your runs are consistently way over 50’ and require higher speeds, consider end-controlled or center-controlled rider pallet trucks --such as the Jungheinrich ECR.

Where

Some of the most common applications where electric walkie pallet trucks are used effectively are warehouses, manufacturing and retail settings.

Why

First, walkies are way less expensive than counter-balanced forklifts, but they also work better in smaller spaces where a traditional, counter-balanced forklift simply won’t fit. Operating costs are much lower than running a forklift, and, unlike forklift trucks, anyone with adequate training can operate an electric pallet jack.
