Pallet truck

« Back to Glossary Index

Pallet trucks (pump truck, pallet jack, hand truck) are tools used to slightly lift pallets off the ground and move them over short distances.

Electric self-propelled versions exist, and, in some cases, the operators may ride on the pallet truck instead of walking it.

In the manual version, the handle is also the hand-powered jack, used to lift the pallet slightly off the ground, prior to moving it.
