Scissor Pallet Jack FAQs
Scissor pallet jacks are material handling devices that combine the functionality of a pallet jack and that of a scissor lift. It is designed to lift and transport heavy loads or pallets to different heights, making it easier to move them within a warehouse or industrial setting.
Structure: It consists of a wheeled platform with a set of forks or tines at one end for lifting and carrying pallets. The other end contains a scissor mechanism, which is essentially a series of folding supports arranged in a crisscross pattern.
Manual or Electric: Scissor lift pallet jacks can be manually operated or powered by an electric motor. Manual models require physical effort to operate, while electric ones are controlled using buttons or levers.
Lifting Mechanism: To elevate the load, the operator maneuvers the jack beneath the pallet or load to be lifted. By pumping a hydraulic lever or activating an electric switch, the scissor lift mechanism extends, raising the forks and the load off the ground.
Height Adjustment: The scissor lift mechanism allows for precise height adjustment. Depending on the model, the lifting height can vary from a few inches to several feet, enabling the operator to place the load at a desired elevation.
Movement: Once the load is lifted to the desired height, the scissor lift pallet jack can be moved by pushing or pulling it using the handle or operating the electric controls. The wheels on the platform make it easy to maneuver in tight spaces.
Lowering the Load: To lower the load, the operator typically releases a lever or switch that activates the hydraulic system, allowing the scissor lift mechanism to retract gradually. This lowers the load back down to the ground or desired position.
Scissor lift pallet jacks provide a safer and more ergonomic alternative to manually lifting and carrying heavy objects, reducing the risk of injuries and improving productivity.
The capacity of your pallet jack scissor lift will be based on the model you order. Lifting capacities vary from 1,000 lbs to 2,200 lbs.
Each scissor pallet jack unit will come with a maintenance manual. The manual will advise on what needs to be done to take care of your unit.
Scissor lift pallet jacks are commonly used in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and distribution centers where there is a need to move heavy loads efficiently and adjust their height as required.
