Your warehouse is probably filled with pallets upon pallets of products. Pallets are one of the most popular ways to ship items. They are cheap to manufacture and they are easy to move…if you have the right equipment. Do you?
While forklifts get all of the attention, they are expensive and quite large. They are simply not an option for every business. You may not have much room or the need for that level of pallet-moving power. The solution: Stackers.
What Are Stackers?
Stackers are a light-duty lift alternative to heavier-duty lift equipment such as forklifts. Stackers can be manual or electrically powered and have a variety of different capacities and specifications. This is very beneficial for a number of reasons, including:
- Initial Investment: Stackers do not represent the same level of financial investment as forklifts, making stackers a more economical choice. For this reason alone, stackers are the preferred choice for smaller businesses throughout Maryland.
- Certification: Operating a forklift requires certain certifications. Stackers, meanwhile, can be easily operated by any trained employee.
- Maneuverability: Stackers are ideal for crowded and compact work areas, offering many of the benefits of larger forklifts without any of the hassles. Because they are smaller than forklifts, both manual and electric stackers offer easy maneuverability as well as smooth lifting capabilities. Manual stackers can lift to maximum heights of around 80 inches, while powered stackers can go above 150 inches.
- Maintenance: Manual stackers, for example, require minimal maintenance and upkeep.
Powered stackers are commonly found in warehouses, loading docks, light assembly work cells, retail sales floors, and more.
