In contrast to pallet stackers, used low-lift trucks lift their wares simply off the floor – therefore only as far as the wheels of the truck can freely roll. Therefore the movement of goods with low-lift trucks is known as horizontal transport.
Most used low-lift trucks have two prongs to hold pallets. Pallet transport is the predominant application for used low-lift trucks, as it is for hand pallet trucks, although low-lift trucks can also be equipped with electric power systems. These are essential in the large and heavy models, which can move loads of up to 3 tons.
If the loads must be lifted rather high – e.g. to load a truck or fill a rack, then low-lift trucks are not suitable – in these cases pallet stackers, 3-wheel counterbalanced forklifts or 4-wheel counterbalanced forklifts are the right choice.
Used low-lift trucks are also sold or rented with rider platforms, rider seats and also with cabs.
