Southworth Products has introduced the PalletPal Walkie, which mounts to any standard electric walkie or walkie/rider pallet truck to help make order picking faster, safer and easier. Built on the design of PalletPal Level Loaders, the PalletPal Walkie uses a calibrated spring mechanism to automatically adjust the height of a pallet load as boxes are added or removed. The top layer of the load is always at a comfortable, convenient working height, allowing employees to load or offload items with no bending, stretching or awkward posture.
No tools are required to mount the PalletPal Walkie on a pallet truck. The specially designed reinforced baseframe has generous flared openings at the end of each fork channel to receive the forks of all standard electric walkies for pickup and drop off without binding. Once loaded onto the pallet truck, the PalletPal walkie is ready for use with no adjustments or modifications. Whether under load or empty PalletPal Walkie will not slip on the pallet truck forks.
In a typical application a worker picks orders until a pallet is full and then drops the entire load, including the PalletPal Walkie, in a staging area where the pallet is loaded to a truck by a fork lift or stacker. The worker then picks up another PalletPal Walkie and repeats the process.
The platform features an anti-slip surface and accepts any type of pallet or skid including GEO and half pallets.Platform recesses and non-skid base treads allow workers to step up close to the load to minimize reaching across the pallet.
