The right tools can make an enormous difference, and a pallet jack is one of these key pieces of equipment. A pallet jack can easily maneuver loads, and go where large forklifts can’t.
Electric pallet jacks take productivity to the next level with the benefit of an electric motor. In addition to helping the operator move loads, the motor assists with raising and lowering the forks. For this reason, electric pallet jack forks can be raised higher than manual pallet jack forks Electric pallet jacks can be used for several hours before they need to recharge and are a popular piece of equipment for warehouses, distribution centers, food and beverage facilities and operations with narrow aisles.

We help customers save thousands of dollars by switching to electric Polaris GEM vehicles. They’re low maintenance and can run up to 8 hours on a single charge. Large fleets can save six-figures in fuel and maintenance costs, not to mention significantly reducing their CO2 emissions.
When you think about it, most operations don't need a truck designed to be driven 80 mph on the freeway. On a typical campus, vehicles never exceed 25 mph and are only driven about 12 miles per day. So why pay more for a full-size vehicle? We’re happy to provide a personal consultation, but here’s a quick combustion to electric fleet savings calculator.
Polaris GEM vehicles are also eligible for alternative-fuel vehicle funding programs such as The San Joaquin Valley Air Grant (up to $20,000 per vehicle, $100,000 per agency per year).
So which one is better? It all depends on your operation...

Traction-treaded solid pneumatic tires are a popular option because they are puncture-resistant yet offer a smooth ride over rougher terrain. For applications where the forklift used is used on non-paved applications (driveways, loading ramps) in addition to smooth surfaces - this is truly the best of both worlds.
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) Compliance and Certification are designed to prevent foodborne illnesses. Unfortunately, bacterial contamination remains a leading cause of FDA recalls.
Food contamination from Salmonella, E. coli and Listeria monocytogenes has actually increased in recent years - from 28 percent of food recalls to over 31 percent. With all the rules and requirements, how is this still a problem?
