What is a pedestrian forklift truck?

Pedestrian pallet trucks and pedestrian reach trucks are a useful alternative to larger forklift vehicles, like counterbalance forklifts. They are suitable for a range of everyday material-handling purposes, mainly moving pallets over short distances.

Compact yet powerful

Although pedestrian trucks are usually operated and steered manually via an arm and handle, they are available in powered models, increasing their load capacity.

Electric-powered pedestrian forklifts are compact, yet robust machines. This makes them ideal for warehouses and other tightly-packed environments.

These forklifts feature the same compact design and ease of movement that can be found in regular pallet trucks. They also feature masts, which means they can reach and stack too.
