Motorized Pallet Truck
The Walkie-Rider, Walkie or Rider is a Motorized Pallet Truck that is essentially a motorized version of a pallet jack. They are available in both "Walkie" models as well as "Rider" versions.
The walkie model as the name implies, is made to allow the operator to walk alongside the machinery as they lift and transport cargo. The operator stands on a small platform on the Rider model. The rider models are great for frequent transporting of cargo over extended distances in manufacturing applications and warehouses. They are extremely maneuverable and fast.
It is vital to remember that there is no safety cage on this model and thus, it is not recommended to move unstable or tall loads utilizing these equipment. A rider might be the best answer if you are searching for an inexpensive way of transporting loads from point A to point B. If though, you must move heavy loads short distances, and prefer to use a more employee-friendly unit instead of a pallet jack, the walkie model might be the right option.
An Order Selector also goes by the name of Order picker. This machine is specifically designed for manual handling of less-than-pallet-load quantities in racking. There are fixed forks attached to a platform in the Man-up design. This particular platform elevates both the load and the operator in an effort to facilitate manual loading and unloading from racking areas.
Typically, the order selector is a very narrow aisle vehicle that can work in smaller aisles. They are extremely handy pieces of machine in physical inventories as well as during cycle counting situations. Order selectors are available in lift heights up to 40 feet high, though models which range in the 20 to 30 foot range are much more common.
