Southworth Products says its new PalletPal Walkie is an automatic pallet load leveler that mounts on to any standard electric walkie or walkie/rider pallet truck to make order picking faster, safer and easier.
Built on the proven 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 company says. 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.
Southworth says 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.
No tools are required to mount the PalletPal Walkie on a pallet truck. The company says 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 easy 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, the company adds.
