Pallet Trucks UK has seen two new trucks join its range of manual handling equipment.

The two ‘easy roller’ ERA25-A and ERA25-B pallet trucks are set to offer increased variety for businesses in need of a manual handling solution that balances productivity with safety. The models incorporate a foot lever, which can drive the truck forward to make life easier for operators, and the traditional pump action of the handle is used to rotate and drive the rear wheels of the truck, reducing the initial force needed to make the pallet truck move.

Starting the movement of a very heavy load can be tough for those operating a fully-loaded pallet truck, because too little force gets them nowhere and too much force can see accidents occur. The new trucks make it easier to kick-start the initial movement, reducing the risk of accidents and boosting control for the operator.

Both trucks have a capacity of 2500kg, and both have easy rollers for simple loading. The only difference between the two is the width of the forks – the ERA25-A model has forks suitable for the popular Euro pallets, while the ERA25-B model has slightly wider forks, suitable for the GKN-blue pallets.

“We scour the world in order to find the best quality pallet trucks for sale to our customers,” said Phil Chesworth, managing director of Pallet Trucks UK.

“Prioritising operator health and safety without compromising on productivity, the new trucks are an excellent addition to our ever-growing collection. We can now confidently say that we have a stock of pallet trucks to rival anyone in the country, and we’re one of the prime destinations for buyers looking to expand their fleet.”
