They allow the pallet truck to perform well on a wide range of terrains and industrial warehouse environments, extend battery life and extend maintenance intervals. Firms looking for increased manoeuvrability will also find the PowerTruk an exceptional option with stabilisers working in conjunction with the compact, but heavy-duty drive unit. Models like the PowerTruk 1800 also have a tighter turning circle than other pallet trucks like the DriverTruk.
Designed for optimum efficiency
Companies in need of a pallet truck that can stand up to constant use will find the PowerTruk a perfect choice.

A semi-electric pallet truck, the DriverTruk is designed to carry heavy loads. With a weight capacity of 1800 kg, companies that need to shift considerable tonnage on-site swiftly are advised to select this solution. Manual pallet trucks can put employees under physical strain and slow down productivity, but a semi-electric option like the DriverTruk can offer operators effortless motion reducing risks of injuries.

To conserve power and running costs, this semi-electric solution switches off automatically when it’s idle for more than two minutes.
Designed for increased productivity and safety
