Pallet Trucks & Lifters

Need help? Need help? How machinery can take the strain in your warehouse? When you’re running a busy warehouse and shifting heavy crates, you can’t rely on the willingness and dedication of your staff cant be relied on alone to move large equipment and heavy boxes. Not only will this eventually cause injuries, it isn’t best practice when running a business. Using the right lifters removes the strain and significantly reduces the risk of injury. It also enables employees to get the job done more quickly and efficiently.

At Seton, we appreciate every warehousing environment is different, and we know you may be looking for machinery you’re already familiar with, so we stock a range of different types of lifter. We also have pallet trucks to help you move goods, and combinations of the two to make your operation as simple as possible.

Pump Trucks: Buying Guide

Our selection of pallet trucks and lifters includes everything you’re likely to need to move goods in and out of your warehouse and position them where you want them. All these items are straightforward and easy to use, and with proper training, your employees will be able to make use of them to do their jobs much more safely, simply and efficiently.

Some of our lifters are designed to be operated manually but make the task much easier than direct lifting, using levers, often with a pedal system. Others operate under hydraulic power and take all the strain themselves so that all your employees need to do is slide goods on and off them. Scissor lift tables are ideal in this regard.

You can move these lifters around with ease by tilting them backwards onto their wheels, and they’re stable when tilted back into static position. Most of our pallet trucks operate in a similar way. Some have a wheel at each corner for easier moving, but it takes a bit more effort to move goods onto these at floor level. Trucks and lifters like this need to be braked before goods are moved on or off them or lifting apparatus is operated, ensuring that they can’t move at the same time and injure somebody.

We also stock simple skip trucks, designed for moving loose items, such as rubble or refuse. These can be moved around in a more upright position and tilted to empty their contents. They’re very easy to use and are a great option for moving a large amount of debris in a short amount of time.

Our pallet trucks and lifters come in different sizes and have different weight limits, so be careful to work out what you will need before you buy. Exceeding the weight limit is not recommended as it could damage the unit or the goods being moved, and could make it difficult to claim on your insurance. All the items we stock have a good life expectancy if used in accordance with the instructions.

When buying a lifter, you should also consider the speed at which it will be operated and the height it can reach. There is a degree of trade-off between speed and sturdiness, so think about which is most important to you – the speed of your operations or the durability of your lifter.

Because not everything arrives in convenient packaging, our range includes lift tables, offer a secure way to raise and lower irregularly shaped items. They offer more stability than other types of lifter, so they’re also a good choice for fragile items.


Can these lifters and pallet trucks be used outside?

All the lifters and trucks in our selection can be used indoors or out, and they can be very useful for loading and unloading vehicles. It is, however, a good idea to choose one with rugged wheels if you plan to take it across rough ground. Regularly maintaining your equipment and checking for signs of rust will help to protect it from damage if it’s frequently exposed to the elements.

How much strength does it take to tilt a loaded pallet truck?

The simple answer is that it depends on how heavily the truck is loaded, but all our tilt trucks are designed to tilt easily on their axes, so they never require a great deal of strength to manoeuvre. They can’t tilt very far, so you don’t need to worry about them falling on employees.

What’s the difference between single and double scissor lift tables?

As a rule, double scissor lift tables are more stable and can support more weight, but if you are handling heavy items, then you should always check the weight limits on individual products before you buy. Never attempt to raise or lower items while the table is moving, because this can compromise its stability.
