The PalletPal Walkie from Southworth Products mounts to any standard electric walkie or walkie/rider pallet truck. Built on the 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 top layer of the load is always at a convenient working height, allowing employees to load or offload items with no bending, stretching or awkward ergonomics.
No tools are required to mount it on a pallet truck. 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 pick-up 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 it will not slip on the pallet truck forks.
Typically a worker picks orders until a pallet is full and then drops the load, including the PalletPal Walkie, in a staging area where the pallet is loaded onto a truck. The worker then picks up another PalletPal Walkie and repeats the process.
The platform accepts any type of pallet or skid including GEO and half pallets.
