A Pallet Jack …
also known as a pallet truck, pump truck, or jigger is a tool used to lift and move pallets .
The front wheels are mounted inside the end of the forks, and as the hydraulic jack is raised, the forks are separated vertically from the front wheels, forcing the load upward until it clears the floor. The pallet is only lifted enough to clear the floor for subsequent travel. Ref: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Pallet _ jack

Pallet Jack Types
There are two main types.
M anual pallet jacks allow the operator to steer and manoeuvre the pallet trucks without actually driving the equipment. The lifting action for pallet jacks consists of a lever that needs to be pumped to lift the pallet jacks to the desired height. A release switch allows the pallet jacks to lower the load slowly and carefully without causing any damage.
Powered pallet jacks are fully automated and operate using and engine or motor with hydraulics to assist with the lifting and lowering of loads. There are three types of motorised pallet jacks: Available with petrol, diesel and electric motors.
Each type of pallet jack has a different load carrying capacity. You need to choose pallet jacks that will meet the requirements for the type, size and weight of the goods that will be moved using pallets.
