Self-Securing Pallet Jack
July 2012, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Palletsmith says its new pallet jack makes the job easier for pickup and delivery drivers.
Drivers of P&D vehicles that carry their own pallet jacks should tie them down between stops to meet federal cargo securement rules under 393.103, especially when there are no pallets aboard to jam the jacks under. This means strapping or chaining them to walls or floors.
But Palletsmith's 5,500-pound-capacity pallet truck carries its own Stop 'N' Hold chock that secures the wheels under the handle, then stores in a pocket-like holder while the jack is in use.
It's from Herwin Inc., which has more information at www.palletsmith.com.
