The less energy your employees use, the more efficient products can be moved throughout your operation.

Electric walkie pallet jacks are a budget-friendly way to add extra value to your fleet. Compared to other material handling truck classes, they require fewer moving parts resulting in less maintenance and fewer service calls which can be instrumental in reaching production goals and improving your business bottom-line.
