Pallet jacks – the manual helper
The pallet jack is also an indispensable assistant for many tasks. Its draw bar pivots freely, but it can’t drop down after release. Stabilus gas springs hold it securely in position.
If the pallet jack has a power unit, the jack can optionally be equipped with a collapsible step unit. A safety bar with a gas spring integrated within provides a secure foothold for the driver. Even the pallet jack’s battery cover can be opened and closed comfortably and held open securely with Stabilus gas springs.
In forklifts, gas springs are incorporated into the steering column as well as other locations. This enables the operator to adjust the height of the steering wheel to their exact size and preferred sitting position.
When the vehicle battery needs to be replaced or repaired, Stabilus gas springs hold the driver’s seat up reliably. In this way, they provide easy access to the battery and safe work.
Our gas springs are integrated into the draw bar of a pallet jack. The draw bar goes back to its initial position after use so it doesn’t get in the way of anything.
If the pallet jack has a power unit, the gas spring in the draw bar works in conjunction with the corresponding electronics for controlled motion of the draw bar back to its initial position. It thus provides for safe deceleration of the pallet jack.
Safety takes center stage even when it comes to the steps. With the integrated gas spring, the steps fold up more easily and open out gently, considerably reducing any risk of injury.
