How to pick the perfect pallet truck

Find which Panther pallet truck would be beneficial to your business.

The strong silent type…

The Panther Silent which offers a noiseless transport is an ideal solution to any work place that needs a peaceful atmosphere. The Panther offers a low truck weight, a tight turning angle of 220 degrees, adjustable fork height, permanent quick lift, and the capability of lifting 2000 kg. Because the Panther has an ergonomically correct handle and special designed wheels, it ensures very minimal starting power and the correct control of the heaviest pallets, both when the truck is being pushed or pulled. With the Panther’s rounded corners there is no damage done to surroundings, pallets, and merchandise. The Panther Silent will benefit a company in many ways. For example, restocking shelves in stores should not inconvenience or disturb the customer. With the Panther Silent shelves can be restocked during business hours. Having more products on the shelves means more products are available to be sold and the customer can find what they are looking for.

Not only does that bring in more money it also frees up workers to do other things that can be useful to the company. Stores can cut costs by not having to be open at night to restock shelves; also fewer employees are needed if things are done quickly and efficiently. The Panther pallet truck is also available in stainless steel version for hygienic pallet handling, which is beneficial to the pharmaceutical, medical, and food industries. Logitrans also offers an explosion proof model of the Panther and different types of wheels, to fulfil various needs of the user.

The Panther Silent can also be used outdoor. The Panther Silent is durable, environmentally friendly, and offers a long operating life. Both the steering and the fork wheels are made of soft non-marking rubber. This makes the Panther Silent gentle to tile floors, but durable enough for gravel roads or uneven surfaces, and tough enough to go through snow. Because of the special design of the wheels flooring will not be damaged. Stones, metal chips, tacks, nails, and snow will not stick to the wheels. The twin fork wheels make it easy to change direction making it effective in small spaces. The Panther Silent would be ideal in home improvement stores with the ability to be used outside as well as inside without disturbing the customers shopping. Stores, shops, and chains, all over the world have benefited from using the Panther and the Panther Silent.

The Panther Flex has everything the Panther offers; in addition, it is highly flexible. The Panther Flex can be made with fork lengths ranging from 600 mm to 2400 mm and with fork spans ranging from 350 mm to 1100 mm. It is also available with drum forks.
