Midland Pallet Trucks expands stainless steel pallet truck range 08 August 2019

Midland Pallet Trucks, a nationwide leader in the supply of handling equipment for UK warehouses, factories, and logistics, has announced the introduction of a new range of stainless steel apparatus to expand upon an already vast collection of high-quality hand pallet trucks.

The introduction of two new pieces of equipment provides the company with an opportunity to meet evolving client needs through the provision of shorter length pallet trucks to safely handle both Euro pallet and UK GKN pallet configurations.

Already offering an extensive range of high lift pallet trucks and manual stacker trucks, Midland Pallet Trucks’ new additions include the DBCS20-685×1000 short and wide stainless steel and the DBCS20-520x1000 short stainless steel pallet truck. Both are shorter length pump trucks with 1,000mm lengths, a lowered fork height and raised fork height of 85mm and 200mm respectively. The new models each offer a 2,500kg capacity, 180mm x 50mm nylon steering wheels, and 80mm x 70mm nylon tandem load rollers.

The DBCS20-685×1000 model is categorised as a ‘special size’ pallet truck, with wider fork dimensions in addition to the shorter length. This model features a larger gap between forks, 365mm, making it ideally suited to moving and handling Blue GKN style pallets especially.

“We know that there’s no ‘one size fits all’ in warehouse management and materials handling. We believe that it’s essential for teams to have quick, simple access to the right handling equipment to allow them to safely, securely, and efficiently move different pallet styles and different loads. We’ve had fantastic feedback for our existing stainless steel pallet trucks, so introducing these two new models seemed like the natural next step for us,” explains Phil Chesworth, managing director at Midland Pallet Trucks.

Both of the new models offered by Midland Pallet Trucks feature quality AISI 304 stainless steel construction; a grade that is renowned for its strength, durability, and non-corrosive properties against many different forms of oxidising acids. Less costly than AISI 316 grade stainless steel, the use of 304 is designed to offer customers high-quality, cost-effective handling equipment with good weldability, excellent low temperature performance, and top corrosion resistance.

Midland Pallet Trucks is a pallet truck specialist with a diverse range of models and specifications held in stock for immediate shipping. All trucks are produced under ISO 9002 certification and carry the CE, GS & TÜV quality ratings and a full guarantee.
