Pedalift. Say it with me: pe-dal-lift. When you break it down like that, this product makes a lot of sense. It’s a lift you raise with a pedal. And that's what this blog is all about -- making sense of the steel frame pedalift products we now sell. Although they are considered part of the lift truck family, these items provide a much-needed kind of convenience around the workplace. But what makes them different from their other lift truck brethren?
Join us as we explore what makes these products an essential part of your everyday work!
Like other lift trucks, pedalifts let you raise and lower product without causing strain on your body. These handy machines take on the hard work of picking up heavy loads and putting them where needed. Commonly used in packaging plants, industrial warehouses, and other facilities, pedalifts are the next iteration of convenient warehouse machinery.
When choosing a steel frame pedalift for your lifting needs, you've got some great options. Although all of these are framed with the superior durability of steel, our pedalifts feature several different designs.
First, decide if your lifting needs requires forks or a platform. Forks are great for handling skids and pallets, while platforms lift boxes with ease. Whichever you choose, you'll have a capacity of 750 lbs. at your disposal.
The second decision you'll have to make is whether you want a two-wheel or four-wheel steel frame pedalift. A two-wheel pedalift will let you cart your load around like a hand truck. A four-wheel can be used this way as well, but its additional wheels let you handle much bulkier loads. One key difference is that the two-wheel version makes contact with the floor, while the four-wheel sits at a minimum of 5.75 inches off the ground. So consider where you are lifting from and where you're lifting to when choosing your steel frame pedalift.
You'll next have to choose between a foot pump or winch operated pedalift. The hydraulic foot pump version has a foot release pedal that eases loads to the ground. The hand-operated winch version is also an option if you want to get more hands-on with your lifting. Both are great choices and will let you lift either 40 inches or 54 inches off the ground.
Now that you know everything there is to know about our steel frame pedalift products, get one for your warehouse. Or two, if you need one with forks and one with a platform. They're sure to add a huge amount of convenience to your daily workload!
