Power Stacker Buying Guide

Have you been to our power stacker page lately? We have many power stacker products to help you move heavy loads around your warehouse. But which one is right for you? With so many to choose from, picking the right one can seem impossible.

Let A Plus Warehouse help you! Our guide will show you how to choose the best power stacker for your warehouse. It will go over important things like whether you should choose forks or a platform, or whether you want hand-powered or electric. By the end of the guide, you should know exactly what you need.

Power Stacker Capacity

The first thing you should look for is capacity. How much do you need your power stacker to lift? You have many power stackers with varying maximum capacities to choose from.

Think about what you plan on using it for. If your inventory is comprised of smaller products, a powered stacker with a maximum capacity of 500 lbs. can suit you just fine. However, you can find power stackers that can lift up to 2000 lbs., like this high capacity powered stacker, so you’re covered there too.

Power Stacker Height

The maximum height of your powered stacker to-be matters. How high do you need to raise your pallets? Are you stocking several levels of inventory or mostly working close to the ground? You can find power stackers that can reach heights as high as 127”.

Keep in mind that the max lifting height of your powered stacker will affect its capacity. Be sure to double-check how much it can handle while at its highest level and see if it matches up with your needs.

Forks or Platform?

What kinds of loads are you lifting? Are you working with pallets and skids, or some other kind of load? Forks are the standard that lift pallets and skids with ease, while a platform is useful for other loads like cartons. However, many forks are adjustable, so they can work with many different types of pallets and skids. You have a lot of options to explore here!

Hand-Powered or Electric Power Stacker?

This one is a matter of convenience. Electric power stackers are raised and lowered with a button, while the hand-powered one operates using a hand pump. If you expect to use your power stacker all the time, consider getting an electric one so you don’t tire out your arms.

Of course, you could always get the best of both worlds with the combination hand pump and electric stacker. This hybrid power stacker works great for maintenance and commercial applications and is an economical choice for both your wallet and your body.
