Motorized Pallet Truck
The Walkie-Rider, Rider or Walkie is a Motorized Pallet Truck that is essentially a motorized version of a pallet jack. They come in both "Walkie" models as well as "Rider" versions.
Like what the name implies, the walkie model is designed for the operator to walk alongside with the unit as they transport loads. The Rider model on the other hand, uses a small platform wherein the operator stands on. The rider models are ideal for frequent moving of loads over extended distances in warehouses and manufacturing applications. They are extremely maneuverable and fast.
It is not recommended to pick up and transport unstable or tall loads since there are no safety cages on these models. A rider could be the right answer if you are looking for a cheap way of transporting cargo from one place to another. If though, you should transport heavy loads short distances, and prefer to utilize a more employee-friendly unit rather than a pallet jack, the walkie model can be the right choice.
An Order Selector also goes by the name of Order picker. This machinery is specially designed for manual handling of less-than-pallet-load quantities in racking. There are fixed forks attached to a platform in the Man-up design. This platform elevates both the operator and the load with a purpose to facilitate manual loading and unloading from racking areas.
Usually, the order selector is a very narrow aisle vehicle which can operate in smaller aisles. They are extremely handy pieces of equipment in cycle counting situations as well as in physical inventories. Order selectors are available in lift heights up to 40 feet high, though models which range in the 20 to 30 foot range are a lot more common.
