Gravity Conveyor for Pallet Jacks

Product Description

When you don’t have a conventional fork lift, or when space won’t allow fork truck access, you can use a hand pallet jack to pick-up or drop-off heavy loads. This custom made gravity roller conveyor uses 2.5″ diameter rollers for loads up to 3,000 lbs. and 3.5″ diameter rollers for loads up to 8,000 lbs. A ramp must be used to gain elevation and provide a level surface for the pallet load to be at the same level as the pallet jack forks. If a ramp is not available, these conveyors can be placed in a pit in the floor, thereby making the load at floor level.

Specialty Equipment builds conveyors with structural steel channel frames and supports welded together to create a one-piece superstructure, the most rugged standard in the industry.

Description of Operation

  • This unit must have a ramp-up then-level surface used with the application
  • If a ramp is not available, a pit in the floor will suffice to mount the conveyor
  • The pallet must have bottom runners (skis) in the direction of travel
  • The operator pushes the pallet jack up into the pick up station.
  • The operator captures the pallet load from the roller surface
  • The pallet jack moves back down the ramp
  • The same functions are used for dropping off a pallet load.
  • If mounted in a pit, the operation is simply a drive-in, drive-out process.
