4 Categories of Bishamon Forklifts

Bishamon manufactures 4 different classes of forklifts. They include:

  • Lift Tables
  • Pallet Handling
  • Mobile Handling
  • Skid Lifts

 

 

1. Lift Tables

A lift table is a platform deck that uses a scissor mechanism to lift or lower goods. They are usually used to raise and place large, heavy loads a fairly small distance.

 

Advantages of a Lift Table

  • Loading & Unloading: Lift tables are a class of forklift that is great for loading and unloading products in a warehouse setting. The scissor lift mechanism can be adjusted to either stay low to place items on a truck or raise items to be stored in a hard-to-reach location.
  • Transporting Goods: If you need to transport goods to another part of your warehouse and then store them at great heights, a lift table is especially useful, especially if the items are heavy.
  • Increased Productivity & Reduction of Worker Strain: Lift tables will help you get rid of unproductive lifting, bending, and stretching that will eventually lead to worker fatigue and injury.

2. Pallet Handling

A pallet is a flat wooden or metal platform that is used to store goods so that they can be moved or lifted with a forklift. A pallet has both a top and bottom deck which gives it more stability than a skid, which doesn’t have a bottom deck. There are different types of pallet handling equipment. They include pallet trucks and pallet positioners.

 

 

Pallet Trucks

A pallet truck is the most basic type of forklift. It is designed to move and lift pallets.

Advantages of Pallet Trucks

Pallet Trucks:

  • Work well in warehouse environments
  • Allow an individual to perform a task of moving product that would normally require multiple people
  • Save time and effort by doing the heavy lifting for you

 

 

Pallet Positioners

Pallet positioners help you handle, lift, and rotate pallets more effectively and ergonomically.

Advantages of Pallet Positioners:

Pallet Positioners:

  • Allow you to handle, lift, and rotate pallet loads with a minimum amount of bending, reaching, stretching, or walking around
  • Reduce injuries
  • Increase productivity
  • Increase work speed
