Pallet Puller

Postby Terry » Tue Apr 07, 2009 8:38 pm

I have had some straps made up almost certainly of interest to those who use their van for work.
Basically it is a strap with a snap hook each end and 50 cms in a re-inforced D ring, with a 'floating' D ring in the middle.
Image
Whenever you load up with more than a single pallet, once the fork truck has the pallet nearest the rear doors off, you then need to pull the 2nd and/or 3rd pallet to the rear doors. Most people use an old airline strap with a claw hook end, these can easily slip & do a lot of damage (they go like rockets).
So with your safety in mind (well mine really :wink: ) I have had these made.
You take the hook round the back of the centre support of the pallet, hook it into the D ring and then the same at the fork truck loadgaurd/blades/whatever, even a small tree if you are desperate.
Image
Then the forktruck can pull away in safety. (if you are using a tree you will have to drive forward, trees are a bit slow,strong, but slow).
If the centre support is naff or its a very heavy pallet run the strap round the whole pallet & hook into the 'floating' D ring. Then you can pull your pallet out.
Image
Its 10 metres long (its a long way round one of the old 48" pallets), 5000kgs breaking strain, more than you'll ever need to move a pallet, and it will even double up as a tow rope.
I've had them made a pretty yellow colour so you can't see them against a yellow floor, and to ensure they get very dirty, very quickly.
If you want one in a different colour (for those of you with a yellow floor)/length/strength/more D rings, e.t.c. let me know it'll take a day or 2 more to get to you (so quick they couldn't possibly be made in China :D ). Joking aside they are made here in the U.K.by a company that wants repeat orders.

I am asking £19.50 plus P & P each, different colours, same price.
Longer, more D rings e.t.c just a little dearer

My pallets are always empty! I wonder how many I can get in a mk6 swb shr. I had 17 in a mk5 similar body size but there were a lot of small ones from paving.

You know those blue pallets that belong to Chep - do they pay for their return? Otherwise how do they get them back? I see loads in skips and get offered them when I'm collecting pallets but I won't take them as they are 'returnable' but none of the builders say they get taken back.

IRMA999,
Yes but we would/might have to argue about VAT :?. I'll p.m. the number now.

Niel
I did check on line. (I have a set of parcel scales) it comes out at 2.46 kgs, so £8.22, thats bl**dy steep. (Thanks for posting that list though, it'll show I am not ripping any one off !)
I'm gonna check with a mate who works in a courier company, I am hoping they'd do it for less.
