Walkie stackers function similarly to forklifts in that they are used to transport and load heavy palletized units. Unlike conventional forklifts, walkie stackers don’t require a license to operate because the operator can simply walk behind while controlling it. The walkie stacker’s electric-powered controls allow operators to direct them as well as lift and lower heavy materials.
Of course, due to their size, walkie stackers are not capable of carrying heavy-duty loads. They are also intended to tread even indoor surfaces and are typically used in warehouses and factory settings to unload palletized units from trucks. Operators can then transport, lift, and place the units in their designated location.
Walkie stackers have a small frame that makes them ideal for navigating heavy materials around congested areas, or through narrow aisles where bulkier forklifts can’t access. Other common job sites for walkie stackers are distribution centers or outdoor worksites with polished surfaces.
