    Default atomic pallet jack

    12 months ago USS Nimitz ---CVN 68--entered maintenance withdrawal from service at naval base Kitsap--a few miles to my north

    the pallet jack pictured here was removed from Nimitz ordnance service
    it incorporates bespoke build features typically found in military material handling assets--builder of this unit---Wesley International of Georgia

    --specifics of this implement include:

    derating from 10,000 lb non-mil to 6000 lb mil spec
    frame thickness of 0.325 in 8 inch c-channel hot rolled alloy
    walking beam forward bogies--3 inch diameter urethane load rollers
    tie down weldments on A frame

    empty service weight about twice non-mil counterpart

    I buy these units to chop--tines are adapted for fork extensions
    which serve my needs better than longer forks in tight aisles/shipping containers

    walking beam construct is meaningful when duty application is over non-skid plating, carrier decks, rolling blue water,

    for comparison--BT pallet jack components of 6000 lb unit

    plate thickness 4mm
    load roller 82 mm single

    BT is swedish builder of exceptional quality--acquired by Toyota in 2000
    chopped BT forks are my go to extensions--light, unbendable swedish steel

    I gave my neighbor a toyota pallet jack to convert into a 3 point fork attachment for the back of his tractor. It was like you said, made in sweeden.
