    Default Pallet jack to move a pallet jack to move a machine....

    VMC on skates, but way too heavy to push by hand.... I usually use electric pallet jack as "tug"...but in this case the forks were too short to get under the machine base. So used a manual pallet jack what would get under and then the electric to get under the pallet jack... it actually worked quite well...

    I recall a previous post where looking for a higher capacity pallet jack.

    This popped up the other day, and I these odd longer forks as well:

    Next time, bolt a trailer coupling head to your manual pallet jack, hook it up to your truck, and offer free delivery to your customer !

    I am surprised it did not just spin it's wheels since the load seems to be forward of the drive axle. It shows I have never used a power pallet jack and do not understand the adhesion of the tires.

    Round here the used pallet truck dealers like to post photos on their Craigslist adds that look kinda like that.

    Wow that brings back some memories. I used to use one of those to load 30-40 trailers a night with paper for that big red office supply company. If you turned them sideways you could move 3 pallets of paper at a time at just over 2000lbs per pallet (for 20lb weight 8 1/2 x 11 sheets).
