Device reduces damage from forklifts
Dec 1, 2008 12:00 PM
The Pallet Dawg from BST Technologies is a device that attaches to a forklift carriage, positioned between the forks to help prevent damage to pallets and product.
When a forklift approaches a pallet, the center runner of the pallet contacts the impact area of the Pallet Dawg. The unit absorbs the shock rather than the forks against the top board of the pallet, helping to extend pallet life cycle.
The device also reduces product damage in instances where the top board of the pallet is broken or missing. Likewise, the forks and carriage will not come in contact with product that overhangs or extends beyond edge of pallet.
Weighing five pounds, the Pallet Dawg does not significantly change the load and lift characteristics of a forklift.
