A pallet jack is a relatively simple device that allows a person to pick up and move a palletized load whose weight may be several times that of the operator. A typical manual pallet jack consists of a small frame that supports two low forks that are designed to fit under a pallet. A handle, or tiller, connected to the frame provides a method to push or pull the jack, to steer it, and a way to hydraulically elevate the forks.
