Layer Pickers: 5 Types That with Your Forklift Can Replace Hand Stacking

Layer pickers first burst onto the material handling scene in the mid-1990s as a solution to one simple problem: the need to quickly and efficiently build diverse pallets of products. The gradual introduction of diverse products and increased demand over time has led many companies to abandon the traditional method of hand-building pallets in favor of using layer pickers.

As the name implies, layer pickers can “pick” multiple layers of product at one time, assuming the product is relatively homogenous. This ability makes them a perfect fit for the beverage and distribution industries where packages can be easily stacked on top of one another due to the layers of the product being flat, rigid, and rectangular. As a former employee in the beverage industry, I cannot begin to tell you how much of a life (and back) saver these attachments can be.

Posted on

Toyota Forklifts are built to be reliable, but the life of all material handling equipment will eventually come to an end. As an operations manager, you’re in control of when to get new machines into your operation. And as an operator, you know when your forklift is breaking down way too often.
