Pallet Level Loaders Provide Relief from Back Problems, Reduce Worker Fatigue and Speed Production


Bricks and related products come in a variety of types, designs, and colors. But they all have one thing in common: they are heavy. The manual work of loading pallets with finished product involves constant lifting, reaching, and bending. In a typical case, bricks being transported on conveyors were unloaded from the waist-high conveyors onto pallets placed on the floor. Once loaded, forklift trucks move the pallets to storage. Each pallet contains over 400 bricks with loaded pallets weighing in at 2000 pounds. Loading the pallets was time consuming, hard on worker's backs, and led to frequent back complaints, worker fatigue, lost time, and ongoing productivity issues.
