A pallet jack, otherwise called a pallet truck,[1] pallet pump, pump truck, dog, [1] or jigger[1] is an apparatus used to lift and move pallets. Bed jacks are the most essential type of a forklift[2] and are expected to move beds inside a distribution center.

The jack is guided by a ’tiller’ like switch that additionally goes about as the siphon handle for raising the jack. A little handle on the tiller discharges the water driven liquid, making the forks lower. The front wheels inside the finish of the forks are mounted on switches appended to linkages that go to switches connected to the jack cylinder. As the water driven jack at the ’tiller’ end is raised, the connections power the wheels down, raising the forks vertically over the front wheels, raising the heap upward until it clears the floor. The bed is just lifted enough to clear the floor for consequent travel. In many cases, bed jacks are utilized to move and sort out beds inside a trailer, particularly when there is no forklift truck access or accessibility.

A jack normally has controlling wheels in the front, while each fork for the most part has either a solitary wheel or two bogie wheels.
