Coal Pallet Lift for 1.25 tons?

PostBy: daluds On: Mon Oct 17, 2011 6:12 pm

I have 6-7 1.25 ton pallets of coal delivered each year, and store under my deck with gravel floor. This year the delivery guy had a hard time positioning them under the deck so I would like to move them. Any recommendation on pallet lifts for a gravel floor? I found this one:

I can make one out of car lifts assuming its cheaper than buying one.

Thanks,

Dave

handles evenly distributed loads up to 2,000 lbs. (2,000 lbs. at 12" horizontal load center and 1,500 lbs. at 15" horizontal load center).

That pallet is over 2400 lbs...
and if you have any sort of grade good luck...
What was the delivery truck using, a piggyback...

Need some pix of the location and access...
If the delivery truck has the proper equipment...
you should not have to move the pallets...
That said...
a concrete pad and a plain old pallet jack woud suffice...

I agree with the concrete pad. I don't care how big the tires are a single human isn't going to have any fun at all moving one and a quarter ton across gravel.

Here are some pictures, but noticed the pallets are positioned fine for the winter. Besides, wouldn't be able to get the lift between the pallets.

WARNING, WARNING !! - only good for 2000 lbs. Won't handle 2400 lbs. Heavier duty ones for 2500 lbs are availableand about $1000.00 They make one good for 4000 lbs but it is motorize and costs $6-7000.00.

Better off pouring a concrete pad and buying a good used standard pallet jack. You can find good used pallet jacks for $150 to $250.00.
