Pallet Jack Scales



Pallet Weigh
Pallet Weigh Plus

Fairbanks Pallet Jack Scales combine the functionality of an extremely rugged pallet jack with the incredible accuracy of a Fairbanks’ scale. The Pallet Weigh scale is easy to maneuver into space-limited areas. The simple operation keeps work flowing in fast paced environments. The scale meets, or exceeds, industry standards for accuracy, durability and repeatability.




Why would someone want to purchase a Pallet Weigh Scale?


The Pallet Weigh and Pallet Weigh Plus scales are a great addition to Fairbanks’ expansive product set. When our customers need to weigh pallets (skids) or tote containers and they also have any/all of the following requirements, the Pallet Weigh is the answer:

·        They have limited floor space.

·        They also need a pallet jack.

·        Customer does not own a fork truck, has multiple fork trucks or simply doesn’t want to modify the carriage of their fork truck.

·        A floor scale simply isn’t practical.

·        Weighing on the go in the best solution for their fast-paced operation.


What problems will the Pallet Weigh solve for the customer?


A single product to move pallets, prevent overloading, provide accurate weights, weigh on-the-go, sum weighments, count products (Pallet Weigh Plus), print weights/totals (Pallet Weigh Plus) and is approved for NTEP applications (Pallet Weigh Plus).



Fairbanks Pallet Weigh Series


Fairbanks Pallet Weigh scale (4000 Series) is a non-NTEP pallet jack scale designed for most industrial warehouse uses where pallet jack/skid steers are used. This scale was designed to increase efficiency and simplify the logistic process. Utilizing a single device to both move and weigh product saving both time and space. It can be used to check incoming goods, determine shipping weights and avoid costly overloads. The Pallet Weigh has up to a 5000 pound capacity which will handle almost any warehousing need. It has a tight tolerance of 0.1% (of applied weight) which translates to precise weight readings. It is powered using four (4) “AA” alkaline batteries and with normal use (about 5 weighments a day) these batteries should last about one year. The instrument is designed for low power consumption and has automatic shut -off to preserve battery life. Fairbanks Scales’ Pallet Weigh scale combines the controlling function of a very accurate scale with the mobility and flexibility of a hand pallet jack (truck).

The Pallet Weigh Plus scales improve productivity and streamline the product management process by providing a single device that transports product and captures an accurate weight, saving both time and space. This scale is a perfect tool for checking incoming/outgoing shipments, dosing/mixing, and parts counting (with piece weight sampling). An easily integrated battery pack comes standard on all Pallet Weigh Plus scales.


The Pallet Weigh Plus was designed specifically for mobile weighing applications. This scale is extremely easy to use; the operator simply lifts the pallet and the weight is displayed on the backlit LCD display. The rugged frame integrates four extremely accurate load cells providing the most accurate and repeatable weighments by any fork truck scale manufactured. This scale also integrates several handy features, such as counting and summing. The counting feature will come in handy during inventory, while the summing feature is a huge benefit when loading trucks, and it is convenient when tracking is required.


The Pallet Weigh Plus instrument is constructed from a highly-durable, impact-resistant, ABS plastic enclosure specifically designed for maximum protection in mobile weighing applications. The five front panel keys are multi-functional. When in the weigh mode the function is dictated by either a long or short press of each key.

Motorized Long Deck Carts

Motorized Long Deck Carts
What the heck are long deck carts? Well these carts typically have very large platform decks, sometimes up to 16 feet long, to allow operators to safely transport loads throughout their facility. Even though the deck is long, the material being moved can also extend beyond both ends of the cart. This requires the controls are mounted on the side of the cart. Some of the added options include:
  • Powered conveyors that run off the batteries
  • Gravity fed conveyors
  • Shelving
  • Customized top to hold special tooling or materials
  • Dual controls to operate the cart either from the front or rear

Pony Express Motorized Tugger Solves an Ergonomic Problem
A manufacturer of cabinets needed a better ergonomic solution to pick and transport materials from their stock room to the assembly area. They also wanted to train multiple carts together to increase the productivity of this operation.  Ability to navigate tight corners, narrow aisles and high reliability were also critical design metrics. After an onsite evaluation by Electro Kinetic Engineers, a custom hitch was designed to train up to 3 carts utilizing the Pony Express 1062 motorized tugger.

  Palletizing used to be a back-breaking job, that is before the PalletPal


The The original PalletPal Spring Level Loader was introduced by Southworth in 1988 and continuously improved since then.

It’s the automatic, self-leveling, spring pallet leveler that makes loading and unloading pallets faster, safer and easier. The PalletPal uses a system of springs and shock absorbers to lower and raise loads as boxes are added or removed from pallets. Adding a turntable top allows nearside loading and unloading. No more bending or reaching!

Where Should You Place an Indoor Emergency Shower and Eyewash Station?

February 13th, 2020

Where Should You Place an Indoor Emergency Shower


Eyewash Station?

Working with machinery such as saws, grinders or mills may cause dirt or debris to fly into someone’s eye. In fact, it’s the most common workplace eye injury. When this happens, or in a chemical splash or burn situation, access to emergency eye wash and shower stations is critical. But, figuring out where to place these stations isn’t always obvious. Here are four tips your customers can use when deciding where to locate vital safety equipment:
    1. Start with ANSI. The ANSI/ISEA Z358.1 standard includes guidelines for location and performance of emergency shower and eye wash stations. Make sure the path to the equipment is clear of obstructions. It’s also wise to install stations on the same level as the hazard – navigating stairs with impaired vision could result in further injury.
    2. Perform a risk assessment to identify nearby hazards. Stations should be installed within 10 seconds reach as a potential hazard – or approximately 55 feet.
    3. Make sure eyewash and shower stations are extremely visible.
    4. Make sure there are enough safety shower stations to accommodate
    5. there are enough safety shower stations to accommodate anyone injured in an emergency incident.
