Raymond's New Pallet Guard Virtually Eliminates Pallet Damage from Lift Trucks
GREENE, N.Y. - The Raymond Corporation introduces the Pallet Dawg(TM) pallet guard for all lift trucks with class 2 fork carriage. The Pallet Dawg is available exclusively through Raymond dealers. For organizations that move pallets with a lift truck, the Pallet Dawg virtually eliminates damaged pallets, related costly repairs and wood splinters cluttering warehouses and loading docks. The Pallet Dawg directs a lift truck's impact force to the center stringer of the pallet, instead of the top boards. This prevents damage to the first crossboard and minimizes wood debris, which can lead to wheel and tire damage and sudden load instability. Manufactured of lightweight, high-density and impact-resistant material, the Pallet Dawg easily attaches to any class 2 carriage in minutes with a 9/16-inch socket and wrench. "There are 1.9 billion pallets in use today in the United States, most of which are constructed of wood. Once damaged, Grade A pallets lose 70% of their value," says Raymond Sales/Marketing Manager Bill McCampbell. "Considering one wooden pallet costs as much as $8, the cost savings over time will be substantial for all Pallet Dawg users, both shipping and receiving product. For example, if customers receive a damaged pallet and have to re-palletize it, then the shipper of the product becomes responsible for the cost." In addition to reduced pallet damage and related costs, the Pallet Dawg improves distribution-chain efficiency by preventing delays due to damaged pallets being caught in racking systems or automated assembly/packaging lines.
