The Wesco 272175 hard rubber high visibility pallet truck chock is yellow and can be placed under the steering wheels of
a pallet truck to hold it still in a moving truck or trailer. The chock is made of rubber, which resists slipping, wear,
and weather. It has an incline for rolling the wheels onto the chock to secure the truck. The chock has a handle for
carrying. The pallet truck chock weighs 3.4 lb. and measures 11.75 x 2 x 14 inches (W x H x D). (W is width, the
horizontal distance from left to right; H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; D is depth, the
horizontal distance from front to back.)
Pallet trucks, also known as pallet jacks, skid jacks, and pump trucks, are used to lift and transport pallets or skids
of goods. Pallet trucks can include a swivel pump handle, a squeeze trigger, two forks, and wheels for maneuverability,
and typically contain a hydraulic cylinder or a battery-powered motor to raise and lower the forks. Some pallet trucks
have an adjustable push rod on the bottom of each fork, allowing the user to modify the height. Pallet trucks can be
used in warehouses, storerooms, shipping facilities, and a variety of industrial environments.
Wesco manufactures material handling equipment. The company, founded in 1948, is headquartered in North Wales, PA.
