When a pallet truck has a fold up platform for the operator it should not be used in confined spaces. The operator should fold it up and walk.
Usually it's easier to have a pallet truck trailing behind the operator but in a confined space such as that shown above it's often better to turn around and face the truck to increase operator visibility.Disclaimer.
