About the Pallet Return Device

The Pallet Return Device (PRD) is a pallet handling solution or pallet return solution that many operations can benefit from, specifically distribution centers, general warehousing facilities, manufacturing facilities, food and beverage plants, and retail stores. This manual pallet stacking system works to increase the safety of your facility by reducing the risks of handling pallets with a lifting method that reduces musculoskeletal disorders. The unit also reduces the risks of falling pallets because a 'perfect' stack is less prone to tipping over and causing a potentially serious injury. A neat stack also reduces labor costs as laborers no longer have to struggle to make an acceptable stack and fork truck drivers avoid reshaping a stack of pallets when ready to be handled again.

The Pallet Return Device is a product of Automation Plus, a Division of CSF Inc. 

Pallet Return Device is Available in Two Configurations

What People Are Saying About the PRD System

"There is an ergonomic impact to the picker, reduced time for them to build the perfect stack and reduced time for the forklift operator to pull the stack down. No one will have to worry about twisted or bad stacks getting hung up on the rack frames, eliminating a possible risk or tie off requirement. There is an added safety factor to all those below because the movement of the stack out to the edge is controlled as opposed to being gravity (or pushed) and coming to an abrupt stop. We included it as a must have for constructing these new mods so there wasn't a hard measurement for the savings, it will just be part of the overall benefit."
