    Shortened Pallet Jack by 18 inches

    The pallet jack I purchased on sale came 48″ long and I need it to be 30″ to fit under my Machine Tools; therefore, the purpose of this project is to shorten my pallet jack by 18″.

    Possibly I could have purchased a shorter one but where is the fun in that?

    The fun challenge of this project was to cut apart and then re-weld back together a ‘shorter’ pallet jack, while disassembling as few parts as possible.

    Other than taking off the handle to make it easier to flip over on the welding table, the only parts I needed to remove where 2 pins and their snap-rings.

    It was a fun project.
