Benefits Of Reach Trucks
The reach truck forklift refers to the ability of the fork carriage to ‘reach’ out past the legs and into the racking. This designs give the reach truck certain unique advantages over counter-balance forklifts.
Maximize Warehouse Space
In addition, the smaller turning radius of the reach trucks allows for easier movement within the narrow aisles and tight spaces of warehouses. This provides an additional benefit to companies because they are able to maximize the space of their warehouses by having narrower aisles and more rows of products.
The reach trucks are designed specifically to work in small spaces and narrow aisles in warehouses. This is because the reach trucks have the ability to pull the load back to itself so that the pallet do not protrude as much when compared to a counter-balance forklift.
Features of Reach Forklifts
Types Of Reach Trucks
The stand-up reach trucks are the simplest models of reach trucks. The forks are designed such that they can slide directly underneath pallets and transported to a new location to be unloaded easily.
Also known as the double-deep reach truck, the double-reach trucks are similar to the stand-up reach trucks and come equipped with telescopic forks. These forks are long enough to retrieve and unload goods two pallets deep within a single rack.
The straddle reach trucks as the name suggests are able to not only slide under pallets but also grab onto the sides of the pallet.
