Features of a Reach Truck
Types Of Reach Trucks
Reach trucks are typically available as ‘sit-down’ or ‘stand-up’ trucks.
- Sit-down trucks: Driver sits down sideways
- Stand-up trucks: Driver is standing
These are some common types of reach trucks:
Pantograph Reach Trucks
These trucks are equipped with a scissor design mechanism that allows the driver to stack pallets by moving them upwards and forward. As these machines are to be driven close to the rack for loading, the rack should not have bars at the bottom and pallets should be placed on the floor.
Moving Mast Reach Truck
As their name suggests, moving mast reach trucks have masts that can be moved forward to load goods. These machines have a greater ground clearance due to their wheels that have a larger diameter. Thus, they are more versatile and can be used at docks as well.
Double-reach trucks, otherwise known as double-deep reach trucks, are equipped with telescopic forks. These forks are long enough to retrieve and unload goods two pallets deep within a single rack.
Reach Straddle Truck
This machine is a unique type of reach truck that is able to slide under pallets and grab onto the sides of the pallet. To use this reach truck effectively, stacks of pallets should be placed some distance apart.
