What are Reach Trucks Used For?
For companies that deal with large quantities of products, having sufficient storage space is always a primary concern.
To maximise the usage of available area, pallets and goods are usually placed closely and even stacked on top of one another. This creates narrow aisles between the pallets, sometimes making it difficult to access them with conventional forklifts.
In this scenario, a reach truck would be needed as it is designed to navigate through narrow aisles in warehouses. They are simple and easy to operate.
Features of a Reach Truck
Location of Operator in Vehicle
To navigate the narrow aisles, reach trucks are designed to have the driver sit or stand sideways in the vehicle during operation. Not only does this reduce the turning radius and space required for the truck during usage, it provides additional protection for the operator.
Mechanics of Load Lifter
The most significant feature of the reach truck is how the load is lifted and secured within the wheelbase, reducing the length of the load that is left protruding from the vehicle. This compact feature makes it easier to navigate narrow aisles as compared to regular forklifts.
Customisable with Larger Wheels
While reach trucks generally operate best on flat surfaces due to the low ground clearance of the machinery, they can be fitted with larger wheels to improve their movement over different surfaces.
Benefits of Buying Used Reach Trucks
More Affordable and Cost-Effective
Compared to brand new forklifts, our refurbished units are much more affordable and perform just as well. On the other hand, if you require a forklift for an extended period, purchasing a refurbished unit is more cost effective compared to renting.
