Reach truck is very flexible and versatile. Used reach trucks are often equipped with a multi-part telescopic rack that can be pushed in and out. One can thus have the load both in the extended position as a counterbalance to be flexible at different widths of the passageways, the dimensions stated are "widthwise". It is also possible to lift high even if there are ports that are not so high.
Reach trucks are versatile and are widely used in warehouse, distribution and logistics. They are often used in places where there are not so wide trucks, but still high heights are required.
Why you should choose a reach truck
The reach truck is a very versatile and smooth truck.
A reach truck is especially useful for pallet storage. Reach truck has great reach and stability and can have very high lift heights, providing excellent flexibility, load capacity and maneuverability. A lift truck is capable of handling block stacking as well as drive-in "racks" and handling long-haul goods.
The truck is equipped with a tripod that can be pushed in and out like a telescopic shaft. The advantage of the rack rack truck is that you can both have the truck in the extended position, like a counterbalance truck, but it can also move the rack for the forks in the horizontal direction, which is handy in confined spaces. These trucks have a load capacity of 1.4 tonnes and a range of more than 12 meters in height.
If during the work, the stand is fully extended, the load is outside the truck's own support area, just like when using a counterbalance truck. On the other hand, if the stand is in the pushed-in position, the load is inside the truck's support surface just like a support leg. Just the so-called reach truck together with the narrow-end truck are the most common trucks at all locations around the world just because of its versatility. Many companies have also chosen to use these types of trucks in both refrigeration and freezing warehouses
Reach trucks are only manufactured as electric trucks.
