Reach trucks are designed predominantly for warehouse operation. Reach trucks or forklifts provide huge height lift capacity with the ability to move dynamically in small spaces.
The forklifts are referred to as reach trucks due to the ability of the fork carriage to move from the legs into warehouse racking. This extensive reach and lift capacity allows for these forklifts to lift materials to heights in excess of 10m whilst in compact spaces. This makes reach forklifts an attractive product for warehouse owners as they can fit more material in warehouses without worrying too much about forklift pathways.
The stabilising legs and batteries within a reach truck negate the need for any counterbalance weight within the truck construct.
More innovative reach forklift manufacturers have redesigned the seating position for operators for easier operator vision. You will find these forklifts having a tilting cab mechanism. An alternative to a tilting cab mechanism is having an open overhead guard, which some manufactures have adopted instead.
For enhanced navigation, some reach forklifts are fitted with cameras on the fork and accompanying LCD screens to enable better operation and manoeuvrability.
Due to overhead guard designs, low under carriage clearance, electric power systems and a collection of other specs, reach forklifts tend to be most efficient when used indoors as opposed to outdoors.
