NEW AND USED REACH TRUCKS : SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS AND CHOICE STRATEGIES.
A reach truck is a type of warehousing equipment, a kind of a self-propelled pallet stacker designed for operation with especially high shelves.
A reach truck is the most sophisticated machine in the entire family of pallet stackers. Just like other similar equipment, it is intended primarily for the implementation of warehousing operations (transportation, placing on the shelves and stacking of goods) and loading and unloading operation. Unlike most of their counterparts, these machines are always self-propelled (driven by an electric motor) and have an operator's cab, which is specially equipped on the chassis. In this way, one can say that a reach truck is something like an intermedium between the actual pallet stacker and a standard forklift.
The main characteristic of the reach truck, which should be distinguished, is a special hoisting mechanism, namely the multi-section telescopic design of its masts. Due to this feature, the maximum operating altitude of some models of these machines can exceed 12 meters. If you add to the above mentioned its load capacity, which can reach three tons, and a fairly high speed of movement (over 10 kph) – as a result, it is one of the best types of warehousing equipment.
