A counterbalanced sit-down forklift also goes by the name of a standard lift truck. It is the type of vehicle that most people picture in their mind when they imagine a forklift or a lift truck. This machine come in any of the tire types like for example pneumatic or solid options in addition to different kinds of fuel like electric, diesel and gas models. It has a variety of attachment options, lift heights and weight capacities.

Most warehouses use the smaller 3000 lb. to 4000 lb. lift trucks. If you run a small operation and need just one truck, this size of forklift is a practical and ideal option. The standard forklift is a wide aisle truck which requires at least 11' aisles to turn in. The width of the aisle is determined by the turn radius, the truck size as well as the load size. Attachments and options that are available include fork shifts, side shifts, slip sheet attachments and hydraulic clamps.

Reach Truck
The reach truck is also referred to as a straddle reach, double-deep reach and stand-up reach. The reach truck is a narrow aisle truck particularly designed for racked pallet storage. This specific unit measures 8' to 10'. The reach truck consists of telescoping forks and utilizes a hydraulic scissors-type mechanism as well as outriggers in front. The hydraulic scissors type of mechanism enables you to pick up the load and retract it over the outriggers. This particular design allows the operator to turn in a narrower aisle by reducing the overall load length of the truck.

Double-deep reach trucks enable the operator to store pallets in a two-deep double-deep rack system. The outcome has provided a specially extended reach mechanism. Reach trucks are made just for racking areas. They do not work well for loading trucks or for quickly transporting loads over distances. These kinds of reach trucks make particular easy work of some specific heavy-duty operations.
