Reach trucks are particularly intended to operate in tight passageways in warehouses and storing facilities. They let you load up products at a greater height and increase the use of your facilities storage space. A reach truck allows for the forklift to extend forward into the racking to either pick or store palletized loads. Some reach trucks can go up to two pallets deep into drive in/drive through racking. The scissors on these reach forklifts are extremely heavy duty and extend and retract by the push of a button. To do this, straddle arms extend forward to keep the reach forklift from flipping over, or a counterbalance is utilized.
Because the straddle arms extend forward, you must be careful not to bump the lower level of racking while picking or storing pallets. The capacity of used reach forklifts varies depending on the lift height and the length of the scissors.
