Narrow aisle reach trucks, or used narrow aisle forklifts, are most commonly used for moving pallet loads from dock areas to storage racks, and can travel in aisles that are half the normal width.  Aisles can be placed closer together for additional storage without sacrificing the ability to maneuver a forklift throughout.  Their weight capacities range from 3,000 to 3,500 lbs.


Used narrow aisle reach trucks from ASI come with a 30 day ASI guarantee, and include manufacturers such as Hyster, Crown, and Clark.


In 1954, a British company developed what they claimed to be the very first narrow aisle reach truck. This was a breakthrough in forklift technology and the way distribution centers were designed. Aisles could now be closer together, allowing for more dense storage. With the added density, facilities can store significantly more product in the same amount of area, while still being able to maneuver the forklift. (click here to view entire article)



Very narrow aisle forklifts can operate in aisle widths as small as three feet plus the depth of the pallet. When compared to a typical 12’ aisle of a standard forklift, a very narrow aisle forklift uses 40% less floor space. This means that the same storage facility can have 40% more inventory in the same amount of space being utilized prior.


As you can see, narrow aisle forklifts are ideal for maximizing storage density. This can save your company a significant amount of money, especially if considering moving to a larger facility. Need help choosing forklifts, or do you want some advice on rearranging your aisle for maximum efficiency? Give ASI a call today, our dedicated sales team will help you find the right lift equipment for your operation. We can also provide CAD drawings and installation services to help you re-organize your facility.
