Reach Fork Lift Truck
The name is so called because the mast is moved forwards or reached out to pick up the load. For travelling, the load is reached back and carried within the wheelbase. This allows greater manoeuvrability in areas where space is restricted. Suitable for use on substantially firm smooth and level surfaces (i.e. inside warehouses, etc.)
Loading, unloading, stacking materials and other goods (generally contained on pallets).
Often seen in:
General warehousing. Common in any industrial unit with level and stable flooring.
