WHAT IS A REACH TRUCK?

A reach truck is a narrow-aisle, right-angle stacking forklift designed for unit load handling with rack interface. These lift trucks are meant to operate in narrow aisles and are best for storing and retrieving pallets in racks. These lift trucks are designed to maximize unit load capacity by narrowing aisles and promoting product throughput. Reach trucks are categorized as Class 2 lift trucks in material handling.

With narrow aisles, you can store the same amount of goods in less space, or store more in the space you have, giving you more rack faces and more access to stored goods, with less travel time between picks. By utilizing narrow aisles, you may be able to increase up to 80% of your existing storage space.
