Caterpillar Narrow Reach Forklifts

Caterpillar Narrow Reach Forklifts

Narrow aisle forklifts
Narrow aisle forklifts are normally used in warehousing applications. These forklifts are vital tools in the industry because their small size and extreme maneuverability enable warehouses to use space to maximum storing capacity. They could easily go around aisles that are 1.8 meters wide, whereas typical lift trucks need 3.4 meters of aisle width, at least.

This particular kind of forklift is sub-categorized as "narrow aisle forklifts" and "very narrow aisle forklifts". The first need 2.4 meters - 3 meters in aisle width, while the second can function in a 1.8 meters wide space.

The design of a narrow aisle forklift includes forks positioned at right angles to the body of the truck. The trucks do not need to face the shelves, but instead drive straight down the aisle picking up loads to the side. This particular design feature is the key to their suitability for limited spaces.

To be able to make certain that the forklift is moving in a straight line down the aisle, several very narrow aisle forklifts consist of wire or optical systems. That way, the operator can focus more on the placement and the picking of loads.

These lifts are equipped with cushion tires made from solid rubber. The hard tires perform well on paved, smooth surfaces and concrete floors. Narrow aisle forklifts have electric motors suited for use within indoor environments. Propane-powered models are available also.
