Narrow Aisle Forklifts
The narrow aisle forklift is designed particularly to fit down narrow aisles in a warehouse setting. These equipment enable business owners the opportunity to increase their storage capacity to keep their goods and materials. Even smaller aisles are capable of fitting a forklift through them. Narrow aisle forklifts are famous for their maneuverability and not much space is required to move a narrow aisle lift truck. Their design has allowed them to move without a lot of space because of the fact that the majority of objects that hinder movement have been squished up the main lift truck body in their design.
These forklifts have a weakness in that they are quite slow. These forklifts would not cut it if you need it to move goods across large distances. This issue can be solved easily if you additionally have access to a standard lift truck. Some companies prefer to use the narrow aisle forklift to move the load to a central location. These objects are then handed off to a standard forklift that will take it the bulk of the distance. Usually, narrow aisle forklifts are unable to move as much weight so they are just effective for smaller loads.
