End Control Forklifts
AC stand-up end control forklift trucks are common in the material handling industry for their great flexibility. These equipment have superior performance characteristics that are quite similar to sit-down electric lift truck models.
Ideally, these forklift truck models are suitable for warehousing operation environments which have limited space. Their working aisle requirements are normally less than those required of a three-wheel electric forklift truck. These machines are an excellent choice for applications that need frequent on and off access, as their stand-up design is an exceptional feature.
A lot of businesses utilized a reach truck to maintain their storage facilities. These loading machines could arrange finished goods on pallets and materials to be stored or stacked into tall shelving compartments. The reach truck provides easy and safe retrieval of the loaded pallets. It is also a great choice for individuals who prefer to store pallets of products they do not need for immediate use in a way which is both efficient and safe.
The basic reach truck model is equipped with an out-rigging mechanism situated on the front of the truck. A set of telescoping tines that move up and down are mounted to the out-rigging. The forks additionally include a hydraulic system that enables the driver to lift the load and reposition it over the out-riggers. This particular design not only offers much more balance to the overall load, but makes it easier for the reach truck to maneuver into narrow aisles between the storage shelves.
When the selected shelf has been identified, the hydraulic forks swing into action and lower the pallet into the shelving unit, helping to slide the load into place. Usually, a reach truck would easily fit into an aisle that is less than 10 feet wide without problems, so long as there are no other pallets protruding out from the shelving area.
