Reach trucks

« Back to Glossary Index

Reach trucks – handling equipment generally used in warehouses – have front outer legs which enable better weight distribution, and this means, they are smaller than forklifts, they also have extendible forks and can therefore work in narrow aisles and tighter spaces.
The lifting masts of reach trucks are often higher, as they are designed to be typically used in high-racking warehouses.
