Reach Forklift Truck


Reach trucks
Reach Trucks are designed to work in narrow aisle warehousing spaces.
They have two outer legs that distribute the load weight; with a wheel configuration of two or one wheels per leg. The wheel base of a reach truck is the same length as a normal counter-balance forklift; however the body is more compact.
