End Control Forklifts
The stand-up end control forklift is an extremely flexible machine and is common in the material handling industry. These equipment have superior performance features which are quite comparable to sit-down electric forklift models.
Ideally, these forklift truck models are suited for warehousing operation environments which have limited space. Their working aisle requirements are often less than those required of a three-wheel electric forklift truck. These equipment are an excellent option for applications that require regular on and off access, because their stand-up design is an excellent feature.
A lot of businesses utilized a reach truck to maintain their storage facilities. These loading devices can arrange finished goods on pallets and materials to be stored or stacked into tall shelving compartments. The reach truck offers simple and safe retrieval of the loaded pallets. It is also a great alternative for those who prefer to store pallets of products they do not require yet in a way that is both efficient and safe.
All basic reach truck models will have an out-rigging mechanism secured to the front of the equipment. Telescoping tines are mounted to the out-rigging and can move down and up. The tines additionally have a hydraulic system which enables the operator to pick up the load and move it over the out-riggers. This particular design not only gives much more balance to the whole load, but makes it easier for the reach truck to move into narrow aisles between the storage shelves.
When the reach truck finds the shelves which are selected for the pallet, the hydraulics allow the forks to swing into place and lower the pallet into the shelving, sliding the pallet into position. Typically, a reach truck would easily fit into an aisle which is less than 10 feet wide with no trouble, as long as there are no other pallets protruding out from the shelving area.
