A reach truck is a heavy equipment mostly used by companies that have warehouses where bulky or heavy commodities or items are stored as they await distribution to other destinations. It is important in the loading of cargo onto or from a truck. Driven by operators they are powered by either gasoline or propane gas in some cases. Lately, there have been electric ones as well.
In order to be able to maneuver its way within the factories, the reach truck is designed in a very small but sturdy size with a very heavy base to give it stability. This stability is vital in giving it a balance especially when lifting very heavy objects. The machine comes with a set of telescopic forks right in front that is used to pick up objects from the trucks or the ground.
Since this equipment has been in use in factories for a very long time, there are many companies that have been in the fore front in manufacturing and distributing the same. Notable names in this sector include Caterpillar, Still and Hyster just to name but a few. It is also worth noting that the machine always comes with a hydraulic system operated by the driver that is instrumental in lifting objects onto shelves or to waiting trucks.
Choosing a reach truck
When looking for a good reach truck to buy, you need to look at some important features. One of the most important specifications worth considering includes the height that the outrigger of the machine can cover when lifting any object. This is particularly important because it will determine how far it can lift any object.
Without this machine in a warehouse or factory, the process of loading trucks with cargo or products can be very hectic. It is therefore advisable to have one that is easy to maintain and service. Perhaps that might call for a choice of a familiar and popular reach truck brand whose replacement parts can be readily available.
