Reach Trucks For Sale

Reach trucks are generally seen to sit in a specialised subsection of the forklift market, allowing for ease of use in warehouses where aisles are narrow and pallets and other items need to be reached through the use of extendable forks, which are found on this type of machine.

Indoor models usually take advantage of electric motors for quiet and clean operation, while there are ones with a significantly larger reach intended for outdoor operations, offering the ability to carry heavier loads, including containers.

Reach trucks are defined by a number of features which for certain organisations will make them an advantageous acquisition.

Models from manufacturers such as Linde will benefit from solid tyres for lower maintenance and ease of use on concrete warehouse floors, as well as things such as optional glass roof panels, which give operators an unparalleled view of the loads they are lifting even when they are high above their heads.

Comfort can be taken into account through the inclusion of things like integrated seat suspension, while all good reach trucks should offer falling-object protection, as this can be a commonly encountered hazard.

The capabilities of smaller reach trucks can vary, with the most compact models being able to handle loads of up to a tonne, while the largest variants at this segment of the market can handle 2.5 tonnes or more, depending on the model in question.

Reach height will also vary, with some reach trucks designed for warehouse use capable of operating heights of up to 13 or 14 metres, which should be more than enough to accommodate most needs.

A reach stacker is a much larger type of reach truck which falls into this category and is often used to manage cargo in the shipping industry.

Using a hydraulic mast, a reach stacker is quickly becoming the preferred choice for many organisation, because it makes it possible to arrange containers in rows that are four deep, making more efficient use of the available space as a result.

Reach stackers will offer benefits such as hydraulically adjustable cabs for better visibility and comfort, efficient diesel engines for lower fuel costs and long service cycles that make maintenance a smaller burden for owners to bear.

As with standard reach trucks, some reach stackers have the hallmarks of forklift vehicles, while others have an angled boom to provide elevation. As well as making light work of containers, reach stacker trucks can also manage other equipment mounted on compatible racks for improved versatility.

Buying a used reach truck requires that you choose a model that meets your needs and falls within your budget.

Small electric-powered models need to have their batteries checked to ensure that performance has not degraded with use, while those with combustion engines deserve just as much attention for this complex machinery.

The hydraulics that are harnessed for the mast mechanism must also be working smoothly, or else you will need to foot the bill for repairs in the near future.

Reach trucks may have suffered damage on the exterior sides and roof as a result of falling objects and impacts, while indoor use on flat surfaces means tyres and undercarriages usually fare better.
