Hyundai Reach Forklift
In most distribution centers or warehouse settings, overall space is usually limited. If you could get a machinery to operate in smaller spaces and aisles, the more storage space a company would be able manage. Hence, particular equipment has been designed for operating in very narrow aisles so that efficiency and space could be maximized.
The specialized reach lift truck has a mast which extends away from the body of the forklift. Usually, it is attached with a scissor mechanism. When the scissor is drawn in or compacted, the forklift becomes a lot narrower compared to the standard forklift.
Reach trucks are designed so the driver can stand while in operation of the machine. This is a contrast to the standard forklift where the driver is normally sitting. The standing operation area reduces the amount of room required for the compartment of the operator, allowing the equipment to achieve an even smaller profile overall.
With a reach truck, aisles could be made as narrow as 7 feet. Most regular forklifts need a minimum aisle space of roughly 11 feet; hence, using a reach truck gives approximately a savings of 5 feet on each aisle. When renting a warehouse on a square foot basis, this is a considerable amount of space.
A reach truck is normally steered using a rotating lever that is located on a platform beside the operator. There is a different lever utilized to control forward and reverse, the mast and for extending the mast. These controls are quite different compared to typical forklift controls.
Normally, the load capacity for a reach truck is less than that of a standard lift truck, depending on the kind. This is largely due to the machine's narrow design, that can result in a very high center of gravity. When the load is raised and the mast is fully extended, this is particularly true.
