Order Picker Reach Sit Down Rider Rough Terrain Stacker Pallet Jack
The Reach Truck is commonly used in industry inside of a warehouse due to its manoeuvrability in the aisles of racking. Operators of the Forklift truck are required to hold a certificate of training which shows they have attended a training course and passed a test to a set national standard.
The Order Picker Truck is commonly used in industry both inside and outside of a warehouse to move loads at a low level. Operators of the Order Picker Truck are required to hold a certificate of training which shows they have attended a training course and passed a test to a set national standard.
This type of forklift is designed primarily for indoor use. It is powered by a large industrial battery. All the functions (drive and hydraulics) are controlled electrically. It looks much like its IC powered counterpart. The drive system and hydraulic systems are driven by electric motors. They can come in 3 or 4 wheel configurations. While most electric sit down riders use cushion type tires, some are ordered with a solid pneumatic tire and wheel combination. The four- wheel versions are Class 4 forklifts.
Manual Stacker Trucks, Semi Electric Stacker Trucks and Full Electric Stacker Trucks are used for pallet transfer along with the ability to stack pallets at various heights to provide maximum use of space available. Stacker Truck selection will depend on the amount of pallets to be moved and over what distance along with the weight of the pallets and height of the stacking required. Stacker Trucks can be adapted to handle specific items such as drums, paper reels etc. they can also be adapted to position pallets and stillage’s etc. for production line applications.
Hand Pallet Trucks (aka Pump Trucks) Hand pallet trucks are non- powered tools designed for the moving of palletised loads; typically up to 3,500kg in weight. They are simple in their operation with the operator sliding the forks into the pallet, ‘pumping’ the handle to raise the forks off the ground, and moving the load via the handle. The front wheels are mounted inside the end of the forks, and as the hydraulic jack is raised, the forks are separated vertically from the front wheels, forcing the load upward until it clears the floor. The pallet is only lifted enough to clear the floor for subsequent travel.
A rough terrain forklift is designed for carrying material over terrain that a normal pneumatic tired forklift will not. The most notable feature of the rough terrain forklift is the oversized, aggressive treaded tires. This enables the machine to traverse bumpy, soft or muddy terrain without getting stuck. Many models of rough terrain forklifts are also 4-wheel drive. A rough terrain forklift is a Class 7 forklift.
