Types of Lift Truck Training

Counter Balance Lift Trucks more commonly known as Forklift are the most common type of Lift Truck and have been since their invention.  On Counter Balance Lift Trucks, the forks protrude from the front of the machine, with no out rigging legs or arms, meaning the truck can be driven up to the exact location of the load or racking.Forklift’s are  versatile machines and widely popular due to the fact that they can be operated by many fuel options (electric, gas, diesel or propane), can be used indoors or outdoors, and are used to load and unload trucks and trailers.

Narrow Aisle Reach Truck
Narrow Aisle Reach trucks offer maximum lift height with excellent maneuverability. The name refers to the ability of the fork carriage to reach out beyond the stabilizing legs and therefore reach into racking. The combination of this reach capability and the stabilizing legs means reach trucks can lift to great heights while still operating in very tight working environments.Narrow Aisle Reach Trucks include stand up straddles, swing masts, side loaders and turret trucks. They are battery operated and recommended for indoor use.

An Order Picker Lift Truck is designed to have the operator riding in a cage welded to the fork carriage. Order pickers operators ride up and down with the load and must be secured to the truck using a special safety harness / belt and tether system to prevent falls. A special toothed grab holds a pallet to the forks. The operator hand transfers the load onto the pallet one article at a time.Order picker trucks which are also known as “order selectors.”  Order pickers are battery operated lift trucks and recommended for indoor use.
