Caterpillar Narrow Reach Forklifts

Caterpillar Narrow Reach Forklifts

Narrow aisle forklifts
Usually utilized within warehouse operations is the Narrow Aisle Forklift. These types of forklifts are vital equipments in the business because their small size and extreme maneuverability allow warehouses to utilize space to maximum storing capacity. They could easily pass aisles as narrow as 1.8 meters wide, whereas typical lift trucks require at least 3.4 meters of aisle width.

This kind of forklift is sub-categorized as "narrow aisle forklifts" and "very narrow aisle forklifts". The first need 2.4 meters - 3 meters in aisle width, whereas the second can function in a 1.8 meters wide space.

The design of a narrow aisle forklift consists of forks positioned at right angles to the body of the truck. The trucks do not have to face the shelves, but instead drive straight down the aisle picking up loads to the side. This design feature is the key to their suitability for tight spaces.

Several very narrow aisle forklifts come with wire or optical guidance systems which ensure the forklift moves in a straight line down the aisle, that leaves the operator free to concentrate on load picking and placement.

The cushion tires which come with these types of lifts are made of solid rubber. The hard tires perform well on concrete floors and smooth, paved surfaces. Narrow aisle forklifts have electric motors suited for use within indoor places. Propane-powered models are available too.
