In narrow aisle operations, however, six (6) to ten (10) foot aisle widths require operations to incorporate narrow aisle lift trucks such as reach trucks. By replacing the large counterbalance weight found in standard forklifts with compact outriggers, reach trucks are uniquely suited to narrow aisle operations.
To compensate for the additional separation between the racking system and truck due to the stabilizing outriggers, reach trucks also utilize a telescoping arm that extends to reach the storage racking. Depending on the depth of the storage system, reach trucks are available in a standard, single reach model, or as a double reach model to accommodate two pallet deep storage options.
