Forklift Reach Trucks


Forklift reach trucks, also known as reach forklifts or reach trucks, are specialized material handling equipment designed for efficient storage and retrieval of palletized loads in high racks within narrow aisle warehouses. These trucks are equipped with extended forks and a unique mast that allows them to reach deeper into racks while operating in tight spaces. Here's an overview of forklift reach trucks:

Key Features of Forklift Reach Trucks:

  1. Extendable Mast: The main feature of reach trucks is their extendable mast, which allows the forks and load carriage to reach forward into racks, maximizing storage density in narrow aisles.

  2. Narrow Aisle Operation: Reach trucks are designed to operate in narrow aisles, making them suitable for high-density storage environments.

  3. Telescopic Forks: The forks of reach trucks can extend to pick up or deposit loads at different depths in the racks.

  4. Double Deep Reach: Some reach trucks are designed for double deep racking, enabling them to reach two pallets deep in the rack.

  5. Operator Cabin: Reach trucks may have an operator cabin that elevates with the load, providing better visibility and control during lifting and positioning.

  6. Tilt Function: Many reach trucks have a tilting mast or fork carriage, allowing operators to tilt the forks for precise positioning of loads.

  7. Operator Comfort: Reach trucks are designed with operator comfort in mind, featuring ergonomic controls, adjustable seats, and easy-to-read displays.

  8. Electric Power: Most reach trucks are electric-powered, providing quieter operation and zero emissions, making them suitable for indoor use.

Benefits of Forklift Reach Trucks:

  1. High-Density Storage: Reach trucks maximize vertical storage space in narrow aisles, allowing warehouses to store more inventory.

  2. Maneuverability: Their ability to operate in narrow aisles optimizes warehouse layout and space utilization.

  3. Versatility: Reach trucks are versatile for various industries, including retail, distribution, manufacturing, and more.

  4. Efficiency: Reach trucks streamline picking and storing operations, reducing travel time and increasing productivity.

  5. Improved Safety: Reach trucks come equipped with safety features such as load stabilizers, operator presence sensors, and optional cameras for enhanced visibility.

  6. Reduced Product Damage: Precise handling and positioning of loads minimize the risk of product damage during operations.


  1. Lift Height: Choose a reach truck with a lift height that matches your warehouse's rack height.

  2. Load Capacity: Ensure that the reach truck's load capacity can handle the weight of your typical loads.

  3. Aisle Width: Measure the aisle width to ensure it accommodates the reach truck's turning radius.

  4. Operator Training: Proper training is essential for safe and efficient operation of reach trucks.

  5. Maintenance: Regular maintenance is necessary to ensure the reach truck's optimal performance.

Forklift reach trucks are valuable tools for optimizing storage in high-density warehouses. When considering a reach truck for your operation, assess your lift height requirements, space availability, and operational needs to choose the appropriate reach truck model and configuration.
