Choose From Available "Reach Truck" You Require Reach Trucks are used in warehouses for material handling of loads for greater heights (usually 7 metres or more) and are best suited for narrow aisle (< 2.5metres) applications.
Reach Trucks are used in warehouses for material handling of loads for greater heights (usually 7 metres or more) and are best suited for narrow aisle (< 2.5metres) applications. They have two protruding outer legs with one or two driven wheels. The drive wheel is generally a singular wheel which is located beneath the driver’s seat or at the rear end of the truck.
Reach trucks have their wheel base on par with traditional forklift trucks but are compact in design thereby facilitating a much smaller turning radius (typically 30-40%) lesser than the traditional counter balance forklifts. They are available in two types viz. moving carriage type and moving mast type, since they are equipped with either a pantograph (scissor arm) OR moving mast. This allows the extension of the forks to reach the load (hence the name Reach Truck!) in case of tight aisle widths.
There is also the Straddle configuration wherein the forks straddle the paddle but this is not recommended as it needs for more storage space.
While operating, the operator is always seated sideways in the reach truck since he feels more comfortable and can exercise better control in the narrow aisle. Reach Trucks are specifically designed to work for indoor applications where a high frequency of material handling is required for a relatively large storage density. Some applications include tall warehouses in metro cities, fulfilment centres, smart warehouses of manufacturing companies etc. However, reach trucks can also be used outside on a very flat and smooth surfaces.
The bottom line is, reach trucks can replace forklifts, but the reverse in not possible. And this is the reason why the reach truck is such an asset for your warehousing fleet!!
But this brings is to the next important consideration and that is pricing. Typically, reach trucks are available in the price range of Rs.30lac to 40lac (44,000-60,000 USD) thereby calling for a very huge initial CAPEX.
However, just like other material handling equipment, the major depreciation in the price of a Reach Truck comes after the use of first 3-4 years. This is with a long remaining service life, so you can buy a used/preowned/second hand reach truck at a much competitive price point. This clearly means better ROI.
