A powered pallet truck, also known as an electric pallet mover are usually used in a warehouse for low levelling lifting of pallets. Powered pallet trucks commonly move pallets around the factory and can also load and offload pallets from a range of different vehicles.
The counterbalance forklift truck has two forks at the front and is used by manoeuvring close to a load to pick it up and then move it. It’s a standard forklift truck and is suitable for use both inside and out. Overloading the forklift can result in the vehicle tipping over. For this reason, it is vital that the user completes the appropriate training.
Reach forklift trucks are used in narrow aisles of warehouses and factories. With two forks that distribute the load, these are very agile machines which are good for working at height. The wheels have a tight turn radius and are predominantly used to offload products at larger heights.
A bendi forklift truck can also be known as a flexi or Bendi truck. These machines are often used in tight spaces and are steered via the front swivel articulation. Bendi forklift trucks are easy to learn how to confidently operate and manoeuvre.
A Moffett truck is a great machine for increasing productivity as it provides fast turnaround of work. Its light enough to be carried on a truck, eliminating the need for a seperate forklift delivery. As well as being economical, the Moffett truck is capable of performing a number of tasks a standard forklift can’t.
Our Reading training centre is based in Unit 32 Youngs Industrial Estate, Paices Hill.
