  • Their applications


What is a Reach Truck?

Reach trucks are the perfect solution for those that need to get down narrow aisles or those who want to make their warehouse more space-efficient by narrowing their aisles. A Double Reach model can pull and store pallets two deep. 

 Reach trucks can lift to 30 feet high and 2,500 – 4,500 lbs. You can also equip them with height indicators, lasers, and camera systems to avoid product or racking damage and see exactly where their forks are.

What is a Walkie Stacker?

Walkie Stackers are the go-to solution if you need something a little more powerful and functional than an electric pallet jack, but don’t need all the functionality of a forklift. Our walkie stackers can handle up 4,000 pounds and to reach heights of up to 189″, but modifications to capacity can generally be made by the Toyota factory. 

A Walkie Stacker is the best option when you need to lift to or above a second level, need to move product to and from a staging area, or just have a lighter duty operation. A stacker is a very economical choice over a forklift. Common applications are staging areas of warehouses, retail stock rooms, manufacturing production lines, lighter-duty warehouses, automotive parts stores, and manufacturing production lines.

What is an Order Picker?

Ever wonder what an order picker is used for? Imagine a warehouse with 1000’s different SKUs. An order comes in, then another, then another. You need to get three different boxes located at opposite ends of the warehouse and get them into fulfilling as fast as possible because new orders are coming in. You could get pallets down with forklifts, get what you need off the pallet, put the pallet back, take your item to fulfillment, and repeat the process repeatedly… OR you could use an order picker. 

With an order picker, you can locate items in the warehouse, raise yourself to the level of the it, hand-pick it, and repeat the process. This saves a LOT of time in the fulfillment process. And saving time in the fulfillment process reduces warehouse operating costs. Because operators rise with order pickers, safety harnesses are an absolute requirement to ensure the safety to your operators. Order pickers can rise upwards of 30 feet!

What is the Difference Between a Single and Double Reach Truck?

Single-Reach Trucks

This is the most common type of reach truck you’ll see. These models can reach a single pallet position into racking. This makes them ideal for single-deep pallet storage. So, the forklift is best for smaller companies with less product. 

Double-Reach Trucks

These forklifts are also called deep reach forklifts and can reach two pallet positions. This allows you to increase your storage density, making product loading and unloading easier.
