Call today to discuss which scheme best suits your requirements.

Product Specification

A reach truck as the name implies is designed to stack at height and is commonly used to store loads in a rack formation. It was originally designed to work in smaller aisles and as such it has a very tight turning circle. It also has forks which can extend up to forty feet.
Everyone has the opportunity to acquire a reach truck license (certificate) including people with no experience at all but we do offer both conversion courses and refresher training for the more experienced forklift truck operator.
