Variable Reach Forklift Description
Are you thinking about renting a forklift? Do you wonder if you might benefit more from using a variable reach forklift? Take the time to look at both warehouse forklifts and the variable reach option before you make your decision. You want to make sure that you are getting the best option for your needs, so think about how you will be using the machine. If you have high shelves, or plan to expand with taller shelving in your warehouse, then a variable reach forklift could be a good option. Make sure you know the weight capacity for the machine as well. Since they have a telescoping arm, they can be more difficult to balance.
Features of variable reach forklifts
The cab of the variable reach forklifts is very similar to that of a warehouse forklift in terms of the looks and the controls it offers. The big difference comes from the forks and the boom arm. Instead of simply lifting up and down, the arm has more articulation. It can also reach much higher in most cases. They still tend to have a low profile, so they can generally fit into warehouses and other areas with very little trouble. They also have easy to use controls, and comfortable cab areas for the operator.
How variable reach forklifts work
The variable reach forklift will work in much the same way as a traditional forklift, and the controls are actually very similar. The forks can go into a pallet, and then you can lift the pallet or other item into the air. This type of forklift is actually able to raise the items much higher. This is helpful for many different types of facilities.
