There is one piece of machinery that is commonly used by all large scale manufacturing and warehousing facilities across the world. Forklift trucks or lift trucks as they are commonly known, are omnipresent in all industries. They are used to move heavy loads and machinery through a small distance, generally within a facility only. The forklift trucks most commonly used are the standard lift trucks which are technically known as counterbalanced sit- down lift trucks.

Types of forklift trucks or lift trucks

There are different types of forklift trucks available. They are categorized according to their reach and height, the type of fuel that they consume, their weight capacity or the attachment option that they have.

Almost all warehouses use the basic standard forklifts which have a capacity of 3000-4000 lbs. The standard lift truck is ideal for small and singular aisle operations. The minimum aisle width required to run this type of forklift is 11  feet. The aisle width that is required by a type of forklift truck is determined by the weight of the load that the truck can carry and the turning radius of the truck and the maximum height that the truck can provide.

The decision about what type of forklift truck to be used also depends upon the width of the aisles in the place of operations. The trucks can be classified in to three categories; wide aisle trucks, narrow aisle trucks and very narrow aisle trucks. The standard forklift trucks are meant for aisles greater than or equal to 11 feet of width. Forklift trucks like reach trucks are meant to be used in narrow aisles of the width 8 feet- 10 feet. The forklift trucks that are used in very narrow aisles are often moved with the help of a guiding mechanism. Turret trucks, Swing Mast etc are examples of very narrow aisle trucks.

How to decide upon a forklift truck

Buying a good lift truck is an investment, which if made wisely, will reap benefits in its overall operational costs. So there are some things that need to be considered before you make a decision about which lift truck to buy. The most important thing is the safety. Before buying a lift truck, look into what type of safety features are installed in the truck. Most standard lift trucks are required to have seat belts and safety pedals. Some manufacturing companies add additional safety features such as steep steering lock, overweight alarm etc. Lift trucks by Linde are installed and equipped with all the new age safety features. Apart from safety features, Linde lift trucks come with guaranteed infrastructure support and on-call service. Many companies offer equipment at a comparatively lower price, but the safety and support of the equipment cannot be guaranteed. If you are in Toronto and are looking for a lift truck, worth every nickel that you spend, consider Linde lift trucks. The service and quality will bring you again and again to Linde.
