Electric Battery Powered Reach Truck

What is an electric reach truck?

Jun 30, 2023

An electric reach truck is a type of forklift that is powered by an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. Electric reach trucks can be divided into two types: seated reach truck and standing reach truck.It is commonly used in warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities to move and lift pallets and other heavy loads.

Reach truck

Electric reach trucks are designed to operate in narrow aisle spaces, making them ideal for high-density storage environments. They are equipped with a specifically designed mast that can extend forward, allowing the operator to reach into racking systems and retrieve or place loads at various heights.

Classification of electric reach trucks can vary depending on the manufacturer and specific features, but generally, they are categorized based on factors such as load capacity, lift height, and aisle width.

Load Capacity: Electric reach trucks come in various load capacities, ranging from around 1,500 kilograms (3,300 pounds) to over 2,500 kilograms (5,500 pounds). The load capacity determines the maximum weight the truck can safely lift and move.Lift Height: The lift height refers to the maximum height the reach truck mast can reach. It typically ranges from around 3 to 10 meters (10 to 33 feet) or more. The lift height is an important consideration for warehouses with high shelving or racking systems.

Aisle Width: This classification refers to the minimum width required for safe operation of the reach truck. Narrow aisle reach trucks are designed to navigate in aisles as narrow as 2.5 meters (8 feet), while wide aisle reach trucks require wider spaces.

Seated reach truck

In addition to these classifications, electric reach trucks may have other features such as different drive configurations (3-wheel or 4-wheel), specialized attachments for specific applications (such as side shifters or fork positioners), and advanced safety systems (such as load weight indicators or height sensors).

It's important to consult the manufacturer's specifications and guidelines for accurate and detailed information on the classification and capabilities of a specific electric reach truck model.
