Locate and measure your highest shelf to understand lift requirements and then add another 150-200 mm to your measurement.
The extra space allows a truck operator additional clearance to lift the load off the rack, avoiding having to drag the product while loading or unloading shelves.
Some truck applications call for entering and exiting doorways. Perform a walk-through of your building and measure doorway heights to learn your lowered or collapsed height requirement.
If your forklifts also operate on lorries, or work outside under a roof, you need to take these measurements into consideration too.
When working in a confined space the feature called free lift should be considered. The free lift function enables the forks to be lifted to a certain height with the mast at collapsed height.
One of the many ways to keep productivity high in your operation is having the right truck fitted to your specific application and your environment. The type of mast for your truck can already make a difference: so here are all models you can choose from.
