COUNTERBALANCE

The most common and widely used material handling machine and the workhorse of industry, capable of lifting small palletized loads in the workplace of less than 1 tonne, ranging to higher capacity 70 tonne container moving machines.

Counterbalance trucks can be three or four wheeled vehicles, powered by battery, LPG or diesel. As with all mechanical handling aids, Counterbalance operators must be trained, tested and carry a current certificate of competence.

 

REACH TRUCK

Fork Lift Truck in Warehouse

 

A Reach Truck is commonly used in warehouses and large distribution centres for moving around pallets of stock in confined spaces. The Reach Truck differs from the standard Counterbalanced Fork Lift Truck because of the way it is constructed and used.

Reach Trucks usually operate in narrow aisles and can lift palletized goods to heights of 12 metres. They are mostly battery operated and although may differ slightly from manufacturer to manufacturer are basically the same. As with all mechanical handling aids, Reach Truck operators must be trained, tested and carry a current certificate of competence.

 

POWERED PALLET TRUCK

The Powered Pallet Truck (PPT) is the basic warehouse workhorse; they handle goods at ground level, assembling orders, marshalling pallets, loading and unloading vehicles and a host of other important tasks. They are a service vehicle to the Reach Trucks (R/T), Counterbalanced Fork Lift Truck (C/B) and Very narrow Aisle machines (VNA) in other parts of the warehouse, this is an important function because these other machines are more specialized and often dedicated to one task or part of the warehouse.
