A turret truck is an operator-up, very-narrow-aisle (VNA), custom built truck that is specifically designed to handle pallets in tight spaces. Most turret trucks can reach up to 40 feet high.
7'-9' AISLE - FLEXI TRUCK
Flexi trucks are similar to turret trucks in that the forks rotate, but a Flexi is capable of picking both sides of the aisle from either direction. The Flexi can also be used for other purposes around the warehouse.
9'-6" AISLE - REACH TRUCK
A reach truck is a narrow-aisle stacking truck that is designed for 'reaching' extreme heights. These trucks offer maximum lift height with exceptional maneuverability. These typically don't unload trucks and are dedicated to the aisles
10'-6" AISLE - WHEEEL STAND UP & SIT DOWN
3-wheel stand up and sit down forklifts offer great maneuverability as they can easily turn around tight corners. Although they are primarily used for loading and unloading docks/trailers, they can be used for stocking and transporting pallets.
12'-15' AISLE - LP & ELECTRIC CUSHION TRUCKS
Cushion trucks are made for smooth surface applications, like warehouses and loading docks. Due to the smooth design of the tires, these trucks don't do well in outdoor or uneven surfaces. These are the most typical forklift you find in most warehouses.
12' AISLE - LP & ELECTRIC PNEUMATIC TRUCKS
Pneumatic forklifts are similar to cushion trucks in design, but are more suitable for work conditions outside or on uneven surfaces due to their chassis size and their bigger tire size.
A stock picker, or order picker, is similar to a forklift but different enough for an explanation. It is designed to lift a person to a desired location on a pick-face or pallet rack. The picker is designed for picking from pallets or pick-faces, and will not move or put away pallets. These are popular in eCommerce industries where pickers are fulfilling individual orders rather than full pallets.
