Jungheinrich Narrow Aisle Forklifts
The following add-ons are helpful for narrow aisle forklifts:
Side shift: The side shift option permits the movement of the load laterally without having to move the truck. This allows loads to be precisely positioned.
Tilt mast: The tilt mast option allows the forks to shift forwards and backwards. This is recommended in situations where loads aren't entirely level. In order to gain more stability when moving a loaded truck, the mast can be tilted back.
Extendable forks: The option of extendable forks helps the "reach" of the forklift to extend for stacking pallets one in front of the other, referred to as "double-deep" loading.
Operator platforms: Operator platforms enable some NA lift trucks to lower and raise the operator whilst the forks are being lowered or raised. This provides utmost visibility and control while handling loads at heights of 6 m to 9 m.
Lift Truck on a Ramp
Forklift drivers must be properly taught on the machinery. They are required to be assessed and qualified or certified. It is important for anyone operating a lift truck to be educated regarding safety rules and issues. Operators must know how to make adjustments on uneven surfaces or in cases where the load weight changes the center of gravity. Safety measures cover the safe use of a forklift on a ramp, that is a frequent happening as the driver will usually need to drive up and down ramps to unload and load containers.
Suggestions for Operating a Forklift on a Ramp
1 Drive at slow speeds while approaching a ramp and while driving up and down the ramp. The risk of mishaps is increased when driving fast as this can upset the equipment's center of gravity.
2 Drive the lift truck in reverse while moving up an incline on a ramp when not carrying a load.
3 Drive forward while moving down an incline on the ramp with no load.
4 While moving up or down a ramp while carrying a load, tilt the forks back slightly to shift the load's center nearer the front of the machinery.
5 In order to make the load more stable, drive forward up a ramp while carrying a load.
