Toyota LP Forklifts
Propane cylinders are designed to take up really little space and could be kept inside the storage area or in an outdoor facility. It does take some time to switch out a propane cylinder, though, it still does require knowledge of safety standards like the OSHA or Occupational Health and Safety Administration and also needs operator training in order to be conducted safely.
IC forklifts are easier and faster to refuel, than electric lift trucks, but the internal combustion or IC engines produce major air-polluting emissions and are very noisy.
NARROW-AISLE LIFT TRUCKS
The Class 2 lift trucks includes many types of lift truck that are particularly made to be used in narrow aisles. The typical storage aisles are 12 feet wide, and this easily enables a counterbalanced forklift to turn in the aisle and put a load away. Usually, the very narrow aisles are approximately 5.5 to 6 feet wide, while narrow aisles are 8 feet wide. These narrow aisles require specialized lift trucks which are capable of putting away cargo without any turning at all or which are small enough to turn on a tight radius.
Turret trucks, order pickers and reach trucks are 3 of the most common narrow-aisle lift trucks. The differences between these forklifts are discussed below.
Narrow-Aisle Reach Lift Trucks
The traditional reach truck is the original narrow-aisle lift truck and these machines do not need a counterweight. They are also small enough to turn around in narrow aisles. Instead, stability is provided by the outrigger arms which extend in front of the lift trucks. However, depending on the storage configuration, these outrigger arms could prevent the lift trucks from getting near enough to the storage rack to retrieve and deposit loads. In order to overcome this specific situation, a pantograph was designed. The pantograph is really a reach truck which is made with a telescoping mechanism. This enables forks to easily and concisely reach into storage areas.
The ideal environment for a narrow-aisle lift truck is a place which has good lighting, is clean, and has good traffic flow, well-maintained floors, as well as an ample turning aisle.
