Improve Efficiency With Electric Narrow Aisle Forklifts
If material handling is part of your operation, you know that space equals money. That includes the space between your racks. Narrow aisle forklifts allow workers to access materials in smaller rows, as narrow as 8 feet wide. We carry electric reach trucks and order pickers made by Jungheinrich, the leading narrow aisle forklift equipment manufacturer in the world, today. If you need a narrow aisle forklift in Dayton, Findlay, Toledo, or Troy, Ohio, Miami Industrial Trucks Inc. is the supplier for you. Learn more about our electric narrow aisle forklifts.
Order Pickers vs. Reach Trucks
While we have electric narrow aisle forklifts, there are two common types of narrow aisle forklifts: order pickers and reach trucks. Both are capable of maneuvering (and turning around) in aisles between 8 and 10 feet wide. Order pickers elevate the operator, allowing them to pick materials easily by hand. On the other hand, reach trucks keep the operator on the ground, extending the mast upwards to gather materials. Both types of narrow aisle forklifts come in electric-powered models that can be used indoors or outdoors.
