Toyota LP Forklifts
Propane cylinders take up little space and they can be kept either outside of a facility or inside of a storage area. It does take some time to switch out a propane cylinder, although, it still does require knowledge of safety standards like for example the OSHA or Occupational Health and Safety Administration and also needs operator training in order to be performed safely.
Compared to the electric forklift, IC forklifts are faster and easier to refuel. Nonetheless, the internal combustion engine does produce polluting emissions and are extremely noisy.
NARROW-AISLE LIFT TRUCKS
The Class 2 lift trucks consists of many types of forklift which are specifically designed 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, narrow aisles are 8 feet wide, whereas the very narrow aisles are approximately 5.5 to 6 feet wide. These narrow aisles require specialized forklifts which can put away loads without any turning at all or which are small enough to turn on a tight radius.
Reach trucks, turret trucks and order pickers are 3 of the most common narrow-aisle trucks. The differences between these lift trucks are discussed below.
Narrow-Aisle Reach Lift Trucks
The traditional reach truck is the original narrow-aisle lift truck and these equipment do not require 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 trucks. Nonetheless, these outrigger arms can prevent the lift trucks from getting near enough to the storage rack to retrieve and deposit cargo, depending on the storage configuration. In order to overcome this specific situation, a pantograph was designed. The pantograph is actually a reach truck that is designed with a telescoping mechanism. This enables forks to reach into storage locations easily and concisely.
The best environment for narrow aisle lift trucks is a place which has good lighting, clean floors and well maintained floor, good traffic flow, as well as ample turning space.
These machines have revolutionized the material handling industry. Toyota stands behind their commitment to providing excellent quality and very durable machinery. As the company changes, they continually strive to apply solutions in order to give their diverse client base with the best products available.
