The Reach Truck enables companies to maximize space in comparison to a counter balance truck. As they retract the load a partial way into the footprint of the truck itself.
They can be a little tricky to master initially, as the Reach Truck operator sits sideways and on top of the drive and directional wheel also.
Couple this with 360 degree steering and it can take a little while to get to grips with it.
