Narrow Aisle Forklift Specs
A narrow aisle forklift is a type of lifting equipment designed to navigate tight spaces. It is ideal for indoor facilities with aisles narrower than 12 feet. Narrow aisle reach trucks have a tight turning radius and forks that rotate 180 degrees, helping them navigate through tight spaces.
A narrow aisle forklift is driven by a standing operator. This is why these machines are often called “stand-up forklifts”. This is especially convenient for operators who need to get on and off the equipment frequently. Choose a stand-up forklift for efficiency, control, and visibility.
The average lift height of a narrow aisle forklift is 30 feet. This depends on the brand and model, as other options range anywhere from 20 to 40 feet in lift height. Narrow aisle reach trucks have a straight mast, meaning they can only lift vertically. This is one reason why these machines can lift so high without fear of tipping.
Even the most packed facilities with the tallest warehouse shelving need access to all of their inventory at any given time. If this sounds like your warehouse, a stand-up electric forklift may be the perfect solution. Narrow aisle reach trucks help operators retrieve and store pallets quickly.
Load capacity is the maximum amount of weight the equipment can lift. On average, the load capacity of a narrow aisle forklift is 4,500 pounds. Just like lift height, this number varies by manufacturer and model.
It also depends on the load center, which is the distance from the face of the forks to the load’s center of gravity. Check the load capacity chart on your reach truck forklift before operating.
