Short Turning Radius Forklifts
As the need for your company to add assembly lines, new products, and increased inventory to adjust and handle your customer’s needs, we have seen an increase in the need to utilize your floor space more efficiently. In some cases, vertical storage is an answer when a company cannot build out or move to a larger facility.
Another way to maximize more floor space is to invest in short turning radius forklifts. A short turning radius forklift maintains the same lifting capacity as a conventional forklift, but the counterweight is built higher instead of the traditional long back end of the truck. This enhances a company to get the same lifting capacity needed, but because of the smaller overall footprint of the forklift, they are able to get around areas to do the work that the conventional counter weighted forklift cannot do. This is especially helpful in older factories and plants that were not built with higher ceilings, and remodeling the factory is not an option.
A short turning radius forklift allows the forklift driver to operate in close, snug areas while creating an environment of safety by not having impacts into walls, racking, or machinery. Having a forklift with a good turning radius will improve safety, productivity and efficiency. Short Turning radius forklifts are typically a cushion tire style for inside use only. The footprint will vary depending on the capacity size of lift truck needed.
These forklifts are an excellent fix to a customer’s space problem if remodeling or building new facilities is not financially advantageous.
