We supply both brand new and second-hand refurbished units and have a variety of machines to suit different jobs and tasks. As it can be tricky to know which forklift will be suitable for your requirements, the expert team at OSPR provide tailored advice and source machinery specific to your needs.
Here are examples of questions that you may be asked when finding the best forklift for your purposes:
- What is the required reach height of the forklift?
- How heavy are the pallets?
- What terrain will the forklift be operating on?
- Will the forklift be entering shipping containers?
- What depth aisle will the forklift be working in?
One Stop Pallet Racking’s Forklift Range
Counterbalance forklifts are the most common machinery used in conjunction with pallet racking in warehouses. They have dual forks at the front and are straightforward to operate, transporting loads with ease.
Key Features of Counterbalance Forklifts
- A counterbalance forklift has a back-mounted weight that helps to balance loads.
- This is a suitable forklift for warehouses that require the operator to make turns or move in a circular motion.
- Counterbalance forklifts do not have extending arms, allowing them to move directly in front of the pallet or rack.
High Reach Forklift
High reach forklifts are useful for pallet racking systems that require access to pallets that are stored at extreme heights. A high reach forklift has the ability to extend its lift height over many metres, reaching beyond traditional counterbalance forklifts and order pickers.
Key Features of High Reach Forklifts
- Some high reach models can reach and retrieve pallets from heights of up to 18 metres (the maximum height varies across brands).
- High reach forklifts can operate in smaller aisles between pallet racking, whereas a counterbalance forklift may not be able to fit in tighter spaces.
- This forklift allows a warehouse to fully maximise the vertical storage space with the help of selective pallet racking.
A reach truck is a smaller machine compared to a high reach forklift, making it suitable for warehouses with even narrower aisles and reduced spaces. An operator normally sits sideways in a reach truck, leading to maximum support and maneuverability.
Key Features of Reach Trucks
- Reach trucks feature two outer legs that distribute the load weight; with one or two wheels on each leg.
- Though reach trucks handle smaller loads than a counterbalance forklift, their height capacity allows you to scale storage vertically.
Walkie stackers or walk-behind stackers are machines with a mast for lifting pallets to heights that an operator can walk behind and operate. Walkie stackers may be used in applications such as storerooms, small warehouses, and customer zone racking areas.
Key Features of Walkie Stackers
- Walkie stackers are either manual or powered.
- These machines are ideal for smaller loads to be transported around a warehouse for a few hours at a time.
- Walkie stackers are commonly used for transporting and lifting pallets where a regular forklift is not necessary, for instance, in smaller facilities.
Pallet Jacks are used to lift and move pallets around the warehouse with ease. Pallet jacks are the most basic form of forklift and are intended to move heavy or light pallets within a warehouse at floor level.
Key Features of Pallet Jacks
- Pallet jacks increase productivity, especially in larger premises and are great for moving taller pallet stacks.
This type of picker is a subtype of the walkie stacker, used for piece-picking units and warehouse inventory applications. With an order picker, the operator is lifted in the air with a load and manually retrieves an order from a rack, whereas most forklifts are operated from ground level.
Key Features of Order Pickers
- Order pickers are usually found in applications including low-level order picking, high-level order picking, and warehouses with very tight aisles.
- These pickers are sometimes used at elevations higher than the second level of racking in a warehouse or other premises.
