Jungheinrich Narrow Aisle Forklifts

Jungheinrich Narrow Aisle Forklifts

The following add-ons are really useful for narrow aisle lift trucks:
Side shift: The side shift option permits the movement of the load laterally without having to move the truck. This enables loads to be accurately positioned.

Tilt mast: The optional tilt mast allows the forks to shift both backwards and forwards. This is perfect in situations where loads aren't entirely level. To be able to gain more stability while transporting a truck that is loaded, the mast could be tilted backwards.

Extendable forks: Extendable forks help the reach of a forklift to allow for the stacking of pallets one in front of the other. This is referred to as double deep loading.

Operator platforms: Operator platforms allow some NA forklifts to raise and lower the operator while the forks are being lowered or raised. This offers optimum visibility and control when dealing with cargo at heights of 6 m to 9 m.

Lift Truck on a Ramp
Drivers need to be correctly trained and are required to be assessed and licensed. It is essential for anyone using a lift truck to be really knowledgeable about safety concerns and rules. Operators should understand how to adjust on uneven surfaces or in cases where the weight of the load changes the center of gravity. Safety guidelines cover the safe use of a lift truck on a ramp, which is always happening as the driver will usually need to drive up and down ramps to load and unload containers.

Tips for Operating a Forklift on a Ramp
1 When approaching and driving down and up the ramp, drive slowly. The possibility of mishaps is increased while driving at high speeds as this can upset the machine's center of gravity.
2 Drive the lift truck in reverse when moving up an incline on a ramp while not carrying a load.
3 Drive forward while moving down an incline on the ramp with no load.
4 When moving down or up a ramp while carrying a load, tilt the forks back a little to shift the load's center closer to the front of the machine.
5 In order to make the load more steady, drive forward up a ramp while carrying a load.
