Narrow Aisle Forklifts
Narrow aisle forklifts are specifically designed to be able to fit down extremely narrow warehouse aisles. This offers some benefits to business owners such as greatly increasing their space to keep things. Even smaller aisles could fit a lift truck through them. Narrow aisle forklifts are famous for their maneuverability and not much space is needed to move a narrow aisle forklift. Their design has allowed them to move without much space due to the fact that the majority of objects which hinder movement have been squished up the main lift truck body in their design.
Several of the downsides are that compared to standard forklifts, they are really slow. Like for example, if you are required to transport things across large distances, in terms of speed, these forklifts will not cut it. This problem can be solved easily if you also have access to a regular forklift. Some companies choose to utilize the narrow aisle forklift to transport the load to a central location. These objects are then handed off to a regular forklift that is responsible to take it the bulk of the distance. Typically, narrow aisle forklifts can not move as much weight so they are just effective for loads that are small.
