Jungheinrich Narrow Aisle Forklifts

Jungheinrich Narrow Aisle Forklifts

The following add-ons are very useful for narrow aisle forklifts:
Side shift: Side shift is an option that permits the movement of the load laterally without having to move the model. This allows loads to be placed with a lot more precision.

Tilt mast: The tilt mast option enables the forks to shift forwards and backwards. This is great in cases where loads aren't entirely level. To gain more stability when transporting a loaded truck, the mast can be tilted back.

Extendable forks: The option of extendable forks helps the "reach" of the lift truck to extend for stacking pallets one in front of the other, referred to as "double-deep" loading.

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

Lift Truck on a Ramp
Forklift operators should be properly trained on the machinery. They are required to be tested and qualified or certified. It is important for anybody using a forklift to be educated about safety regulations and issues. Operators should understand how to adjust on uneven surfaces or in cases where the load weight changes the center of gravity. Safety measures include the safe operation of a lift truck on a ramp, which is frequently occurring since the driver will usually need to drive up and down ramps in order to load and unload containers.

Guidelines for Operating a Forklift on a Ramp
1 When approaching and driving up and down the ramp, drive slowly. The risk of accidents is increased while driving at high speeds since this can upset the equipment's center of gravity.
2 When not carrying a load, drive the lift truck in reverse when moving up an incline on a ramp.
3 When moving down an incline on a ramp with no load, drive forward.
4 Tilt the forks slightly back to shift the center of the load to the equipment's front, while moving down or up a ramp when carrying a load.
5 To make the load more steady, drive forward up a ramp while carrying a load.
