Widely known as the Raymond Reach, due to the fact that it was invented by the Raymond Corporation back in the 1920's. This machine revolutionized the way companies could manage their warehouse space and racking system set up. Prior to the birth of this versatile forklift, companies were limited to the manoeuvring and lifting height capacities of the sit down counterbalance. The spacing between racking systems was very wide and not too high. The reach truck has the capabilities of turning in half the space and lifting up to twice the height of the counterbalance and it also has the ability of extending or retracting its forks. The Reach Truck belongs to a family of machines known as narrow-aile machines.
In the hands of a properly trained and experienced reach truck operator, this machine could be essential in the process put-away and recovering freight to and from racking locations. Once the counterbalance has done its job offloading product onto the dock, it's usually the reach truck that will take over and complete the process into storage locations. Since its creation, manufacturers of reach truck machines have grown some of the most common are Raymond, Yale, Clark, Nissan, Toyota, Hyster, Mitsubishi and Crown. These trucks are electrically powered and rely on hydraulics for the lifting and functions. Once the basics are learned, an operator can pick-up and adapt to any other type of reach machine.
Just like on any other machine, an operator must be respectful and aware of the proper operating procedures prior to operating one of these machines. Our reach truck training course will help you to understand these safety concepts by providing you with the required theory followed by detailed hands on training. You will be encouraged to be safe and avoid being a part of the Canadian Statistics. Developing bad habits is something that many "experienced operators" have and we strongly discourage.
The focus must be on being a safe and efficient reach truck operator, with everyone's safety in mind. This will help to create a great working environment for all.
We strongly recommend operators who get a reach truck certificate to also get counterbalance certification. This will help increase their "hiring potential" and be more appealing to employers.
