Reach Trucks - Los Angeles

In Southern California, warehouse space is expensive and hard to come by.  Raymond offers a line of narrow aisle reach trucks designed for warehouses where space utilization is critical.  

The wheel base of a reach truck is the same as a counterbalanced lift truck, but the body is more compact, meaning that the turning radius is much smaller and it can be maneuvered in smaller aisles widths. 

Reach trucks are specialized forklifts that are not appropriate for all warehouse operations. For instance, general dock work like loading/unloading trailers or case picking are not the right applications for a reach truck. Neither are VNA racking configurations that don’t allow right angle stacking.  


When considering reach truck specs, it’s important to consider your warehouse space, racking, and other factors including:

  • Overall load requirement, including shape, dimension and weight
  • Load capacity needed to full elevation
  • Top load beam
  • Aisle entry
  • Base leg openings
  • Clear ceiling height
  • Clear aisle requirements 
  • Lift off space 

Types of Reach Trucks

There are several classification types for electric reach trucks that offer varying mast height, minimum aisle, maximum lifting height, weight capacity, battery voltage, fork travel and operator stance options.
