Jungheinrich Narrow Aisle Forklifts
Here are add-ons which are very useful for narrow aisle lift trucks:
Side shift: Side shift is an option that allows the lateral movement of the load without having to move the unit. This enables loads to be accurately placed.
Tilt mast: The optional tilt mast enables the forks to shift both backwards and forwards. This is perfect in situations where loads aren't entirely level. To gain greater stability while transporting a loaded truck, the mast can be tilted backwards.
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 enable some NA lift trucks to lower and raise the operator whilst the forks are being lowered or raised. This offers utmost visibility and control when handling cargo at heights of 6 to 9 meters.
Forklift on a Ramp
Lift truck drivers must be well trained on the machines. They must be tested and qualified or certified. It is vital for anyone using a lift truck to be educated regarding safety regulations and problems. Drivers should understand how to adjust on uneven surfaces or in cases where the load weight alters the center of gravity. Safety guidelines cover safely using a forklift on a ramp, that is a frequent happening as the operator would normally need to drive up and down ramps to unload and load containers.
Tips for Using a Forklift on a Ramp
1 Drive slowly while approaching a ramp and when driving up and down the ramp. The possibility of accidents is higher when driving fast since this could upset the equipment's center of gravity.
2 When not carrying a load, drive the lift truck in reverse while moving up an incline on a ramp.
3 Drive forward while moving down an incline on the ramp with no load.
4 Tilt the forks a little back to shift the center of the load to the equipment's front, while moving up or down a ramp when carrying a load.
5 In order to make the load more stable, drive forward up a ramp while carrying a load.
