Types of forklifts When you join the course you should be familiar with all types of forklifts that you may work with in the future: hoist, lateral jacks - These are the most common types of forklift truck. Companies opt for traditional hand-guided lift trucks. Other types include: popular Melexes, front lifting equipment - in this case, the weight equals that of the forklift truck. We also distinguish: off-road trolleys - are an additional frontal lift. In their case, the load is lifted using forks or other equipment. They often help in warehouses when picking orders, specialised trucks - the operator is lifted by the forklift together with its load. Most commonly used in logistics and warehouse operations. It allows very precise placement of the load in the planned locations, and the operator can closely observe the process of stacking the goods, gantry lift trucks - The frame of these trolleys is in the form of a gate and the load is fully embraced, rising up inside it, internal mast lifters - As the name suggests, it is a type of forklift truck with an integrated mast. In the case of a lift truck with an internal mast that does not include the load, the goods are lifted on forks that retract between the arms. In contrast, the type of lift truck with an internal mast that includes the load has a fixed mast. With the internal mast, the fork tines are located outside the driving arms. The mast lift truck is well suited to warehouses where travel is limited to a certain height and it is necessary to move the load to a greater height at certain points in the warehouse.
