Counterbalance vs. Reach Forklifts

counterbalance vs reach forklifts

Forklifts are not one-size-fits-all machines. Though they all have similar capabilities and the same end goal of efficiently moving material, understanding their differences is fundamental in the purchase process.

Warehouse space, loading requirements, storage space, and weighted material are all key players in deciding which used forklift style to choose. Though counterbalance forklifts have typically been the leader in lifting, a reach forklift might be the space-saving machine for the job.

By having a thorough knowledge of what type of machine best fits your customer, you will distinguish yourself as a trusted forklift and machine handling equipment dealer. You will then be able to predict some of your customers’ buying habits and better stock your inventory when purchasing from a trusted forklift wholesaler.
