What are the major advantages of a walkie reach stacker?
There are a number of benefits to be gained from a walkie reach stacker such as:

Do they offer better value than traditional forklifts?
This really depends on what application you are using it for. A walkie stacker will suit small capacity items that are being moved around the premises, being used for less than 5 hours per day and are generally designed for indoor use. A traditional forklift is for heavy use and can be used just about anywhere. Walkie reach stackers do have their limitations so we recommend you contact a national supplier such as Fork Force to discuss your requirements.
