Walkie Reach Stacker Advantages

What is a walkie reach stacker?

Ideal for smaller lifting requirements, the walkie reach stacker is a walk behind unit that allows you to reach shelving, loading docks or loading and unloading trailers at a lift capacity of 1.2 tonne with mast heights reaching 3.8 metres.

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:

  • NO forklift license necessary
  • LOWER upfront costs
  • LOW on-going running cost with minimal wear components
  • RESALE – excellent
  • SAFER to operate
  • NO fumes or noisy machinery
  • STRONG but light & easily transportable
  • REDUCED product damage

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.
