Flexi Narrow Aisle Forklift vs. Sit-Down Forklift
Finding the right forklift for your application is crucial. Whether you are looking to increase return on investment, safety or efficiency, choosing the right forklift is paramount to your success. A typical warehouse style forklift is going to be a sit-down counterbalance forklift. These lift trucks require the most amount of aisle width, typically around 12′ depending on pallet size.
