  • Stand-Up Forklifts: Are they worth it?

    If it is time to purchase a new fleet of forklifts for your warehouse, you may be asking yourself and your team many questions about how they use their forklifts during normal day-to-day duties. Consider the following questions:

    • What is the nature of your warehouse? (Consider distance, surface type, traffic patterns to each stop)
    • Do the operators travel long distances or many short runs with frequent stops where they must exit the lift?

    Most warehouses follow the mindset that a happy operator is also a productive operator. So while we agree productivity and comfort should go hand-in-hand, sometimes productivity must come first. In a sit-down forklift, drivers are forward facing with a twisting of the shoulders for reverse travel. A stand-up truck allows the operator’s body to turn in any direction quite easily while still maneuvering the load.

    If you believe a stand-up forklift will serve your operation better, please feel free to contact Southern Material Handling today to discuss your different options. A stand-up forklift has different operating functions than a traditional sit-down forklift so be sure to check out our training options as well.
