Reach forklift trucks are used in a variety of warehouses and factories.  This type of forklift truck is used in warehouses where a company wishes to utilise the floor space as well as the height of the building.  It is common for reach truck drivers to have to stack pallets at 6m and higher.


A reach truck is mainly used indoors, due to its design. They can come in a variety of types such as 180º and 360º steering.  Some reach trucks are known as multi reach trucks, this means that the truck can be used as a normal reach truck or as a side loader.

You would have to specify what type of truck you wish to have your truck training on as the 180º and 360º training will not count as sufficient training should you wish to drive a multi reach truck.
