Difference Between a Counterbalance Forklift and a Reach Truck?

Do you know the difference between the counterbalance forklift truck and the reach truck?

  • A counterbalance forklift has a heavy weight at the rear to counterbalance the weight carried at the front. Hence the name 'counterbalance forklift truck'. It also has a different fulcrum to the reach truck.

  • A reach truck is used in more confined spaces and has the mast reaching out to collect the load. Hence the name 'reach truck'.
