Main Difference Between Counterbalance Forklift and 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 on the front forks. Hence the name 'counterbalance forklift truck'. It also has a different fulcrum to the reach truck.

  • Reach trucks are used in more confined spaces and the mast reaches out to collect the load. Hence the name 'reach truck'.
