Cat® reach trucks offer greater efficiency, superior ergonomics and higher returns on your investment.
Today’s Cat reach forklift trucks combine modern styling with state-of-the-art engineering to bring you exceptional levels of productivity. Designed with performance, durability and profitability in mind, our reach trucks excel with their high efficiency, superior ergonomics and low maintenance needs.
You can expect to see increased output from your driver and truck, while saving on servicing, repair and energy bills. It all adds up to a lower total cost of operation (TCO). Reach trucks are amongst the most popular types of warehousing equipment and are used in many warehouse applications where high storage density or fast storage and retrieval of goods are required.
Reach forklift trucks have a mast which can be moved forwards with the load. This function, together with a narrow chassis, specifically equips them for pallet storage and retrieval in narrow aisles. Depending on model and mast choice, our reach trucks can lift to levels of up to 13 metres in high racking.
Our reach truck range is designed around your operators to maximise their comfort and efficiency with ergonomic benefits such as:
- Precise manoeuvring of the truck and its load, with minimum effort, thanks to the latest advances in hydraulic and steering control
- Clear forward, upward and all-round views for fast but accurate pallet handling.
- Easy on-off access to a spacious, unobstructed and protective cabin with an intermediate step and ergonomic grab handles.
- Smooth reach movements ensuring rapid, accurate lifting, lowering, tilt and side shift functions.
- Quiet, jerk-free and highly stable performance from the latest mast and reach carriage technology.
- Confident and safe operation, supported by automated safety aids such as automatic control of speed according to steering angle and fork height.
Extra reach truck choice
To maximise choice and provide an ideal solution for any specific warehouse application, we offer four reach truck ranges – plus our specialised multi-way reach truck and four-way reach truck models. There are variations in design and feature specification between these ranges, which may appeal to different users, but whichever you choose you can be sure of full Cat product quality.
Our NR12-14N3(L)(C) range contains our most compact light reach trucks – ideal for the narrowest aisles, and very economical. They perform light and medium duties, lift up to 7.25 metres (depending on mast choice), and offer capacities of 1.2 and 1.4 tonnes.
Our NR14-16N2L range is another entry-level light reach truck choice, enabling more users to move up to a Cat reach truck. These trucks are also for light and medium duties, lifting up to 7.5 metres (depending on mast choice) and offering capacities of 1.4 and 1.6 tonnes.
Our NR16-25N3H(X) range might be your choice if, for example, you see ergonomics and comfort as your very highest priorities. It contains standard duty, heavy duty and extra-high lifting models, offering lifts up to 12.1 metres and capacities between 1.6 and 2.5 tonnes (depending on model and mast choice).
Our NR14-25N2(S)(H)(C)(X) range might be your choice if, for example, high residual capacity and operator comfort are especially important in your application, and even more so if the driver needs to enter and exit the truck frequently. It contains standard duty, heavy duty, straddle-leg, compact and extra-high lifting models, offering lifts up to 13 metres and capacities between 1.4 and 2.5 tonnes (depending on model and mast choice).
All our reach trucks come in various configurations to suit a wide variety of demanding applications, and your Cat lift truck dealer will help you find the best one to suit your requirements. Alternatively, enter your requirements into our lift truck selector and it will return the reach truck model best suited to you.
