Before diving into why your operation should consider adding a turret truck to your fleet, the first order of business is answering the question, “What is a turret truck?”. Turret trucks are very specialized machines for very-narrow-aisle (VNA) applications. Immediately drawing attention due to its unique design, there are traditionally two options available, man-up, the more common option where the carriage and operator are lifted to retrieve and store pallets, and man-down, where the operator stays down while picking orders.
Increase Warehouse Capacity
Is your operation limited because you don’t have enough room to store inventory? Turret trucks are designed to increase warehouse capacity by reducing aisle widths, thus making room for more aisles. Since the forks are mounted on a smaller front mast that can rotate 180 degrees, the operator has access to both sides of the racking aisle without rotating the unit. VNA turret trucks can reduce aisle width by 50%. Save space and increase warehouse capacity with turret trucks!
With a pallet throughput 3x as high as the standard counterbalance forklift, no equipment can handle more pallets and loads than turret trucks. However, not only are turret trucks implemented in operations that are looking to increase volume and productivity, but also for those looking to cut costs. When turret trucks are added to a fleet, fewer operators are needed to produce the same output. Whether looking to increase productivity or cut costs, turret trucks are designed to optimize your operation.
