Counter-Balance Lift Truck

DistribuTek Leaning Center


Counterbalance Lift-Trucks are considered the "workhorses" of materials handling, and are used only in open areas and normal aisles (10-13 ft.). As with most of the industrial trucks, coun DistribuTek Leaning Center terbalanced lift trucks can be either battery powered (BP) or powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE); the latter can use either gasoline, propane, or diesel fuel. The tires used on the truck can be either cushion (CT) for indoor operation or pneumatic (PT) for outdoor operation. The load-carrying capability of the counterbalanced lift truck can range from 1000 to over 100,000 lb. As selective pallet rack is the benchmark pallet storage type, the counterbalance lift truck may be considered the benchmark storage/retrieval vehicle. When it is desirable to use the same vehicle for loading and unloading trucks and storing and retrieving loads, the counterbalance truck is the logical choice. For use in block stacking, drive-in and drive-thru rack and pallet storage frames, the operating aisles normally provided are suitable for counterbalanced trucks. Since counterbalance trucks must turn within a storage aisle to retrieve a pallet load, the aisle width required (10-13 ft.) to operate is wider than required for some other lift truck alternatives. The relatively low cost and flexibility of counterbalance trucks are their main advantage.
