Benefits of a Sideloader Forklift

There are several benefits using a sideloader forklift. Loading on the side of the machine is safer and more efficient when handling long and bulky loads.

Safer Loading

Handling long loads on the side of the machine has proven to provide the operator better visibility of the load and increased lines of sight from the front of the truck and behind.

Sideloader forklifts have a platform where the load can be rested upon and handled safely. Traditional forklifts handle loads at the front of the truck, which oftentimes causes the load to be handled up in the air to avoid products and other obstacles which can be a safety concern.

In addition, Combilift multi-directional lift trucks move in all four directions quickly and easily. This makes it save and damage free handling of long and heavy loads through narrow aisles and doorways.

Space Saving

The operator can work in very narrow aisles and storage systems as well as traveling through doorways safely. Without the sideloader, it can be extremely difficult to maneuver a long loads in tight spaces or narrow doorways.
