Reachtrucks, are one of many types of stacker trucks. Like all
forklift trucks, they have a mechanical lifting drive, different from
the strength of human muscles. Devices of this type differ from
standard (front) forklifts by a more compact structure, greater
maneuverability and the fact that the operator’s seat is positioned
“sideways” to the direction of travel. This unusual position of the
operator, paradoxically, helps to maintain good visibility when
maneuvering in tight storage aisles and provides a high level of
comfort and ergonomics when operating the truck (the operator
reversing the truck does not have to turn the head 180 °). Due to
their construction and properties, sideloaders are most often used
in warehouse halls of considerable height.
