Lift Height

Lift height is defined as the height to which a fork can be raised once the mast is extended at its maximum reach.

Why is lift height important?

If you choose a forklift that doesn't meet the reach requirements of your premises then your daily operations could be hindered by this inadequacy. When loading items to high-up places, it’s vital to have a forklift that can extend to the maximum height required with total ease. Pick a vehicle with a too-short lift height and you may be forced to purchase a second forklift to accommodate this need. Selecting a forklift with the correct lift height for your needs will therefore save you time, money and the hassle of purchasing multiple machines.

Remember: don’t purchase a machine whose lift height extends beyond the height of your premises roof.
