The order picker truck is commonly used in industry both inside and outside of a warehouse. Order pickers are categorised as low, medium and high level.
Low level: Generally used for loads that can comfortably be picked up from ground level and transported directly to a lorry, van or other loading area.
Medium level: Similar to a small reach fork lift truck, but different in the fact that the pickers are manoeuvred from a cage attached to the fork carriage, and pallets are used to manually handle items on and off the pallet. They can operate in very narrow aisles, using wire or rail-guides and can move quickly between the picking stations.
High level: The order pickers are manoeuvred from within a cage attached to the fork carriage, and pallets are used to manually handle items on and off the pallet. The forks can be raised or lowered to maintain a comfortable working height for loading items on the pallet. They can operate in very narrow aisles, using wire or rail-guides and can lift loads up to 15.85 meters high, moving quickly between the picking stations.
A training course is available for each category, however completion of the high level order picker will equip you to operate all three categories.
