Talk to a Forklift Expert
The narrow aisle forklift category includes reach trucks, in which the operator guides the fork to reach up and grab pallets, and order pickers, in which the operator platform can be raised and lowered to grab individual items when putting together an order. Generally, they are more targeted toward picking and putting away inventory.

Q: When you say narrow aisle forklift, just how narrow are we talking about?
A: Forklifts from Mariotti’s Mini AC Series are as narrow as 34” wide, enabling them to operate in much tighter spaces than traditional forklifts. Bendi’s Flexi VNA model can navigate 6-foot-wide spaces. And longtime industry leader Yale makes a versatile, standup, turret-style lift capable of operating in aisles 6 feet wide. Such models can be an ideal solution for high-density warehouses.
Q: What are my fuel source options?
A: Most narrow aisle forklifts are powered by a lead-acid battery, but new technology is changing the game. Many industry insiders believe that lithium ion batteries are the wave of the future. They are more expensive, until you do the math — that’s because they are more efficient than lead-acid batteries and require zero maintenance.
Q: How do I know whether a narrow aisle forklift is right for my business?
A: When it comes to selecting the right forklift for the job — and for your particular warehouse and storage environment — your best bet is to talk to an experienced forklift expert. The team at NITCO will ask a lot of questions about your warehouse, workflow and more to help you decide what equipment will best serve your needs.
