About The Flexi Forklift

Now with AC Power

The Flexi is a very narrow aisle (VNA) forklift that is designed to work in aisles as narrow as 6’ to 7’ while using a standard 48” deep pallet.

When compared to the wide aisles required by conventional forklifts Flexi can increase the number of pallet positions stored by 30% to 40%. Compared to the narrow aisle widths required by reach trucks Flexi’s very narrow aisle widths allow an increase in storage capacity of 15% to 20%.

By utilizing the Flexi, you will gain access to this additional space with the lowest possible investment when compared to acquiring the space any other way. Significant savings and (ROI) are the result!

In some applications, the Flexi can be used to unload trailers, and take the pallets directly into the narrow aisle for placement in the racks. In these applications additional savings are realized by possibly reducing the number of dock personnel required, eliminating dock equipment, and by racking the space that would normally be used inside the warehouse for staging product handled by reach trucks and swing reach / turret trucks. This will accelerate your ROI.

Multiple models are available with capacities up to 5,500 pounds, and with maximum fork heights in excess of 40’, all with AC power.
