Sideloaders are the ideal forklift truck when it comes to carrying and handling long loads. They are mainly used in wood and timber processing plants, metals plants and various warehouses storing long products such as piping, sheet metals. The mast on the side of the sideloader and the flawless maneuverability given by this truck are features that make the truck perfect for narrow aisles. Using this truck helps you optimize space on the work floor.
Sideloaders are powered either by electric or an I.C.E. Sideloaders range from 5 tonne to over 15 tonne and is always used as a ‘Rider’, meaning the driver sits on the forklift as opposed to ‘Pedestrian’ or ‘Walker’ where the driver walks and pushes/pulls the truck (such as a Powered Pallet Truck).
