Stacker – a device that can be seen at almost any moment. Stacker is designed to carry cargo and put them on the shelves a great height. Without this device will store the goods simply impossible. There are various models of stackers, which are designed to work in different conditions. According to the design of any reach truck is a mobile device with a mast on which the up and down moving fork – for them and fits in the cargo pallets.

The easiest Stacker – a device that the operator manually carries on warehouse, as the cart. To raise with it a fairly heavy loads using hydraulic or electric drive. This stacker – the most compact and maneuverable, it is very convenient when working in small spaces where the aisles between the shelves are narrow and more bulky equipment there to turn. However, to transport cargo over long distances, using a hand pallet truck, it is inconvenient and time consuming. Its use in large warehouses is unprofitable. Better means of handling and moving goods on a warehouse – is self-propelled electric pallet truck. He moved to the premises by an electric motor, and the operator is placed on a special platform.

However, this is not enough to transport goods in warehouses of a large area, which uses high racks (about 10 meters). For such objects created special stacker – reach trucks. They are installed retractable mast, which would push shipments even to such a height. Reach trucks (high-rise stacker) equipped operator cabin, so It is convenient to travel long distances, carrying goods with good speed. Compared with other types of stackers, reach trucks is undoubtedly the most powerful device, but its application is impossible to close warehouses because of the large size.
