Forklift for flexible warehouse tasks
The Aisle Master-OP is a stand-on electric-powered forklift that combines the advantages of a narrow-aisle articulated forklift and an order picker for versatile operation in warehouse applications. The vehicle features a step-through operator compartment. A low floor height of just 11 inches enables single step access from both sides of the truck. That speeds up order picking, compared to the operator having to rise from a seated position. The truck retains all the advantages of the conventional Aisle Master—use both indoor and outdoors, for loading and offloading and stock replenishment.
