A walkie stacker is similar to a pallet jack, but more robust as it has the ability to lift items up to different heights. This type of forklift is commonly used for tasks that involve moving and stacking items across a warehouse or distribution center.
An order picker enables workers to safely and efficiently reach items or orders on tall shelves within a warehouse by lifting the operator to the same height as the item being picked. This type of forklift is also equipped with a platform attachment to hold items. Hence, it has a narrow frame for smooth operation in tight warehouse aisles.
