A turret truck is an extremely specialized machine designed for high volume handling applications. They are the fastest option in terms of load handling per hour and are often referenced as VNA equipment, or very narrow aisle, meaning they are ideal for small fitting areas within a facility.
One major benefit is the ability to obtain the narrowest possible aisle widths and the highest rack storage for products. To accomplish this, turret trucks are often used with wire or rail guidance and warehouse navigation systems. Using turret trucks paired with narrow aisle warehouse racking can give operators a 50% savings of square footage and increase throughput rates by up to 25%.
Turret trucks offer operators flexible cost savings and enhanced ergonomics. Additionally, our trucks can lift weight capacities between 2,200 to 3,300 lbs and reach heights from 23 to 30 ft high.
