Forklift operators drive around forklifts (shocker, we know), moving materials around warehouses, storage yards, factories, construction sites and other work sites The machine itself has a hydraulic lifting mechanism, and forks for moving heavy and large objects.
Articulated forklift drivers
Usually warehouses use trucks which can load between one and five tons. But there are larger machines which can lift up to 50 tons. They are usually used for lifting loaded shipping containers. As said above, to operate a forklift you need to be a high-skilled operator.
Reach truck drivers
Reach trucks are designed to work in narrow aisle warehousing spaces. They have two outer legs that distribute the load weight; with a wheel configuration of two or one wheels per leg. The drive wheel is located under the operator's seating position. The driver sits sideways when operating the machine.
