Stand-Up Counterbalance Forklifts: How To Improve Warehouse Efficiency


May 10, 2022

Ever thought about how long it takes one to get on and off a sit-down counterbalance forklift? Step onto the truck, position the chair, and then fasten the seat belt. When you really think about it, the time spent on getting on and off a sit-down counterbalance could slow down an operator by about 20%. That is 6 minutes for a 30 min shift and 24 minutes for a two-hour shift!

In fact, there are ergonomic concerns regarding the sit-down counterbalance lift truck. This occurs when an operator is stepping up and down when entering and exiting the truck, which can increase stress on the knees and back. Whereas, the stand-up counterbalance provides easy entry and exit. See below:
