Pivot Steer forklifts are very versatile. They are made by a variety of manufacturers including Bendi, Flexi and Aislemaster. They can offer the opportunity to stack in very narrow aisles, sometimes as little as 1.6 metres, and still be able to stack to high levels. To improve versatility further, they can operate on regular ‘floated’ concrete surfaces, and can therefore safely be used to unload or load lorries in yard areas. The steering takes some time to master, and operators need to appreciate that on this type of forklift, even where stationary, steering is moving !
