What differences do they make?

Order pickers are the smallest type of commercial forklift. These are designed to fulfill individual purchases rather than full pallets. For example, it is typically used to access a single-piece or case picking, rather than to access and move an entire pallet.

Unlike most forklifts, which have a sit-down design in which the driver sits behind the lift, these allow the driver to stand on the lift area itself. This means that the operator also moves up and down with the lift, making it easy to pick out individual orders for customers.

Because of their versatile design, they can be used for a wide range of purposes. The most common uses of these include picking up small items, accessing larger items such as home furniture, carrying small boxes and even transporting multiple items at once.

These are significantly smaller than conventional sit-down forklifts, making them an ideal choice for smaller warehouses, fulfillment centers and other environments in which a larger, full-size one might not be appropriate.

The smaller dimensions also make them great for dense, tightly-packed storage areas with relatively narrow aisles.

Most of these are designed to reach a height of up to 240 inches. However, some models are capable of reaching even higher levels, with certain products capable of reaching up to 390” in height.

Order Pickers vs. Sit-Down Forklifts

There are several key differences between order pickers and sit-down forklifts. First, the designs are completely different — while a sit-down is designed with the driver seated well behind the lift, it has a platform from which the driver can operate the lifting mechanism.

This means that the operator can move up and down with the picker, rather than staying seated as they would with a conventional sit-down.

They are also significantly smaller than conventional sit-downs. They’re usually less expensive to purchase, relatively easy to operate, and designed for environments in which a larger one might not be suitable.

 There’s significantly less protection than there is inside the cabin of a normal one. There’s no protected cab, meaning that the operator isn’t as protected against the risk of falling items as they would be inside it.

Finally, there’s the productivity aspect. While they are designed for moving whole pallets at a time (a task they excel at), they are specifically designed for smaller objectives, such as accessing and picking a single product at a time.

Benefits of Having One

Compared to a conventional sit-down, order picks offer several advantages:

  • Many are priced below conventional sit-down electric forklifts, allowing you to equip your warehouse or storeroom at a lower cost.

  • Because of their smaller dimensions and design, these are ideal for fitting down tight, narrow aisles between shelving — an environment many larger ones may not fit into.

  • They allow your staff to move up and down with the equipment’s platform, letting your warehouse or fulfillment center staff pick up individual items without having to lift an entire pallet down from the shelf.

  • Used effectively, these can significant increase productivity in your warehouse and make fulfilling customer orders a faster, easier process.

  • Because of their simple design, most of these require relatively light maintenance and cost far less to operate than conventional diesel or propane.

  • By using it, you can pack your shelves higher than you might normally be able to, helping you more efficiently make use of your storage space.
