Lifting and Material Handling Equipment

An order selector, also called a stock or order picker, is a type of lift truck similar to a straddle reach truck except that it is designed for manually handling less than pallet load quantities in racking, usually in very narrow aisles (VNA) less than six feet (1.8 m) across and with a reach capacity of up to 40 feet (12.2 m), with 20- to 30-foot (6.1- to 9-m) models being the most common.[1] Another characteristic of an order selector may be the lifting of the operator in conjunction with the load. This type of a man-up design also features forks fixed to the platform that elevate the load and enable the unit to also be used for pallet support and stacking.
