Very Narrow Aisle Forklift that Maneuvers in Reduced Aisle, High-Bay Racks with Ease, Speed, and Efficiency

A8 Very Narrow Aisle

Comparable to the A8 heavy counterbalance solution, the smaller A8 automated VNA navigates at high speeds in very narrow aisles. A slim profile and unique features enable it to maneuver in reduced aisle widths, increasing warehouse holding capacity compared to reach trucks. Moves versatile loads up to 6,600 lbs with a reach of 34 ft.

Designed to transport pallets and containers into high-bay racks with ease, speed, and efficiency. Ideal for use in warehouses/high-ceiling facilities because of its ability to navigate space constraints without vehicle transit issues.
