A combination of various other trucks, the Straddle Truck proves more efficient than others within the ABA A categories due to its superior stacking abilities, which helps to save time. Another benefit of using a straddle truck is that the wider legs allow the truck to lift pallets from ground level. As the forks are separate from the load legs, operators can lift from ground level without the risk of damaging the pallet.
