If you’re preparing to train for your forklift certificate, or you’re newly qualified, there are several different kinds of forklifts you can work with. We’ve already discussed at length the essential things you need to know about forklift training, including the reach and counterbalance varieties of the vehicle.  But in short, a reach truck has a longer extension and can ‘reach’ beyond itself while a counterbalance is balanced at the back with a weight and has a more restricted range of motion.

 

What is a Bendi Forklift?

One very popular form of reach forklift is the Bendi or Flexi truck, which is also sometimes called the pivot steer forklift. The advantage of this model is that it’s easier to drive and position, as well as being better for small spaces because of its compact size. Its flexibility comes in part from its articulated design, meaning it has a joint or a bend in the middle.  The Bendi forklift is quite new compared to traditional reach and counterbalance trucks, and learning to train in one will give you an edge in the job market because fewer operators have experience using them but more and more businesses are starting to get them into their warehouses.
