When Less Is More: Maximizing Warehouse Space with the CF Series of Forklifts

by Feb 12, 2021Blog

In modern warehouses, maximizing storage space is key, and that is the driving spirit behind the new UniCarriers CF series of forklifts. When more space is not available, these forklifts are designed to let you do more with your available space.

Presented in four builds to meet the needs of customers in a variety of applications, maximum lift capacities for the CF series range from 10,000 to 15,500 pounds with maximum fork heights, fork face lengths, and other specs varying depending on the unit’s configuration.

The CF100 and CF120 forklifts, for example, have maximum lift capacities of 10,000 and 12,000 pounds, respectively. The lifting capacities may be a little lower than the CF135 and CF155 forklifts, but the lightweight builds of these machines offer several advantages over the bigger models in the line.

The biggest advantage of the CF100 and CF120 is lift height. Both units, when equipped with a standard mast, have a maximum fork height of 114 inches (9.5 feet), almost two feet higher than the CF135 and CF155, which top out at 93 inches. This allows for greater storage density in your warehouse, as you can potentially add another level of racking with the added lift height of the CF100 and CF120.


Truck proportions also influence storage density. For example, the CF100 has a chassis width of 46.5 inches, chassis height of 86.8 inches, and a length to forkface (distance from rear of truck to vertical face of the forks) of 103 inches, smaller than many comparable trucks and forklifts with higher capacities.

By deploying smaller trucks at your facility, you can arrange racking closer together due to the reduced size and tighter turning radius of the units in your fleet, allowing you to store more in the same amount of space.

But, of course, the key consideration is always going to be weight. If you need to handle loads in excess of 12,000 pounds, then you will want to explore more robust options like the UniCarriers CF135 or CF155, which tackle loads up to 15,500 pounds.

Engineered from the ground up to exceed customer expectations, these American-made forklifts from UniCarriers are equipped with V6 EPA-compliant engines to ensure quiet operations, reduce emissions, and increase fuel efficiency.
