What is an order picker forklift?

An order picker forklift is also sometimes referred to as a stock picker forklift, and they are defined as follows: "Order picking forklift truck means a forklift truck where the operator controls are incorporated with the lifting media and elevate with the lifting media."

Typically this means that for an order picker you stand on a platform wearing a harness, and to get stock that is stored high on pallet racking you go up with the platform and pick the stock by hand off the pallet racking and onto the platform before returning to the ground. This differs from a regular forklift, in that, a regular forklift you always remain at ground level when the mast and forklift tynes are moved up and down to retrieve pallets of goods from high on the pallet racking.
