Rico Equipment Custom Designs Straddle Trucks

RICO Equipment, Medina, Ohio, is a custom lift truck manufacturer that engineers trucks exactly to end-users’ applications. Rico has taken a simple style pallet stacker and created unique and innovative lift trucks to meet the demanding and ever-changing needs of its customers.

The company has maximized the efficiency and capabilities of straddle style lift trucks by designing a number of different models including the EX explosion-proof version for use in hazardous environments. Rico’s fork-over version allows users to handle loads where outriggers will interfere with their application. The reach truck will handle demanding loads and allow the operator to extend the load away from the operator for storage and handling efficiency. The counterbalance style walkie lift truck will solve user problems where outriggers are in issue as well as heavy duty loads. Automated guided pallet stackers allow material handling functions in a true “lights out” application. Walkie/rider and rider versions of these trucks also solve the speed and space restriction issues that many end-users encounter.
