Thursday, 19 Aug 2010 ( #475 )
OAKVILLE — June 4, 2010 —High Reach Inc., designers and fabricators of quality, high capacity, fork lift trucks for more than 25 years, unveiled the ORION, a lift truck that boasts the tightest turning radius, lowest counterweight profile and most options and attachments available on the market today.
