Counterbalance Truck Training Course
Counterbalance trucks are the most common type of forklift truck. They are used across a wide variety of industries for numerous applications, with a range of attachments available to suit the needs of the operator and the load to be handled. These trucks have forks protruding from the front of the machine, meaning that they can be driven up to the exact location of the load or racking.
Counterbalance trucks are available as electric, gas or diesel powered and can include a three-wheeled model that provides better manoeuvrability in narrow aisles. It is essential for anyone who wishes to operate one of these trucks to receive the appropriate level of training. If the truck is overloaded then the forklift can tip over, causing potential harm to the operator as well as the property.
