Surrey Counterbalance Forklift Training - Demand is always high for our popular Counterbalance Forklift Truck Training courses. A Counterbalance forklift refers to a forklift with a weight which counters the balance, allowing the load's weight to be spread equally across the forklift arms. Counterbalance forklifts are made so the weight on the lift is counterbalanced by the weight behind the centre of gravity. The load is projected out from the equipment's front so it is visible to the driver of the forklift. This kind of forklift truck should only be used on stable, level ground or on a prepared surface.
Training is needed for forklift drivers to understand the proper method to spread the load equally across the arms of the forklift. Trainees will be taught how to lower and raise the load vertically and how to tilt the mast of the forklift both backwards and forwards between 5 and 15 degrees. People training will learn the RTITB standards needed for safe forklift operation. Trainees will also become familiar with the kinds of attachments for the arms of the forklift.
Types of Counterbalance Forklifts:
Walkie Pallet Trucks
Walkie Pallet Truck is a counterbalance forklift suitable for getting into areas which are cramped and small. This lift is really maneuverable and capable of accessing virtually whichever tight spot.
The Walkie Stacker varies from the Walkie Pallet truck mainly when it comes to lift height. The Walkie Stacker can access tight areas and has extra lift for high stacking capability. None of the Walkie line of lifts can be ridden. The operator has to walk behind them.
Rider Pallet Trucks
Rider Pallet Trucks are designed to be ridden. These riding lifts are great for dock loading and unloading.
Wave Work Assist Vehicle
The Wave Work Assist Vehicle is a counterbalance forklift designed to reach great heights of up to 17 feet.
Sit Down Counter Balanced Trucks
The Sit-down Counterbalance Forklift is made in three-wheel and four-wheel forklift designs. These tough and durable trucks are made to be ridden.
