Driving forklift trucks requires specialised training and instruction from fully qualified trainers. This can help reduce the likelihood of accidents and improve the safety of both drivers and pedestrians. Professional forklift driver training can also reduce truck downtime, racking and product damage. To drive any forklift truck correctly it requires training in a classroom and in a hands-on environment, thus ensuring things run as smoothly as possible once the candidates have passed successfully.
What is a Reach forklift?
A Reach forklift truck is an extremely agile forklift, which works well in tight spaces, they are usually found in warehouses. A major benefit of a reach forklift, is obviously the heights they can reach too. The main use of a reach truck is to load and offload products at big heights. However, unlike a counterbalance truck, a reach truck works best indoors. We can also offer a conversion course to counterbalance forklifts.
