Counterbalance Fork Lift: B1 – Most used warehouse fork lift truck. You sit facing forward, forks in front. Either electric powered, gas or diesel fork lift trucks, B1 certification covers you up to and including 5 ton lifting capabilities. Over 5 ton requires another fork lift test which would be a B2 truck (over 5 ton).
Reach Forklift: D1 – Internal Fork Lift truck. You sit facing sideways to the forks and the forks reach out from between front wheels. Two types of reach mechanism are used – scissor and masted. These are mostly used when space is needed in warehouse locations.
Fork Lift Training can be done on our site if requested. Some companies prefer training at our site as the learner is often more relaxed and attentive when taken out of their normal working environment and can therefore learn more.
Most training is done at our Forklift training site at our offices on Scudamore Road, Leicester. Some customers prefer us to train their staff on site, which we are happy to do. It can be beneficial because the equipment they train on will be the equipment that they will be using and we can train to their particular environment. We will need facilities to do class room lessons and space to do the practical training.
