Vancouver Counterbalance Forklift Training - Demand is always high for our popular Counterbalance Forklift Truck Training courses. A Counterbalance forklift is a forklift with a weight which counters the balance, allowing the load's weight to be spread evenly across the forklift arms. Counterbalance forklifts are designed so the weight on the lift is counterbalanced by the weight behind the centre of gravity. The load is projected out from the front of the machinery so it is visible to the driver of the forklift. This type of forklift truck should only be utilized on prepared surface or on level, stable ground.
Training is required for forklift drivers to understand the right method to spread the load equally across the arms of the forklift. Trainees would learn how to lower and raise the load vertically and how to tilt the mast of the forklift both forwards and backwards between 5 and 15 degrees. Trainees would be taught the RTITB standards required for safe forklift operation. Trainees will also know the types of attachments for the arms of the forklift.
Kinds of Counterbalance Forklifts:
Walkie Pallet Trucks
The counterbalance forklift referred to as the Walkie Pallet Truck is best suited for getting into areas which are both cramped and small. This lift is really maneuverable and could access virtually every tight spot.
The Walkie Stacker is another forklift which differs somewhat form the Walkie Pallet truck when it comes to its lift height. This machine is designed to access tighter spaces and has extra lift capabilities for high stacking. Neither of the Walkie line of lifts can be ridden. The operator has to walk behind them.
Rider Pallet Trucks
The Rider Pallet Truck is designed so the driver can ride it. These riding lifts are great for dock loading and unloading.
Wave Work Assist Vehicle
The counterbalance forklift called the Wave Work Assist Vehicle can reach heights as much as 17 feet.
Sit Down Counter Balanced Trucks
The Sit-down Counterbalance Forklift is built in four-wheel and three-wheel forklift designs. These tough and durable trucks are made to be ridden.
