The Vehicle Mounted Lift Truck is also referred to as the manufacturers’ name of Moffett or Moffett Mounty. Truck-mounted forklifts / Moffets are usually mounted on the rear the vehicle or its platform, they can then be disconnected and used to offload their vehicle, often being able to operate on rough ground, they can also be used in places where accessibility is a challenge, like construction sites. The range of truck-mounted forklifts offers lifting capacities up to 3.5 tonnes.

Most Forklift Training in Kent can take place at customers’ premises which often makes for better training due to using the actual machine in the real working environment.

When conducting training at customers’ premises we will require the following: an open area either indoors or outdoors, a number of pallets both empty and loaded, the use of any racking if available and a room in which to carry out the theory training.
