telescopic forklift training kentThe Telescopic lift truck, also known as a Tele-handler Forklift is the most commonly used type of lift truck and is found in nearly all workplaces which require the use of a fork lift truck.

A telescopic handler, or telehandler, is a machine widely used in agriculture and the building industry. It is similar in appearance and function to a forklift but is more of a crane than a forklift, with the increased versatility of a single telescopic boom that can extend forwards and upwards from the vehicle. On the end of the boom the operator can fit one of several attachments, such as a bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or lift table.

The most common attachment for a telehandler is forks and the most common application is to move loads to and from places unreachable for a conventional forklift. For example, telehandlers have the ability to transport pallets from ground level and place on rooftops and other high places.

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.
