Telescopic Handler Forklift Training
Telescopic Handlers are an invaluable tool in the construction and farming industries.
Telescopic Handlers are all terrain vehicles with either two or four wheel steer/drive and they can be articulated. Due to the fact that they extend the load forward of the front wheels getting progressively further away they act very much like mobile cranes, requiring a great deal of skill and concentration for them to be effective and safe.
Categories of telescopic handler forklift trucks:
J2 – Variable reach lift truck – up to 9m lift
J3 – High lift telescopic truck – above 9m lift
Attachments are commonly fitted to enhance the variety of tasks that these expensive vehicles can perform. Popular attachments are side shift, fork positioners and also non hydraulic attachments such as jibs, sand/grain buckets, bale spear, etc.
Types of forklift training courses available are novice, refresher and training for individuals with limited/previous experience. Forklift certificate issued on successful completion
Telescopic handler training can be completed for both construction employment which requires a CPCS accreditation or a general warehouse employment which only requires a generic accreditation based on what your employer accepts.
