Our Counterbalance Forklift Training Courses

The counterbalance is named aptly due to the counterweight in the rear of the forklift. It compensates for the heavy load lifted by the front of the vehicle. Counterbalance forklift training is popular, as these machines are versatile and often used both outdoors and indoors. They require more space than other forklifts due to their wide turning circle.

This forklift either uses three or four wheels and is powered by gas, electric, or diesel. They are quite powerful and can lift heavy loads up to 5000 kg.

There are a few considerations when training on and operating a counterbalance forklift. It is not as easy to manoeuver, especially when moving heavier loads, because it requires a wider turn radius.

Proper training is crucial before operating the counterbalance forklift to move heavy loads.
