Our Pivot Steer Forklift Training Courses
The pivot steer forklift is often referred to as the ‘flexi’ or ‘bendi’ truck. It is commonly used in narrow and tight spaces, such as aisles, because its mast can rotate 90˚ on either side of the forklift. They can store pallets in 1.6m aisles and reach a height of 12.5 metres.
There are a few considerations that need to be made by the pivot steer forklift operator, which makes regular training a must. Each forklift model uses an articulated steering system with which the operator needs to be familiar. The size of the Pivot Steer lift also affects the manoeuvrability of the truck. It might affect the types of loads you plan to move with it, as well.
Our rate for training at your site is £275.00 + VAT per day for each training course, and daily mileage will be charged at 58p + VAT per mile.
